Burial Services

Traditionally, a burial service involves a visitation, followed by a funeral service in a church, or other place of worship.  The casket is typically present at both these events.  You have the option of having the remains interred (earth burial), or it may be entombed in a crypt inside a mausoleum (above ground burial).  

Reasons For Choosing Burial

  • Burial is traditional within your family, religious group, or geographical area.
  • You do not like the idea of the body being cremated
  • You want to erect a monument on the grave
  • You feel that having a physical location to go to will help with healing

  • Whether the body is to be embalmed
  • Which kind of casket will house the body
  • Whether the cemetery requires a vault 
  • Which cemetery to use
  • What kind of burial plot
  • What to inscribe on the headstone
