Graveside Funeral Service
A Traditional Cemetery Funeral Service Where Cremated Remains Are Returned To The Earth
This service is similar to a traditional ground burial, except that the cremated remains are inurned in a burial plot, typically in an urn and generally also an urn vault. Alternatively, these services may be held for those choosing to place an urn in a columbarium or above ground urn niche designed for cremated remains. Most people also select a custom grave marker or memorial plaque for remembering and recognizing their loved one with special inscriptions or sayings. No matter what you select, we can help you explore the option that is right for your family and situation.
A Final Graveside Ceremony Following a Funeral or Memorial Service
If you choose to hold a funeral or memorial service at the funeral home, place of worship, or another location, you can still say a final goodbye at the graveside. During these services, cremated remains are either buried in a burial plot or placed in a columbarium or cremation niche for above ground disposition. You may choose for these services to be as public or private as you wish. Committal services can take place long after the remains have been cremated if you need more time to grieve or make a decision regarding a final resting place. Some people find that the experience of a committal service can help them find closure with a death and take more significant steps toward their own healing.
