Cremation is an alternative to the burial process and it is chosen by many people because of religious beliefs, the desire to preserve the environment or it was requested by the person who died. Cremation is also a less expensive option in comparison to a burial. The remains are placed in a container that is combustible and placed in a special furnace called a cremation chamber or a crematory where through intense heat is reduced to bone fragments that are then crushed and pulverized to resemble course sand.

Traditionally, a burial service involves a visitation, followed by a funeral service in a church, or other place of worship. You have the option of having the remains interred (earth burial), or it may be entombed in a crypt inside a mausoleum (above ground burial). Family or religious traditions are often a factor for choosing burial. Burial arrangement decisions also need to be made on whether the body needs to be embalmed, what kind of casket to use, and what cemetery to use. Learn more about our burial services.
