What is Cremation?

Cremation is a respectful and time-honored process involving placing the deceased's body in a cremation container and carefully incinerating it, transforming it into ashes.


Families receive these ashes, allowing them to make heartfelt decisions about the final resting place of their loved ones. Typically, the ashes are kept in a beautifully crafted urn.


Why Choose Cremation?

There are numerous reasons why families are increasingly choosing cremation services. Some opt for cremation due to their religious or personal beliefs, while others prioritize the environmental benefits it offers.


Additionally, cremation services often come at a more affordable cost compared to traditional burials. However, the decision should be guided by what feels right to you and your loved ones, as honoring their memory is vital.


Can You Prepay for Cremation Services?

Yes, you have the option to prepay for cremation services. Preplanning and prepaying for cremation services can offer peace of mind and alleviate future financial burdens for your loved ones. By prepaying and preplanning, you can lock in current prices and ensure that your wishes are fulfilled according to your preferences.

Types of Cremation Services

We highly recommend incorporating a visitation and funeral service into the cremation process. Every life deserves to be remembered, and these services provide an invaluable opportunity for family and friends to honor the departed's life and embark on their grief journey. There are various types of cremation services you can choose from, including:


Service with Visitation: This option allows for visitation before the cremation occurs. The deceased's body is prepared for viewing, allowing guests to pay their respects and participate in a funeral service, followed by the cremation.

Direct Cremation: With this choice, the deceased's body is cremated immediately after death without prior viewing. It offers a streamlined approach for families who prefer a more intimate farewell.

Cremation with Service: The deceased is cremated promptly, and a funeral service is held afterward, allowing loved ones to gather, share memories, and find solace together.

Cremation with Graveside Service: A funeral service occurs at the gravesite following the cremation, ensuring a meaningful and final farewell for your loved one.

Cremation with Celebration of Life Service: Like the other options, the deceased is cremated promptly. A celebration of life service is held, typically after the funeral, offering a personalized and unique tribute that reflects the individual's personality and passions. These services can be arranged outside the funeral home to create a more memorable experience. Visit our page related to cremation options to learn more about these alternatives.

When a cremation center has an on-site crematorium, it provides families transparency and peace of mind. You can have confidence in knowing that your loved one's cremation will be conducted at the location where you entrusted their care. This eliminates any concerns about transportation or third-party involvement, ensuring a seamless and secure process.
