Cremation Services

Cremation only refers to the manner in which you or your loved one has chosen to deal with the physical remains. Many people also believe that at the time of death only two basic choices exist: immediate cremation of the body or a complete funeral including viewing followed by burial.  Actually, several options are available for those who prefer cremation, perhaps even more than with casketed ground burial.


Cremation offers unlimited choices, increasing your options to celebrate your loved ones life. It is a process which is performed in a respectful and dignified manner and can be memorialized in many ways. The cremation services may be personalized specifically to reflect the life of the deceased, giving the service special meaning and uniqueness.

Cremation and burial are both defined as “modes of disposition”, methods of caring for the body and, as such, are just one part of a funeral. As times change, trends change too. Cremation options are only limited by your imagination. Today, the following cremation service opportunities exist for honoring your loved one: a full service cremation, memorial ceremony, scattering/burial ceremony or a direct cremation.
