Cremation Services


Cremation is a growing choice for many families. Our contemporary service offerings provide families with the time and assistance to personalize the funeral service and honor their love done in a memorable way.


The reasons for preferring cremation are varied. For some, it seems a more natural process than burial. Others have environmental concerns. Still others are not sure why they feel more comfortable with cremation but are interested in learning more.

While your own personal preferences are extremely important, you may also want to discuss your choices with other family members to make sure they are comfortable with your decisions. Some individuals will be hesitant to accept anything that is different from traditional burial. Others may be negative to the idea simply because they are misinformed. This page is meant to answer the most often asked questions and bring about meaningful discussion and decision-making.
