Cremation Options

We are caring cremation experts who promise each family we serve the highest level of:

  • Courteous, professional service. Our dedicated staff will take care of all details, including prompt filing of required permits and notifications. Accurate completion of these essential documents not only ensures their acceptance by local or state agencies; it guarantees your loved one's cremation will not be delayed.
  • Respectful care of the deceased and timely completion of cremation process. Your loved one will be attended to by certified crematory operators; each of whom has been trained to provide both compassionate care for the deceased, and conscientious attention to detail throughout the cremation process.
  • Safekeeping and prompt return of cremated remains. We know it's important for the families we serve to know their loved one will be coming home as soon as possible. That's why we promise to notify you as soon as their ashes become available, and safeguard their urn until the time you are ready to receive them.
  • A memorial service to celebrate the life of the deceased. There are many advantages to taking some time to remember the life lived, share stories and laugh about all of the memories. Our team can help you plan a fitting memorial service with or without the cremation urn present, at our facility or in a place of your choosing.

You have many choices, for services before or after the cremation. The suggestions below are only some of your choices. Our Funeral and Cremation professionals will explain the options to you, so you can select what is best for your family and your situation.

  1. Traditional cremation services. These are much like a traditional funeral. The body of the deceased, placed in a specially-selected cremation casket or a rental casket, is the focal point of the service. A visitation can take place prior to the funeral service and the cycle is completed with the cremation rather than a traditional burial. Once the cremation has occurred, the cremated remains are returned to your family. You can then decide to scatter, bury, or retain the cremated remains in an urn.
  2. Memorial gathering after the cremation has taken place. This can occur at any time after the cremation process. The urn is usually on display at the service, which can take place in any setting preferred by the family.
  3. Cremation with Memorial Ceremony. This is a service conducted by an officiant (often religious, but it does not have to be), with music, scripture, poems, message, readings, or remembrances of the deceased. The urn bay be present if you wish. 
  4. Direct cremation or Simple Cremation. This involves completion of all required paperwork and the transportation of the deceased from the hospital, home, nursing facility, or coroner's office to the crematory. You may elect to plan your own memorial service at a church, park, home or gathering place. 
  5. Graveside or Columbarium Committal of the cremated remains is often held only with family members in attendance when the urn is buried or placed in the columbarium niche. 
  6. Scattering Ceremony. This if for the families who elect to scatter the cremated remains, family members often gather together for a land or sea/river/lake scattering of the cremated remains.

Choices for the Cremated Remains

  • Bury the urn in a cemetery

  • Place the urn in a niche in a columbarium

  • Keep the urn at home

  • Scatter the cremated remains in a favorite spot

  • Keep some cremated remains with you as a piece of jewelry

  • Place the cremated remains in a reef

  • Have the cremated remains launched into space

  • Scatter the cremated remains at sea

  • Keep a portion of the cremated remains in a keepsake urn

Obviously, some of these options are not for everyone and some even seem far-fetched. however, we're all different and unique. What seems inappropriate to us might just be the thing for another family.
