Today, families have many funeral service options available to them. As one of Warren‚’s most trusted and progressive funeral homes, we offer a wide range of services to accommodate the wishes and desires of every family. Those options include the traditional visitation and burial services, cremation alternatives or immediate burial.
It is our obligation to help you select the best option for your family.
A traditional burial service usually includes a period of visitation at which time family and friends gather in the presence of their loved one‚’s body. This time of gathering is intended to assist in the process of grieving by providing a strong support system, which allows for the healing process to begin. Following the viewing is usually followed by a service or celebration of life, held at the funeral home or a church, followed by ground burial or entombment in a mausoleum.
For those families who choose cremation, we offer several options. Families today are offered cremation services which are very traditional, e.g. viewing & visitation followed by funeral service or celebration of life, followed by cremation and either burial, scattering of cremated remains, inurnment or holding the cremains to be buried with surviving spouse. We also offer memorial services, which means that the body is not present for viewing, however the cremains may or may not be present for the funeral service. Memorial services can be held at the funeral home, church or a persons own personal requests may be honored. Another option is direct cremation. Direct cremation is simply cremation of the remains with no related funeral rites outside of a graveside or memorial service if desired. It is available for those families who desire a simple service at a basic cost.
This option is simply what it states. Burial will be made within a 24 hour period.
No embalming would be performed or required. Within an immediate burial, a graveside service or memorial service may be held to memorialize the life and death of the deceased.
