  1. Funeral or Cremation? When you decide which option is best for your family and loved one, consult our expert team. Cremation is being chosen more and more often. It is the option that will save the most money. You will also not be tied to a cemetery that you will have to live near to visit the deceased.
  2. Pricing? You should always expect a funeral team to be completely transparent with their prices and funeral plans. Our experienced team will show you every option we have laid out and will never have hidden costs that come up as a surprise later in the process.
  3. Venue? We offer a venue here on-site, but you can have the funeral at a church or outdoor gathering. We can take care of the transport of the body and accommodate the needs of the deceased's family.
  4. Products to Buy? When you choose traditional burial, you will need to select a casket for the person to be laid to rest. We have many options available, with a wide price range from which to choose. If cremation is right for you, then you can select an urn to keep the ashes, or memorial jewelry that can hold part of the ashes.
  5. Program Layout? What do you include in a funeral or memorial service? Is there music? Do people share a poem or a comical anecdote? The sky is your limit! Many people sing hymns and share nostalgic stories or memories about the person that were impactful to them. If you want to have a more lively celebration with an open mic program where everyone is invited to come up and share, then so be it. There is no one way to put on a funeral service.

Funeral & Cremation

How much is cremation?

The total cost is $1,100 for a direct cremation. There are smaller cities, on the other hand, which offer direct cremations for less than five hundred dollars. With this broad cost range, before making a decision, it is important to do your research and get a few quotes. Learn More.


What happens when you are cremated?

The body is prepared and put in a suitable receptacle. The container with the corpse is moved to the cremation chamber or "retort". The residual metal is removed after cremation, and the ashes are moulded. The "ashes" are moved to either a temporary container or to a family supplied urn. Learn More.


Do veterans get free funeral?

The veteran is entitled to a grave, a headstone or plaque and a burial flag in a national cemetery. To cover some of the funeral director's costs, the casket, and lodging, these veterans also receive a burial payment of up to $2,000. Learn More.
