Many funeral homes and cremation providers have a lot of options available today that weren’t always there in past services. Today, for example, when you have cremation services in Charleston, IL for a loved one, you may very well have the option of live streaming that service. There are many benefits to doing that and here are a few to consider.

Loved Ones Far Away Can Watch

Even if you hold off on certain services so family members have time to plan and travel, it’s always possible that not everyone can make it to the right area at the right time. Those who aren’t able to get to the service are still able to participate and watch the service as it’s happening. They can get the closure they need from afar and pay tribute to your loved one in their own way.

People Who Are Under The Weather Can Attend Remotely

Even if all or your family plans to make it to the memorial service, there’s no telling when someone might catch a cold or something worse that they don’t want to spread around. It’s better for them to stay away from the crowd, but it’s rotten to think that they can’t attend the service. Instead, they can watch what goes on remotely so they are still resting and keeping their germs away while participating in the service from a distance.

Social Distancing And Restrictions

Today’s society has a lot of restrictions on it and even as some of those lift, people are jumpy about being in larger group settings. If your area has restrictions in place or if you know your loved ones aren’t ready to gather as a large group yet, live streaming the service can allow everyone to be together, yet apart at the same time. Right now, some of these options are about the best you can do with what you have to work with.

Small Space, Large Audience

If you want to keep the cremation services themselves smaller and more intimate, you can just invite family and close friends to the funeral home for the memorial service. But you can open the rest of the services up to the public through live streaming so distant relatives and friends can still watch what happens at home if they wish.
