Cremation, as well as burial and entombment, is the final
destination of the funeral. Most families choose viewing,
religious services, chapel services preceding the actual cremation
although direct cremation can be your option. Crestwood
Memorial Chapel provides cremation as an environmentally
responsible alternative to burial.
When You Select Cremation, You Still Have Choices.
The biggest misconceptions about cremation is that there can't be
any funeral, or because the final disposition is cremation, there
will be no visitation or service. Nothing could be further
from the truth. With cremation, families could choose the
comfort of a traditional funeral with the cremation taking place
Basic cremation may be right in certain circumstances, but others
may desire additional services. As specialists in cremation, we can
assist you and your family with any arrangement, such as memorial
services or traditional funerals with services in a house of worship
or any appropriate facility.
Memorial services before or after cremation are arranged with or
without the deceased present, the service may occur following the
cremation with the cremated remains present in an appropriate urn.
