The First Decision: Burial or Cremation?

This is one of the major questions which must be addressed when a death occurs, and the answer usually depends on a variety of things.  For example, if your family has traditionally chosen burial in previous generations, you may again decide to choose earth burial, simply because your family own plots together in a local cemetery.

And sometimes, one or more of the family members may not like the idea of cremation and choose burial. Whatever your reasons, for more information on our burial services, click here.

Cremation, as you may well know, is the accelerated reduction of the remains to ash, traditionally through the process of heat and fire. If you’re considering cremation, we suggest you take the time to learn more here.

We encourage all families to consider whichever option suits them best at the time of need. Should you have any questions, feel free to call or email us. We will be pleased to share our knowledge and expertise with you.
