Tallinna Krematoorium offers two ways of organizing a cremation funeral: a conventional cremation funeral with a ceremony and an urn funeral.
The conventional cremation funeral ceremony takes place around an open wood casket, which is lowered down to the basement at the end of the ceremony, symbolizing the more accustomed grave funeral. The deceased is cremated after that and is placed in an urn, which can be buried, or the ashes in it scattered. For a funeral organized by Tallinna Krematoorium, there is no need to carry the casket into the chapel, which eliminates unpleasantness due to bad weather (rain, sleet, snow, storms, etc.) and solves the casket-carrier problem.
The cremation funeral ceremony can also take place elsewhere than the crematorium chapel, the coffin with the deceased may be transported to home or to church for the ceremony, after which it is returned to the crematorium and cremated.
The urn funeral is very similar to the cremation funeral, but instead of the casket, there is the urn, which is taken out of the chapel at the end of the ceremony, and can then be buried or the cremated remains in it scattered.
