Cremation Services

Respect Those You Love in the Way You Choose

The staff of Nelson Funeral Home & Cremation Service, Gaylord, MI offers over 50 years of experience assisting our families in expressive and memorable cremation services. Our professional and compassionate staff recognizes that when a death occurs, it is our obligation to make sure you and your loved one are honored through the services we provide.

Each Service is Unique

Funeral service has changed over the years with cremation becoming the funeral service of choice. With this mind, we have many options to offer in which cremation is the final disposition. 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. 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 memorial service special meaning and uniqueness.

Memorial services vary from family to family which is why the Nelson Funeral Home & Cremation Service is always open to the ideas that a family has in how best honor their loved one. This can mean anything from a direct cremation, meaning no services, to a religious service with or without the body present, or perhaps just a time of gathering where friends and family can come together to reflect and share stories about the person you have all lost and loved.
