A Full Service Cremation is similar to a traditional funeral as there can be a public visitation as well as a funeral mass in church or at our funeral home. At the conclusion of the service the deceased is cremated instead of being earth buried or entombed. This can be accommodated by the use of a cremation casket (a casket that is designed to be cremated) or a rental casket may be used. Our rental casket is constructed of solid hardwood with a medium cherry finish. There is an insert, constructed of cardboard and particle board materials to contain the deceased. Many times the family chooses to inter the cremains in a family burial plot or crypt at a cemetery. The cremains may also be properly scattered, or returned to the family in an urn or keepsake jewelry.
Urns are used to hold the cremated remains. Urns can be constructed out of basic materials like cardboard or plastic, or constructed out of more protective materials like basic and semi-precious metals, ceramics, and woods.
