We take great pride in serving our client families as they wish to be served. We are pleased to offer our expertise in cremation to those families that wish to handle arrangements in this manner. We offer a number of options for your consideration:
Full Service Funerals with Cremation
Families may avail themselves of the psychological benefits of the visitation and funeral service, followed by cremation. Most families prefer some formal observance in accordance with their particular faith. Services and caskets are available to appropriately serve every segment of our clientele, and our funeral directors will be pleased to explain your options in this regard.
Cremation or Rental Caskets
In order to provide another option, we also offer the use of a Ceremonial Caskets that allow for the visitation and services without the cost of purchasing a casket. These units surround a cremation container, and are trimmed to provide the appearance of a casket that is totally appropriate for use in public. This unit provides families with another option, preserving the most important part of a funeral service, while allowing for considerable savings. Only the cremation insert is then taken to the crematorium, allowing for total dignity and discretion in handling the remains of the deceased.
Memorial services are generally held at the funeral home chapel, or the church of your choice, either with the casket present, or following cremation, with the cremated remains in an urn. Your funeral director can explain your options in this regard. Some families prefer to have a graveside service at the time of interment with their clergy present, or to have a family gathering at the cemetery.
