Cremation Options

Cremation does not limit choices, but, in fact, increases one’s options. It is a process which is performed in a respectful and dignified manner and can be memorialized in many ways.
A funeral service followed by cremation may be exactly the same as a funeral service followed by ground burial.  Arrangements and ceremonies tend to be as individual as the persons for whom and by whom they are made.

The Complete Cremation Solution
This package will be just like a Complete Funeral Service except cremation will follow instead of the casketed burial. Viewing of the deceased is a very important step in acknowledging that the death has occurred having some type of service or ceremony is also a key ingredient to a healthy recovery of a loss due to a death. This can be accommodated by the use of a cremation casket (casket that is designed to be cremated) or the use of a rental casket. Following the viewing, service or ceremony, and eventual cremation, the cremated remains can be buried, properly scattered, or returned to the family for safe keeping. Urns are used to hold the cremated remains. Urns can be constructed out of basic materials like cardboard or plastic, or constructed out of more protective materials like basic and semi-precious metals, ceramics, and woods. Starting at

Direct Cremation Solution
A direct cremation solution refers to a cremation being provided, while limiting funeral services to the removal and transportation of the deceased into our care.

Memorialization Options for Cremation

Memorialization provides a permanent, secure place for cremated remains to be placed, and for family members and descendants to honor the lives of the deceased.

Cremation allows families many choices for memorializing a loved one. Some families choose to keep the cremated remains with them at home, or to scatter the remains over land or water. Church Funeral Services allows the following memorialization options, among others, for cremated remains:

SCATTERING – Your loved one’s remains may be scattered freely within a dedicated, natural environment. There are also certain services which offer scattering among the sea or the stars.

TRADITIONAL BURIAL – In ground burial on a family plot – Urns may be buried at the head or foot of a grave site.

PERSONALIZED MEMORIALIZATION – We also have custom, unique urns and keepsakes, perfect for displaying inside your home. For an overview of these items, please visit our Merchandise pages, or contact us directly and we will help you with your needs.
