We offer several different options to serve those families that choose our cremation services. Please read below for brief descriptions of each type of these services.
Direct cremation refers to cremation with no accompaning services arranged by the funeral home. Following the completion of the cremation, the deceased's cremains (cremated remains) are returned to the family for scattering, burial, or other means of final placement. In many cases, a family may choose the direct cremation service and then host a memorial service on their own at a location other than the funeral home.
Another cremation option that is offered by our funeral home is Cremation with a Memorial Service. This service includes the cremation of the deceased and a memorial service (service without the body present), arranged and directed by the funeral director and staff, at the funeral home or another location.
Many families wish to memorialize their loved one with the traditional funeral experience, but also wish to use cremation as the means of final disposition. For these families, we offer the option of Cremation with a Traditional Funeral.
With this option, the body is embalmed and prepared, casketed, and presented for a traditional visitation and public viewing. A funeral service (service with the body present) is then held to honor the deceased. Following the funeral services, the body is then cremated and the cremains (cremated remains) are returned to the family for scattering, burial, or storage.
For those families who wish to have their loved ones' cremated remains shipped to another location, we do offer shipping services. For a small fee, we will package and ship (via USPS) cremains to any specified location.
