High-Quality Cremation Services in Columbus, IN

It can be devastating to deal with the loss of a loved one, and many families find it difficult to plan the services and final resting place. How do you know the best choices to match the preferences of your family member? Sometimes, a previous conversation with the person provided insight into their desires. Other times, family members are left on their own to figure out the best solution for a memorial service and burial.

While traditional burials have been used for as long as we can remember, cremation is becoming a popular option that many people are using today. If you live in Columbus, IN or any of the surrounding areas, then you might consider the benefits of cremation services instead of a traditional funeral and burial.

Funeral Home or Crematorium?

Most people aren't familiar with the funeral home or crematorium options in Columbus, IN or the surrounding areas.

If you are burdened by the emotional loss of a loved one, then you might have a hard time understanding the difference services that are offered.

There are funeral homes available near Columbus, but most funeral homes don't have a crematorium.

Fully-Customized Cremation Services

Cremation is a simple solution, but there are a few services that can be used to customize your experience. These services are carefully designed to minimize your burden while we handle the logistics for your family. Some families choose cremation without a memorial service. But, you can incorporate a graveside service or a small memorial if you prefer.

You can celebrate the life of your loved one and respect their final wishes at the same time. Look at our cremation services page to learn more about the options that we offer:

  • Interment: It is common to have an interment if the remains will be buried or entombed after the cremation. You can choose common locations including an urn garden, memorial site, or the family plot.
  • Graveside Services: Do you want to have a cremation followed by a ground burial? The urn requires a smaller plot, helping to save money. You can hold a service that includes prayers or meaningful tributes to celebrate the life of the person before they are buried in the ground.
  • Multiple Urns: Sometimes family members have a hard time agreeing on a final resting place. If family members live in distant locations, then it can be difficult for them to visit a grave on a regular basis. One solution is to use multiple urns so that each person can have their loved one nearby.
  • Scattering: The remains can be spread in any location that you select or as requested by the deceased. Some families have a memorial garden for the scattering. Other options include a cemetery, over water, or any other location that had special meaning for the person. All of the remains can be scattered, or you can choose to keep a portion of them in an urn.

There isn't a right or wrong answer when it is time to choose a final resting place for someone that you love. This opportunity allows your family to customize the service based on traditions and desires of everyone involved.
