Direct Cremation

With a Direct Cremation, there are no formal ceremonies in a church or at a cemetery. If burial is selected, Alternatives will complete the interment with the selected cemetery; however the family is not present. If cremation is chosen, the cremated remains and death certificates are returned in person to the executor. If you wish, you can still select many of our other services such as visitations, obituaries, or extra death certificates. We can also create an Alternatives Event for you at a later date. If cremation is selected, we offer a wide array of urns and a unique variety of memorial keepsakes.
