Top 5 Questions to Consider

When choosing your cremation provider, make sure you aren't sacrificing care by getting answers to these five important questions

  • What happens to my loved one once you receive them in your care?
    With us, they remain in our care – from the beginning to the end. Our staff is trained and certified to perform all cremations at our crematory. This isn't the case with most discount cremation providers who contract cremation services to third parties.
  • Will my loved one receive personal care?
    A low price doesn't mean a lower level of care with us. We treat everyone in our care with the honor and respect they deserve. Even with direct cremation, the families we serve are given time to view the body before cremation if they wish. This is often not the case with discount cremation providers. Most discount cremation companies deal in volume, where personalized care and special requests aren't an option.
  • Are there any additional or hidden fees?
    Not with us. Our simple pricing covers all costs. Plus, we can work out payment plans for pre-arranged services and we accept insurance policies as a form of payment. While most discount cremation providers state that their price is guaranteed, it's extremely important that you fully understand the contract and what's included with the cremation, the fine print of the contract, and the payment structure.
  • Can additional services be added on later, like a memorial service?
    While having a memorial service may be far from your mind right now, in the days or months after the cremation you may decide to have a service to honor your loved one. Find out upfront what the options are for everything from holding a service to purchasing an urn to securing a final resting place for your loved one's ashes. Because we provide complete care at our location, all of these options, and more, are available to you when you're ready.
  • Is someone available 24/7 to answer any questions that may come up?
    When a loved one dies, details can be forgotten or some details may never get asked. Please know our dedicated team of professionals are available 24 hours a day and seven days a week to answer any questions or concerns you have.
