Cremation services

Not everyone knows that there are many cremation options. If you are interested in cremation, the funeral home team can explain the process and different options. From a direct cremation without a memorial service or a witness cremation to a full funeral service before or after the cremation and more, we help you understand this increasingly common choice—and handle all of the cremation arrangements.

"Julie and Casey were incredible. They were kind, comforting, understanding, and so supportive every step of the way. Laying my young nephew to rest was devastating for my family and the two ladies made the difficult experience bearable. They maintained regular contact with me, checked in often regarding my emotional well-being, and were accommodating when it came to our cultural/ family wishes. In addition, I did not feel like they just wanted my money, as they seemed genuinely caring throughout and after the funeral arrangement. My family is beyond appreciative of Julie, Casey, and Goodbody Mortuary/ Dignity Memorial."

"David is fantastic. Goodbody Mortuary is extremely professional and well run. Everything went off without a hitch. Every funeral has costs but David clearly stepped us through the process with no hidden fees, everything was explained with options for many little extras which helped the grieving. Having someone trust worthy to take care of your loved ones remains is most important, and Goodbody Mortuary can be trusted to do whatever is necessary to ease the pain and ensure your loved one is treated with dignity and respect."

"During the visiting service, a family member had dropped an envelope with $200 in it. A staff at the Mortuary found it and Julie Tran called me to ask if someone had loss their envelope and that she could come by and drop it off for us. That's going above and beyond her duties."
