Traditional Funeral Services

We offer several options for those families who choose to memorialize their loved ones through a traditional funeral. Please read below for descriptions of each of our traditional funeral options.

Traditional Burial

Immediate Burial refers to the burial of the deceased's body without any accompanying services. The body of the deceased is embalmed (optional), prepared, casketed, and transported to the final resting place by the funeral director and their staff.

Traditional Funeral with Visitation / Viewing

  • Many families choosing the traditional funeral route also tend to choose to have a visitation and viewing prior to the funeral ceremony. Typically, the visitation / viewing is held prior (1-2 hours) to the funeral ceremony. Graveside and committal services for the deceased are usually held during the morning or afternoon hours of the following day.
  • Another option for the traditional funeral with a visitation / viewing is to schedule the services over a 2-day period. In this setup, the visitation / viewing is held one day and the funeral ceremony and graveside service are held the following day.

Traditional Funeral with Cremation

Some families wish to incorporate cremation into their memorialization of a loved one. For those families, there is the option of having a traditional funeral with a visitation / viewing followed by cremation.

Families often believe they are limited to having services such as these at the funeral home; however, this is not the case. While we offer the use of our facilities to every family we serve, we are also very open to arranging and directing visitations and funeral ceremonies at alternative locations designated by the family.

Shipping / Forwarding of Remains

We also offer the option of shipping remains. In these cases, the remains are either transported by our funeral director and staff to the location specified by the family, or the remains are shipped via aircraft to the secondary location. Charges for this service will vary depending on the distance and method of transportation chosen.
