A funeral service is a special time for family and friends to comfort one another, begin to find healing and celebrate a life well lived. Whether you choose burial or cremation, you can hold a funeral service to honor your loved one. We are happy to provide a traditional funeral or something completely unique. Many cultures and religions have special funeral traditions and we will do our best to accommodate your requests. This is a moment for you and your family and we are honored to help you in any way that we can.
Just like a funeral service, a memorial service is a time to remember your loved one. This can be held shortly after death or weeks later, with or without an urn present. What’s important is that it creates a time and a place for family and friends to gather together and support one another, share memories and pay their respects. We can hold a memorial service at our funeral home, the final resting place or at your home.
A casket burial is a traditional service and there are many options you can choose from. We can provide an immediate burial without a public service; a visitation, viewing or wake with a closed or open casket; a funeral service at our funeral home, church or private home and a graveside service at a cemetery. You can choose whether you’d like a public or private service or a combination. It is entirely up to you how you wish to pay your respects.
Cremation is a process during which human remains are reduced to their original elements by the application of intense heat. The body must be enclosed in some type of container when delivered to the crematory, typically a casket or cremation container. The choice of cremation containers depend on your choice of funeral or memorial service, final disposition and memorialization. Your decisions should reflect your family's preferences, traditions, and religious beliefs.
Following the cremation process, the cremated remains are placed in a second container for final disposition. For this purpose, an urn is often provided or suggested.
Cremation is simply another form of final disposition, just like burial. The means of final disposition is a personal choice, and one that should meet your needs and wishes. Any options you select should meet your wishes, desires, and traditions. We hope that you will take all the time you need to consider the choices and options available to you, ask questions, and depend on us to assist you in any way possible. And with our own on-site crematory and a full range of selections for services, we can help you handle arrangements in one location. We had the first crematory in Cumberland County and we also serve Adams, Perry, and York Counties.
Because cremation is simply another form of disposition, you have the same (if not more) options available to you if you choose burial as the final form of disposition; options are available in both service type and merchandise, including:
* Traditional Funeral Service - A family who wishes to have a traditional funeral service (in church or chapel) and visitation with the body present may do so, and elect to have cremation follow the traditional funeral service.
* Graveside Services - Families may wish to hold traditional graveside services before the cremated remains are buried, entombed, or placed into a niche, mausoleum, or columbarium.
* Immediate Disposal with Memorial Service - Families who wish to have the body cremated immediately may still select a memorial service to be held at a later date. The cremated remains may be present at the memorial service.
* Night Service - Many families today are discovering that a service held at night with private interment the following day is increasing in popularity. This type of service allows people who may have some difficulty leaving work to attend.
* Private Service - A service held for members of the family and invited guests only. This is appropriate for the traditional funeral or memorial service.
* Customized Service - Your funeral service professional will assist you in arranging any service that meets your individual wishes and desires.
In addition to the options available to you in regards to services, there are other options following cremation. Cremated remains may be scattered, buried, or even divided to be stored in keepsake urns. The options are virtually limitless; we can help you arrange a service as well as make the choices that will help you celebrate and honor the life of your loved one.
