Whether you want to arrange a traditional funeral service or modern celebration of life, large gathering or more intimate service, we will work with you one-on-one to ensure your needs and budget are met. From casket selection, to floral arrangements to music selections, decor, mementos and more, we guide you through your choices with care.

Cremation in Mount Morris

Signature Dedication at Volusia Memorial Funeral Home & ParkWe specialize in cremation services that honor loved ones in personalized ways, and families love our transparent pricing. With expertise in scattering ashes and a friendly team who pays attention to every detail, we provide service that is second to none.

More and more people are choosing cremation over traditional burial, but most aren’t familiar with all the choices:

  • a cremation without a funeral or memorial service of any kind.
  • a funeral with your loved one present, followed by cremation.
  • a cremation followed by a scattering, cemetery memorialization or celebration of life—or all three.

There are many cremation providers from which to choose. Here's what you can expect when you choose us for your loved one's cremation:

  • Custody of care guaranteed. Our custody-of-care program helps safeguard the identification of your loved one from the time we bring them into our care until the time we return them to your family. We check, cross-check and check again, every step of the way.
  • Exclusive custody of your loved one. We use only crematories owned and operated by Dignity Memorial® providers or trusted partners. Once your loved one is in our custody or that of a trusted partner, they’re in our care until they’re returned to your family.
  • Licensed, certified, conscientious staff. All Dignity Memorial crematory operators in Ontario are licensed and certified by the Cremation Association of North America, or CANA. Only one person at a time is cremated, and the cremation chamber is thoroughly cleaned before the next person is cremated.

We can also arrange for your family to attend your loved one's cremation, if that's your wish.

Veterans funerals

We deeply appreciate those who have sacrificed for our freedoms and feel privileged to honor veterans and their families in need of funeral and cremation services. We also offer special pricing on veterans services. Your funeral director can tell you everything you need to know.

Grief support and aftercare

The loss of a loved one can be devastating, and many people don't know where to turn or how to cope. We're here to help you during difficult times—you aren't alone. Though the experience of grief can be very isolating, the articles in our grief library can make a difference in your day-to-day life, and families who plan services with us get access to our 24-hour Compassion Helpline (services provided by Charles Nechtem Associates).

Funeral planning in advance

In addition to assisting with an immediate need, Milliken and Throckmorton Funeral Home specializes in working with families to make final arrangements in advance. When you plan ahead, you relieve your family from financial and emotional burdens while ensuring your wishes are fulfilled. We offer in-person and virtual consultations, as well as a free Personal Planning Guide.

History

Milliken and Throckmorton Funeral Home was founded as Church Funeral Home by George Church in 1940. It first opened on South Washington Street in Waynesburg. In 1947, the firm moved to its present location on North Maiden Street.

When George died in 1959, ownership passed to his wife. Glise Mariner was her partner and supervisor of the funeral home. In November 1960, Glise partnered with Samuel Milliken to buy the business from Mrs. Church. They changed the name to Glise E. Mariner and Samuel A. Milliken Funeral Home.

Glise and Samuel grew the business, eventually expanding the building to more than 5,000 square feet and adding a 36-car parking lot.

In 1987, Samuel partnered with Daryl Throckmorton, who'd been working for the firm for 12 years, to open Milliken and Throckmorton Funeral Home. Less than a decade later, on January 1, 1996, Daryl became the sole owner of the location. In order to serve more families, he also opened a branch of the business Mount Morris.

In 2023, both locations became part of the Dignity Memorial network of funeral, cremation and cemetery providers. We continue to provide the highest level of service with attention to detail, plus benefits you won't find anywhere else.
