A big misconception about a cremation is that there isn’t or can’t be a funeral service or visitation. When you choose cremation, we encourage you to hold a memorial service as well. You can provide an opportunity for friends and family to say their goodbyes by holding a final viewing before the cremation. You can also hold a formal service before after cremation. After cremation is finished, there are a variety of choices when it comes to your loved one’s final disposition:
Interment: You can bury or entomb your loved one’s cremated remains. This can be on a family plot, cremation niche or urn garden, a memorial site, or in a variety of other outdoor or indoor settings and locations. If you are unsure, please ask our staff about your options.
Graveside Services: Graveside services are akin to those celebrated at normal ground burial, in which your family is present at the burial of the cremated remains and honor your departed loved one through memorial, prayers and other meaningful tributes.
Scattering: Scattering allows you to spread your loved one’s remains in a cemetery, memorial garden, or at any meaningful location.
Placing cremated remains in multiple urns: This allows family members who are separated by distance to also have a final resting place in a nearby location.
