Traditional Funeral Packages with Cremation

The term "Traditional Funeral Service", when referring to a cremation, mean those services in which the body will be present, just as though there was to be a casket burial. There are many different variations; the deceased may be present in a ceremonial casket for a visitation and a funeral service, followed by the cremation. If the urn is to be buried a graveside service may be scheduled at a later date.

If you choose cremation, we strongly recommend that you hold a memorial service to help you and your loved ones in the healing process.

The fees include professional services, attention to all details including filing of forms with government offices, preparation of newspaper notices if desired and handling of floral tributes if any.

The service packages listed below reflect what most of our client families select. The fees for most of the items included have been discounted below what is listed in our General Price List.

Other memorial remembrance items may or may not be included depending on the service plan selected. Such items may include a DVD Memorial Tribute, prayer cards, a register book, personalized bookmarks, candles, jewelry, or a crucifix.
