What types of cremation ceremonies are available?
Contrary to popular belief, cremation offers the widest variety of options for ceremony and memorialization. With a bit of pre-planning, you and your family members can decide on the ceremony and gathering that best meets your needs.
Simple Ceremonial Cremation (visitation prior to act of cremation)
This choice involves a full body visitation utilizing a ceremonial container/casket, followed by a religious or private gathering prior to the cremation process described above. After the cremation, the cremated body/ashes are ready for final memorialization, scattering or return to the family. Our Package plans offer a number of unique selections to choose in this category.
Simple Memorial Cremation (ceremony after the act of cremation)
Many who choose cremation do so to forgo the traditional aspects of a full body visitation but still want either a personal ceremonial gathering or religious tribute. Our facilities are perfect for any decision and our package plans offer a number of unique selections to choose in this category.
Non-Ceremonial Cremation (simple act of cremation)
We take care of bringing the deceased into our care, transportation and the act of cremation. Afterwards, we deliver the cremated body/ashes directly to the person or place you designate.
