Our Cremation Services

candle hand cremation options

We offer three different cremation options. We are flexible and allow for some modification of these services. Below are small descriptions for each of our cremation options:

DIRECT CREMATION

Direct cremation is the simplest cremation service that we offer. It involves the completion of all required paperwork and the transportation of the deceased’s body from the place of death to the crematory. 

MEMORIAL SERVICE AFTER CREMATION

This option allows for a memorial service to take place after the body has been cremated. A memorial service in general allows for more freedom as opposed to a traditional funeral. This option is great if you want more time to plan for a ceremony. With this option, the urn can also be on display at the memorial service. 

TRADITIONAL CREMATION SERVICE

This option is rather similar to a traditional funeral service. The body of the deceased is placed in a special cremation casket or rental casket, and is the focal point of the ceremony. A viewing/visitation can occur prior to the funeral service. After the funeral service has concluded, the body is cremated as opposed to being buried. Once the cremation has occurred, the loved one’s ashes are returned to the family. Then you can decide to scatter, bury, or retain the ashes in an urn.
