Cremation has become a popular option for many people because it can be more flexible as to where and when you hold a service. You can have a traditional funeral service before a cremation or a memorial service at any time with or without the urn present. You can keep the urn, scatter the ashes or have the urn buried in a grave or columbarium where we can hold a service. Whether you choose burial or cremation, we’re here to offer you a meaningful ceremony. We are proud to offer direct cremation services starting at $1995.
SLUMBER ROOM VIEWING: We are proud to be the first and only funeral home in Southern Illinois to offer a slumber room setting, to be used for family viewings prior to cremation. One of the many reasons our funeral home is different....our experience allows us to embrace change and offer solutions not found in other funeral homes.
While we offer all the traditional funeral services and cremation options, we also see the need to offer more and change with our community's needs.
In today's times, whether it be limited access to nursing homes and hospitals, distances between family members, etc., we are honored to provide a dignified way to properly say goodbye prior to cremation in a setting more soothing for families to gather.

While we know this option will not be appeal to everyone, we hope you will trust our experience which leads us to believe this is a much needed alternative to viewing when cremation is the choice of disposition.
