Many people believe that choosing cremation means limiting your options. Actually, there are a variety of options available with cremation. Most families hold services, which help the bereaved cope with the loss of a loved one. These services can involve viewing and visitation  of the deceased, followed by a funeral service, after which cremation takes place. Other options include immediate cremation with a memorial service, or simply cremation with no service at all.

In addition to these value added packages, we are happy to work with you to design the most suitable service for yourself or a loved one.
