The number of people choosing cremation has increased significantly in the past few years, yet cremation carries a long tradition that remains largely unchanged. Contrary to what some people believe, cremation does not limit choices. It is a process which is performed in a respectful and dignified manner and still allows for memorialization in many ways.

  • Immediate/Direct Cremation
    People who prefer not to have any ceremony, service, or gathering can choose a direct or immediate cremation. In this case, once the appropriate paperwork and authorizations are secured, the cremation is performed without any service. The cremated remains are then returned to the family members after the process is complete.

  • Cremation followed by a Memorial Service
    In this case, a memorial service is held after the cremation takes place, and oftentimes, the cremated remains are present. The memorial service can be tailored to each family’s wishes, and often includes pictures, music, memorabilia, awards, and poetry or scripture readings that reflect the personal taste of the deceased or of the family.

  • Funeral Service with Cremation following
    Even when cremation is chosen, families often plan a traditional visitation (viewing) and/or funeral service, and the cremation takes place following the service. In these cases, a ceremonial casket can be used or a special cremation designed casket can be purchased. The remains are then either buried or given to the family.
