If you are looking for a simple basic cremation with no viewing or wake, no service and no hassle you’ve come to the right place. It is becoming one of the most requested cremation options.
Cremation has become the most common form of final disposition of human remains in North America. The cremation process reduces the body to a powdery substance called “ashes” or “cremains”. After the cremation the ashes can be placed in an urn and can be buried in a cemetery plot or niche. Click here to shop for urns, keepsakes & jewelry. Some families choose to keep the urn with ashes in their home or plan a time to properly scatter them in a special place.
Direct cremation is chosen when there is no desire to have a viewing or gathering of family and friends. The deceased person is taken into our care and cremated almost immediately without any type of extended service. The ashes, or cremains, are usually kept by the next of kin or designated person, and placed into a personally selected permanent urn.
Due to the finality of cremation, the actual cremation process cannot occur until after all necessary authorizations from the next of kin or legal representative for the next of kin, medical examiner or county coroner have been obtained. Cremation can not occur within 24 hours from the time of death.
