When planning a funeral, one of the many decisions you will make is where your loved one’s final resting place will be. Depending on whether you choose a cemetery, your home, your garden or some other location, you will need to choose an appropriate protective container. Your funeral director will match your specific needs to all available options, which may include caskets, vaults, or cremation urns and keepsakes.
Caskets are made in a wide variety of styles and materials. They can be made from inexpensive materials, such as wood composites and veneers, or they can be more costly when made from the finest materials such as bronze or mahogany. Stainless steel and steel caskets are also popular options.
Most cemeteries require that caskets be placed in an outer burial receptacle capable of withstanding the weight and pressures of the earth. We will provide samples of vaults and other outer burial containers to select from.
Options for Cremation include: Hardwood Caskets, for those desiring something more traditional; Cremation Caskets and Rental Caskets for those wanting a simple yet dignified casket constructed specifically for cremation; and Basic Cremation Containers.
Memorial Urns are permanent containers for the cremated body. We offer a wide range of styles and prices appropriate for burial, niches, scattering, keepsakes or discreet placement in a home. Your personal plans for the final placement of the urn can play an important part in your selection process. Some urns are ornately designed for display purposes while others are very basic in style. Many of the urns can also be personalized with engravings or laser designs.
Urn Vaults are protective containers in which urns are commonly placed. In many cases, where families desire to bury the urn-encapsulated remains of their loved one, cemeteries will require the use of an urn vault. Much like burial vaults for caskets, urn vaults protect the urn and maintain the integrity of the gravesite.
Our staff can assist with floral tributes from family and friends. Our local florists offer a wide variety of selections are available that can be displayed at the service, ceremony or visitation.
