Cost of Cremation

While most funeral homes do offer cremation services, we own and operate an on-site crematorium, enabling us to take full responsibility for the entire process. And we’ve been doing it for years. As with any major spending decision, it’s always wise to weigh one’s options. Such is also true when selecting a funeral or cremation provider to make a valid “apples to apples” comparison.
