Frequently Asked Questions
What is direct cremation? +

A direct cremation is a low cost, no strings attached specialty of cremation. Direct cremation simply means we cremate and nothing else. While we offer urns and jewelry to keep your loved ones close, we don't hassle you into costs for a service, or anything else you don't want. Many of our customers take their loved ones' remains and bring them back to their home towns, fly them on planes, or have ceremonies in different states. Direct cremation gives you the freedom to choose what you want, how you want it.

What do I do after a loved one passes? +
