This is a common requirement by cemeteries to protect the casket and ensure proper grounds maintenance. Today, a lot of families choose to safeguard their loved one’s remains by selecting a burial vault.
A memorial marker stands the test of time and serves as a physical reminder of a life celebrated and remembered. It provides a location for friends and family to visit and pay respects for years to come.
To accommodate the growing number of families who opt for cremation, our urn collection includes biodegradable urns for scattering as well as traditional urns made of marble, wood, bronze, or ceramic. Styles range from understated and classic to ornate and decorative.
Similar to a burial vault, if you plan to bury the urn, many cemeteries require a vault in order to protect the urn and the surrounding earth.
For those who choose cremation with a traditional funeral service, we offer cremation caskets built specifically for cremation.
We work with local florists to offer a beautiful selection of flowers for the funeral, visitation, memorial or graveside service. Flowers can be self standing or arranged specifically for a casket or urn. Select flowers for a current service.
