Burial Services

Burial Services

If burial has been selected, usually any ceremonies we design revolve around the casket being present. You can choose to follow tradition, with a viewing, and then a funeral service in a church or memorial chapel. Or you could decide to have a more relaxed service, even in your family home.

There is no ‘hard and fast’ formula for honoring your loved one when burial has been selected. We’re here to listen to your concerns, share our experience, and help bring your family together to celebrate your loved one.

Burial Options

Direct (Immediate) Burials

Immediate burial is earth interment without viewing or ceremony. This charge includes the basic services of the funeral director and staff, the transportation of remains, local transportation to the cemetery, and casketing.

Green Burial Options

This firm makes available a “green” burial option and is one of a select group of funeral providers approved by the Green Burial Council, a nonprofit organization that encourages the use of burial as a means of facilitating the restoration, acquisition, and stewardship of natural areas. For such arrangements, formaldehyde-based embalming is prohibited as is the use of metal or concrete grave-liners, burial vaults, or other permanent burial containers. Caskets, coffins, or alternative containers, used to enclose and transport the dead are made of bio-degradable materials and are available in a range of prices. Home wakes, public visitations, church funerals, and graveside services are options that may be arranged within the time frame green burials allow.
