Cremation Options

Cremation Options


There are many options available when the choice is cremation. A traditional viewing and funeral can be held prior to cremation.  Alternatively, a memorial service can be held at the convenience of family members.  Additionally, a private viewing can be held for family members to say goodbye prior to cremation.  Ask our staff for all the choices available when cremation is chosen.

After the funeral or memorial service, there are a variety of choices for your loved one's final disposition:

  • Interment means that you'll bury your loved one's cremated remains. This can be in a family plot, a memorial site, or in a variety of other indoor and outdoor locations. 
  • 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.
  • Scattering allows you to spread your loved one's cremated remains in a memorial garden, a cemetery, or across any other meaningful site. You also can 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 or memorial jewelry allows family members who are separated by distance to each feel the comfort of having their loved one close.
