11. There is variation in how a crematorium is used for a funeral. In many cases, a ceremony led by a religious or non-religious celebrant will take place at the crematorium. Sometimes, a service or commemoration may occur away from the crematorium, at a place of worship or other location chosen by the family, before or after which a brief committal ceremony takes place at the crematorium. By including the availability of a service room or chapel, we sought to differentiate between a standard cremation and a direct cremation.
