Cremation

Cremation is an alternative to burial and can take place before or after services are held.

  • Traditional Service – A ceremony or gathering where the body is present, giving family and friends the opportunity for viewing. Cremation follows the service.
  • Memorial Service – A ceremony or gathering where the body is not present, cremation takes place before the service. Visitation hours can be arranged to meet family needs prior to the service.
  • Direct Cremation – Cremation takes place without any ceremony or gathering. Viewing is also available with this service.

 

With cremation, you have the option to bury the cremated remains, place them in a niche, keep them at home, or scatter them. Keepsake urns and jewelry are available for those family members wishing to keep a portion of the ashes.
