Cremation Options

Customized Cremation Options Offer Flexibility

If cremation is your choice or the choice of your loved one, you have many service options when you use our funeral home. Our caring professionals will respectfully work with you to plan cremation services and memorialization that fulfill your wishes and honor your life or the life of your loved one.

When you choose cremation, it’s important to remember to plan for the permanent placement of cremated remains as well. Cremation memorialization at your local cemetery is important for many reasons:

  • A permanent site gives loved ones a physical place for visitation and reflection.
  • The ceremony accompanying the placement of an urn in a cremation niche or a cremation garden in a cemetery provides family and friends with closure after the loss of a loved one.
  • When ashes of a loved one are kept with relatives, they can easily become misplaced or discarded through the years, as future generations may not feel a connection to the deceased.
  • A permanent placement provides future generations with a location to visit when researching heritage.

You can select items individually or, to make the selection process even easier, Dignity Memorial providers offer a choice of four Dignity Memorial cremation offerings. Dignity Memorial offerings are designed to simplify your choices and help you create a meaningful and personal tribute for your loved one. Our offerings group together valuable services and merchandise while also taking into account your personal wishes. 

 

Each offering includes:

  • Service of our professional staff
  • Care and preparation of the deceased
  • Crematory fee
  • Necessary service vehicle(s)
