Convenient and Caring Cremation Services in Indianapolis, IN

If you are working through the loss of a loved one, it can feel overwhelming to choose the details for their final resting place. Each person deserves respect and love, and Woodlawn Cremations & Funeral Service is here to help. We offer cremation services in Indianapolis, IN, and the surrounding areas.

Our goal is to lighten your burden and simplify the process. So, we offer a service to pick up the body and take care of the cremation. These services are available in a 45-mile radius around both Indianapolis, IN and Louisville, KY.

More Than Basic Cremation Services

We know that the family is dealing with an emotional burden after losing someone, so we offer a variety of services to help you cope with the grief. Our pick up service simplifies the process so that you don't have to worry about logistics. We are also happy to cater the services to match your preferences.

Some people mistakenly assume that cremation means that there won't be visitation or a funeral service. But, we can assist with the memorial service or any other event that you feel would be best. By celebrating the life of your loved one, you can find the closure you need.

As you look at our cremation services page, you will see a few options available:

  • Scattering: The process of spreading the cremated remains as you see fit. Some people choose to spread the remains in a cemetery, over water, in a memorial garden, or any other location that was meaningful for the person. You can choose to scatter all of the remains, to retain a portion of them in an urn.
  • Multiple Urns: Many family members want to be involved in the process, and the placement of the urn can sometimes cause a dispute. If multiple family members would like to provide a final resting place for the person, then you could choose to have the cremated remains placed in multiple urns for distribution.
  • Graveside Services: Many traditional funerals are followed by graveside services. With a cremation, you might choose to celebrate the life of that person by holding a small ceremony before the cremated remains are buried in the ground. Meaningful tributes and prayers can be used to make this a special occasion.
  • Interment: This option is typically used only if the cremated remains will be entombed or buried. Common locations include a memorial site, the family plot, urn garden, or a cremation niche.

If you have questions about the services, then the best thing that you can do is talk to our team here at Woodlawn Cremations & Funeral Service. We will answer your questions and help you choose the services that best fit the needs of your family.

Why Choose Cremation in Indianapolis, IN?

Many people wonder why they should choose cremation instead of a traditional burial. There are a variety of reasons why, so you need to consider the preferences of your family and loved one. Some people choose cremation to simplify the funeral process. Other times, this option is best for people who want to minimize the costs as much as possible.

If you are worried about environmental concerns, then cremation might be a better solution compared to a traditional burial. Cremation affords flexibility in many ways for the final disposition and ceremony planning for the family. As you learn more about the benefits of this service, it is easy to see why it is increasing in popularity.

Location of the Crematory

Most funeral homes don't offer a crematory because it is a delicate procedure that requires special equipment. Instead of going to a local funeral home and then paying for the costs of the transportation and additional fees, you can simplify the process and reduce costs by working with the crematorium directly.

Here at Woodlawn Cremations & Funeral Service, we have a location dedicated for cremations. Our staff will pick up the body and bring it to our location. Then, you will receive the remains after the treatment is complete. We use a rigorous set of operating procedures and policies to treat each person with respect.

Keep in mind that most places in the United States have laws that make it illegal for people to perform independent cremation. So, if your loved one requested a cremation, then you will need to work with a licensed crematorium for assistance.
