Designing the Right Plan for Cremation


As you are selecting the services with cremation, it is important to consider the desires and needs of your family. Here is a quick overview of the common cremation packages that are selected:


  • Direct Cremation: These direct services allow you to choose cremation without any other unnecessary funeral services. You aren’t required to hold a funeral with the cremation. If you are looking for the most affordable solution, then direct cremation might be the right answer.

  • Burial Services: Where would you like your loved one to be laid to rest? Many families find comfort in having a gravesite to visit after death. We can coordinate the services required for burial if desired. You can choose the cemetery and burial plot.

  • Cremation Services Including Cremations with Viewing: A viewing is a time when you can see your loved one for the last time. Many people find it comforting to find closure during the viewing. If desired, this viewing can be held in our funeral home before the cremation is scheduled.

  • Cremation Followed by a Memorial Service: Would you like to celebrate the person’s life after the cremation is finished? Talk to us about setting a time to hold funeral services. This event can be similar to a funeral, with the difference being that the body is not present in a casket. Or, design a celebratory event to honor the memories and experiences that were shared over the years.

  • Cremation Followed by a Graveside Service: Another option is to schedule a gathering at the graveside after the cremation. If you are going to bury the ashes in the family plot, then a graveside service can be a great time to meet with your loved ones.


The most important thing that you can do is design funeral and cremation services to match the desires and needs of your family. You need to honor the wishes of the deceased. At the same time, you also need to create an event that provides healing and grief support for the survivors. We are here to help with anything you desire for funeral and cremation services in Girard, PA.
