When you want to honor your loved one with a Funeral Service but can’t afford a burial. There is a solution that can be up to 50% less than a Traditional Full Burial.
Complete Funeral Service Followed by Cremation starting at $4995 in Southern Illinois
Choosing cremation does not have to limit your choices with respect to services prior to cremation rites. Burial adds many additional charges including a casket, vault, cemetery lot, and other cemetery expenses. You may have heard that choosing cremation means you cannot have a traditional funeral service and know this is NOT true. We have encountered so many people that were not educated on their cremation options. And this option is often not presented to families.
Your family still has the ability to add thoughtful, personal touches and memorial observances to honor and remember the loved one that has passed. The major difference between a traditional funeral service and a complete funeral service followed by cremation is instead of burial in a cemetery after the service, the body would be taken to the crematory. Once the body is cremated, the cremated body may be buried in a cemetery, entombed in a mausoleum or columbarium, or returned to your family.
It is not required that families purchase a casket for cremation. In this case, we offer a rental casket, which is used for the visitation and funeral service.
