About Cremation

Federal Trade Commission requires that all funeral, cemetery, and cremation companies provide an itemization of all services and merchandise. The General Price List is provided so you have the ability to pick and choose what you want, so please review that information at your convenience.

Service Options

Traditional Service Followed by Cremation

Your loved one is prepared in the same manner as for burial (embalming, hair dressing, makeup, clothing, etc.) and placed in a casket for a visitation and funeral service. We offer "cremation caskets" that are economically priced and designed to be cremated.

We also offer a "rental casket" option. The outer shell of the casket is reused, while a brand new inner liner temporarily holds the body for services, and then becomes the container in which the body is cremated.

After the service is complete, the body is cremated, and the cremated remains can be inurned (buried), scattered, or returned to the family.


Cremation with a Memorial Service

Better known as a “Celebration of Life” without the body present. Your loved one is cremated, the cremated remains are placed in an urn or special container, and a memorial service at our funeral home, or the church or location of your choosing, follows.

After the service is complete, the cremated remains can be inurned (buried), scattered, or returned to the family.


Cremation with a Veterans Service

Your loved one is cremated, the cremated remains are placed in an urn or special container, and a memorial service (Celebration of Life) at our funeral home, church, or location of your choosing.

After the service is complete, special military honors, rites, or ceremonies occur at the chosen cemetery.


Cremation with a Graveside Service

Your loved one is cremated, the cremated remains are placed in an urn or special container, and a Graveside Service occurs at the place of burial.


Direct Cremation

Your loved one is cremated with no funeral service or viewing after they pass. The body is not prepared in any way, and an alternative container is used instead of a casket. The body is immediately cremated, and the cremated remains can be inurned (buried), scattered, or returned to the family.

While Direct Cremation might seem like an easier and less expensive alternative to a Cremation with a Celebration of Life, grief experts believe that having some type of ceremony to honor the deceased better helps loved ones through the healing process. However, please know that if Direct Cremation is what you desire, our funeral directors will always honor your wishes.

Cremation FAQs

We’ve provided a list of answers to questions we frequently receive regarding our services and other activities related to funerals. If you don't see the answer to your question here, feel free to contact us. We'd be happy to give you more information and clarify any of your concerns.

Can I still have viewing with cremation?

Definitely! In fact, we encourage you to do so. Choosing cremation only indicates how you’d like to care for your loved one after the service and doesn’t exclude you from celebrating and honoring their life in any way. Whether you’d like to have a visitation beforehand, arrange a funeral service before cremation, or wait and hold the service after the cremation, we’re happy to help you design a meaningful service to accompany the cremation.

How long does the cremation process take?

It depends, but generally it takes anywhere from 3 to 5 hours.

How can I be sure the ashes I receive are my loved one?

You can be present for the cremation. Cremation is a regulated process with strict procedures that we follow to ensure we’re holding our services to the highest standard possible. In addition to following these standard procedures, we also keep a metal disk with a unique ID number with your loved one throughout the process, including during cremation.

Are there restrictions on scattering ashes?

That depends. If it is your private property, there are no restrictions. If it is someone else’s private property, you must have their consent, and it’s a good idea to get it in writing. If it’s public land such as a park, contact your local government or the agency in charge of that space to see what their policies are. In general, if you’re not sure, just scatter them in a respectful way in a place where you are sure they won’t be disruptive to others.

What is a columbarium?

A columbarium is a place for the interment of urns containing cremated remains. They’re often located in mausoleums, chapels, or memorial gardens, and contain numerous small compartments, or niches, designed to hold urns.
