Cremation Services

John G. Crawford - Funeral Director
Providing professional, caring and personalized services.

Many people believe that choosing cremation means limiting your options. Actually, there are a variety of options available with cremation. Most families hold services, which help the bereaved cope with the loss of a loved one. Many people find that opting for cremation gives them the opportunity to create and personalize the various service options for a more meaningful experience. We are readily available to travel and meet a family at their residence for arrangements, should that be more convenient than meeting at the funeral chapel.

If you decide to have your loved one cremated or if it was the request of the individual, viewing is still an option when choosing this service. Often, families choose to have visitation with or without a service prior to being cremated. Depending on the circumstance, embalming may be necessary when selecting this service.


A Memorial Service is a service without a visitation and the remains of your loved one are not present at the time of the service. It is a time for family and friends to commemorate their loved one with comfort of each other. Our staff will provide our professional service, use of the funeral home if requested, funeral professionals present at the place of service and all transportation needed for your family.


A graveside service is celebrated after your loved one is cremated. Family and friends gather at the grave site where a brief ceremony is held to honor the memory of the deceased.
