In simple terms, cremation is the process of reducing the body to bone fragments through the application of intense heat. Cremation has been practiced for thousands of years, yet only recently has become a common form of disposition in the United States.
Direct cremation is the least expensive method of final disposition. If budgetary constraints are a strong factor, this is certainly an option to consider.
It is important to keep in mind, however, that a funeral and memorial service help to bring a sense of closure to all who are affected by the loss. There is complete flexibility about what is done before or after cremation. Other pages on our web site deal with options that include cremation plus other services.
Costs associated with Direct Cremation include :

Today, cremation is becoming much more common as a method of final disposition. Most families also hold memorial services, an important step in helping the bereaved overcome their grief, and offering family and friends the opportunity to honor a loved one.
Contrary to what some people believe, cremation itself increases your choices. It should not be looked on as a break with family or religious traditions, but rather as one part in a series of events that leads to memorialization.
Memorial services can take place at the funeral home or place of worship. Gathering together for a service acknowledges the grief of relatives and friends by helping them feel included in the grieving process.
Memorial items can include prayer cards, acknowledgment cards, and a register book. Services can be done by funeral home staff, friends and family, or by clergy. This gives loved ones the opportunity to share stories, give eulogies and otherwise reaffirm the value the deceased person had in other's lives.
Once the memorial service has been arranged, plans should be made for establishing a permanent memorial to serve as a focal point
After the ceremony, the urn can be:
Cremated remains also may be scattered in cemetery gardens especially created and dedicated for this purpose. Individuals whose remains have been scattered in a garden can be identified by name on a special memorial plaque, marker or artwork, or in a Book of Remembrance in a building on the cemetery grounds.
The scattering of remains also may be done at a designated geographical spot on land or water in accordance with state/provincial or local laws. If scattering is done, it is highly advisable that a site also be chosen for a permanent memorial that will provide a place of reflection for those who want to remember and celebrate the life of the loved one.

Making end-of-life arrangements involves many choices and decisions. It is important to recognize that funerals are for the living... for those who suffer the trauma of losing a loved one. It is helpful to consider all the options and take the time to ask questions before making a final decision about such an important event.
Cremation and the Funeral
A funeral service followed by cremation need be no different than a funeral service followed by ground burial.
An arrangement that includes viewing is similar to a memorial service, with the addition of the body being present. If you choose an open-casket viewing, embalming, dressing, casketing, cosmetology, and hairdressing are additional services we offer. If cremation is to follow, a ceremonial casket can be chosen from a selection on premises. Cremation caskets are simple in design, built with less ornamentation and made from different materials.
It is important to remember that cremation does not limit the funeral in any way.
Whatever your choice, we are here to make the experience as emotionally satisfying for you as possible.
