Online Cremation Arrangements
We offer a discounted online direct cremation package. We are a full service family owned funeral home, and while our online rates are discounted, the services are done the traditional way cremations have been handled by our funeral home for years.
When someone passes away, we will make a dedicated trip to the place of death and bring them to our funeral home. Once the paperwork, authorizations and legal requirements are completed we will transport them to the crematory for cremation. Dedicated individual transportation is provided for each person at every step of the way. They will never be transferred or carpooled with other folks that have passed away.
Our online direct cremations start at $2,200.00 and packages increase from there, this is a discount from our General Price List. We recommend our online services for simple cremation services.
For more complicated funerals, like those involving a Mass, religious services, or burial of cremated remains, please call us to make an appointment with a licensed funeral director to go over all the details.
