Our team can outline the Advantage cremation care choices available and explain the process and the various memorial and burial options. From a simple cremation without a service or a witness, to a full funeral service before or after the cremation, you can select from affordable options to meet your needs.

Verified Customer Reviews

Since 2005, many of our customers have taken the time to tell us how we did each year via our Voice of the Customer program. Our star ratings and comments from families come directly from these surveys.

"We want to thank Amanda and her staff for helping us through this difficult time. These are tough times. My brother and I live across the country and we were unable to travel. Amanda was always available and made us feel like locals. My brothers remains were transferred out of state to join our parents. She guided through the experience and helped us fulfill his wishes."

"We had bought services for mom years prior only to find the crematorium had gone out of business the night mom passed. I found a letter in mom's paperwork that was sent to her about partnering with this funeral home. When I called they listened and did fast research and within a short time called me back to say they would honor the contract. The woman I spoke with (Emily) said she'd personally go and take care of mom. Amanda and her staff helped us get through the entire process. Thank you all for the compassion shown! This family was in panic mode and they went above and beyond to help us get through"
