Cremation Options

Planning a funeral service and cremation can be a very difficult process for families who have just lost a loved one. But it’s important to provide those who are grieving with a supportive environment in which they can begin to find closure, say goodbye, and come to terms with the loss. We offer a variety of cremation services to meet each individual’s unique needs, from a simple cremation to beautifully personalized funeral services.

Cremation Services

The biggest misconception about cremation is that there can't be a funeral service or visitation. This is absolutely not the case, and we encourage you to consider holding a funeral service to celebrate the life of the deceased as well.

There are many options open to you when it comes to honoring your loved one's life: you can provide a chance for friends and family to say goodbye through a final viewing in a casket specifically designed for cremation and you can also hold a formal service either before or after the cremation occurs.

After the cremation and funeral service, there are many choices for your loved one’s final disposition:

  • Interment means that you'll bury or entomb your loved one's cremated remains. This can be in a family plot, a memorial site, a cremation niche or urn garden, or in a variety of other indoor and outdoor locations. Ask our staff for a detailed list of local interment possibilities..
  • Graveside services are similar to those celebrated alongside a traditional ground burial, in which loved ones are present at the burial of the cremated remains and honor the deceased through memorial prayers or other meaningful tributes.
  • Scattering allows you to spread your loved one's cremated remains in a memorial garden, a cemetery, over water, or across any other meaningful site. You also can choose to scatter some of the cremated remains and retain the rest in an urn for interment or another form of disposition.
  • Placing cremated remains in multiple urns/keepsakes allows family members who are separated by distance to each other feel the comfort of having a portion of their loved one resting in a place near their location or to just keep them.
  • Note: Some religions frown on the separation of ashes. We suggest, if your faith plays an important part of your life, please consult with your clergy/minister for advise on this practice.



Payment Options

We offer multiple payment options to help lessen the financial burden on your family during this difficult time. Talk to a member of our staff for your options, or if you have any specific questions on this matter.. 

  • eChecks, or ACH payments, let you transfer funds directly from your bank account to pay for services. It’s fast, secure, and saves you money on credit card fees.
  • We accept payments online via all major credit cards — Visa, Mastercard, American Express, and Discover. Use our online payment platform to easily and securely pay by credit card today.
