Is cremation a substitute for a funeral?
No, cremation is an alternative to earth burial or entombment for the body's final disposition and often follows a traditional funeral service.
Does your funeral home provide cremation services?
Yes. We offer all the services a cremation society offers, plus we have facilities to conduct public or private gatherings.
What is involved in the cremation process?
Cremation is a process that reduces human remains to their original elements by the application of intense heat. The body is enclosed in a container during the process, and following the process, cremated remains are placed in a second container for final disposition. An urn is often used for this purpose.
If I choose cremation, can I still have a funeral or a viewing?
Yes. Quite often some sort of viewing precedes the actual cremation. We can assist you with the necessary information for a funeral with a cremation following, or a memorial service.
