Cremation can be performed with or without a funeral service. In this form of funeral, the deceased is cremated in a casket at a crematorium. We are the only funeal home in our area that owns the crematory. Your loved one never leaves our care. That is why we say the we are Your Safe Harbor for Healing. The remaining ashes are stored in an urn and then buried in a chosen cemetery, or released to the next of kin. The choices of burial sites range from an urn burial site, family grave site, mausoleum.
Note: Cremation is only possible with written consent to cremate by the next of kin or the deceased's appointed representative.
You can reach us day or night, even on Sundays and holidays:
