These days, cremations are being chosen as often as traditional funerals. What once was less than 25% of all funeral services is becoming more common. One reason could be the cost. Still personal preferences and family beliefs are just as relevant.
Cremations can and should include a funeral service or memorial celebration of life with them. When you choose to care for the physical remains through cremation, we encourage you to consider holding a memorial service as well.
There are many memorial and visitation options open to you when it comes to honoring your loved one’s life. You can provide a chance for friends and family to say goodbye through a final viewing before the cremation, you can also hold a formal service either before or after the cremation occurs.

After the cremation itself, there are a variety of choices for your loved one’s final resting place
- Interment means that you’ll bury or entomb your loved one’s cremated remains. This can be in the family plot, a memorial site, a cremation niche or urn garden, or in a variety of other indoor and outdoor locations. Ask our staff for a detailed list of interment possibilities.
- Graveside Services are similar to those celebrated alongside a traditional ground burial, in which loved ones are present at the burial of the cremated remains and honor the deceased through memorial prayers or other meaningful tributes.
- Scattering allows you to spread your loved one’s cremated remains in a memorial garden, a cemetery, over water, or across any other meaningful site. You can also choose to scatter some of the cremated remains and retain the rest in an urn for interment or another form of disposition.
- Placing cremated remains in multiple urns allows family members who are separated to each hold on to a piece of the loved one who has passed away.
We know every family is different and we strive to provide the personalized funeral services to help you say goodbye. We’re available to talk about these options any time. Call (269) 945-2471 or contact us.
