Cremation Services

Many families choose to have a Traditional Funeral using cremation as the form of disposition. This allows for visitation, service with body present in a church or funeral home followed by the cremation. Family and friends are given the opportunity to see their loved one for the last time and for all to say good-bye. 

Final disposition of the cremated remains may be burial in a cemetery. Some families choose to place the cremated remains in a decorative urn and keep them in the warmth and privacy of their own home. Others prefer to scatter the cremains on land, or at sea. It is permissible in all states to scatter cremated remains, but there are legal requirements and regulations to follow. 

We provide families who select cremation with the same variety of choices that accompany a traditional interment: memorial services, gatherings, visitations...all may still be arranged. When the cremation process is complete, you may choose to keep the cremated remains in a beautiful urn, or in keepsake lockets for members of the family. Or, you might request disposal at sea, or scattering in a place that has special meaning. We are happy to answer any questions about the beautiful commemorative choices that accompany the cremation process. 

The following are answers to some of the most commonly asked questions about cremation. Please be aware that laws and procedures will vary from state to state and from provider to provider.
