With cremation simply being an alternative to burial or entombment, we believe you should be able to choose the type of service that you find most meaningful and not feel limited. That is why our list of services includes many options.

When you choose cremation, a funeral service is appropriate and recommended. Survivors still need the time and setting to grieve. We offer many types of services specifically for cremations: a traditional service with a visitation and funeral service prior to the cremation, a memorial service with the cremated remains present, a memorial service with no cremated remains but a thoughtful selection of photographs and personal memorabilia or a service at the graveside where the cremated remains are to be interred.

Once cremated, a loved one's cremated remains may be placed in an urn and taken to a final resting place such as a family plot, urn garden, columbarium or a family member's home.  Others choose to scatter in a special cemetery garden or over land or water (where permitted by law). In this case, a portion of the cremated remains is usually kept in a keepsake urn as a remembrance.

Sometimes cremated remains are divided into several urns. This option works well when family members are living in different parts of the country or world.
