When a loved one dies and one of their last wishes has been cremated, you have the choice of whether to hold the funeral service after the cremation or before. One of the reasons families choose to attend a funeral service before the body is cremated is because they want to see the body before it is cremated.
Having a coffin at a funeral is very important for some families as it gives them a sense of unity that they might not get if a corpse is not available. You can now arrange the best funeral with the basic funeral facilities from professionals.

While many prefer a post-cremation memorial service, there are still plenty of options for families wanting a pre-cremation memorial service. Many funeral directors these days have coffins that families can rent rather than buy. They are mainly used for relatives who will someday be cremated, but the family still wants to arrange a traditional resurrection for their deceased loved ones.
One thing to keep in mind when deciding to attend a funeral is that you may need to embalm or dose a loved one's body a little so that it can be presented for viewing. It's an extra price to pay for a family but if it allows for closure and quiet then it's well worth the price.
