Cremation Services

Cremation has rapidly grown in popularity over the last decade. Therefore, to keep up with this demand we have perfected our cremation process and have made cremation a staple part of our funeral home. For the most part, our cremation services will differ in terms of the type of ceremony you would like with the actual cremation. Below we have highlighted some of the most common cremation packages people choose.

Direct Cremation

This is our simplest cremation service available. It does not involve any type of ceremony. Essentially the fee covers the completion of the necessary paperwork, removal of the deceased from the place of death, and the actual cremation of the deceased.

A Memorial Service or Celebration of Life after Cremation

This cremation package includes all the aspects of a direct cremation plus your choice of a memorial service or celebration of life. This option gives family more time to think about the ceremony, the service can be more personalized, and it allows for more flexibility as opposed to a traditional funeral. Often times, families have the memorial service or celebration of life weeks or even months after the death. 

Cremation with a Traditional Funeral Service

This is much like our traditional funeral service we offer with burial. It includes a viewing/visitation with an open or closed casket followed by a traditional funeral ceremony usually in a church. A specially-selected cremation casket is used during the visitation.  After the funeral, the deceased is then cremated as opposed to being buried.  Once the funeral service has concluded the deceased is cremated as opposed to being buried. 

We allow for customization and will likely be able to meet any of your specific needs and wishes. We are fairly flexible with our cremation service package in terms of the type of ceremony you would like to have, the funeral products you desire, and any other requests you want to include. 

To enhance the service, we offer the following cremation products:

Cremation UrnsThese containers are designed to hold cremated remains. We offer a large selection of beautiful urns in a variety of shapes and sizes. We carry urns constructed from bronze, stone, wood, metal or porcelain.

Cremation CasketsIf your family chooses to hold a viewing prior to cremation, we offer a wide variety of alternative containers and caskets to choose from.
