Cremation Services

For many people the idea of being buried isn't appealing. Cremation is a popular alternative that has many benefits. Cremation doesn't mean you can't still have a service - in fact many people have a viewing and you even have a choice as to whether to have it before the cremation with a casket viewing, or with a picture and urn after the cremation.

When you have the viewing beforehand that's referred to as a "casket service" but you also have the "memorial service" when it's held after the cremation. This gives a variety of options, and our compassionate and caring professionals are here to walk you through all of your choices.
