Our Cremation Services for Rochester

candle lantern child Rochester cremationWe offer families from Rochester and the surrounding areas some of the best cremation services while keeping them at a reasonable price. Losing a loved one is tough enough; you should not have to stress about trying to pay for cremation costs.

Below we give you a general oversight of some of the popular choices people choose with cremation.

 

Direct Cremation

This is the simplest cremation service we offer because it does not involve any ceremony. It basically just involves completion of all the required paperwork and transportation of the deceased from the place of death to the crematory. 

A Memorial Service after Cremation

The cremation takes place then at any time after your family can hold a memorial service. Often times the memorial service can take place weeks to even months after the cremation. This allows the family time to think about how exactly they would like the memorial service. The urn can act as the focal point of the service.

A Traditional Funeral with Cremation

This is much like our traditional funeral service that we offer. A traditional funeral occurs where the deceased is placed into a specially-selected cremation casket or in a rental casket. Also you have the option to hold a visitation before the funeral service. Once the funeral service has concluded the deceased is cremated as opposed to being buried. The cremated remains are then returned to you, at which point you can scatter, bury, or keep the remains in an urn. 

The above listing cremation services provides just a quick overview of some of the options available to you. We are flexible and allow for some customization. Contact us and we will work with you to find something that meets your specific needs and wants. For a full break down of costs take a look at our General Price List
