Burial Options

Burials can be immediate, graveside, or traditional

Whether choosing mausoleum entombment or earth interment, burial is special for many people. For generations, families have been choosing this form of tribute for themselves and their loved ones. We work with local cemeteries, as well as State and National Veterans Cemeteries, in order to ensure a proper burial for families choosing this option.

There are four fundamental segments to consider when desiring burial: choosing embalming, picking a casket, deciding on a cemetery, and planning a service that best represents the individual. As you can imagine, each of these segments have numerous choices and abundant combinations. Our directors are able to explain those options, answer your questions, and help you make the choices that best meet your needs.

Why You May Prefer a Burial

For generations, families have been choosing this form of tribute for themselves and their loved ones.


Burial services are the more traditional choice, if you or your loved one are more conventional, then this would likely be the choice for you. It is very common for people to consider burial the default method of saying goodbye, and honoring their loved one. For most people, when they think of a funeral they generally envision a casketed burial service followed up by cemetery service.


Another strong reason why people choose burial over cremation is due to the religious beliefs of their loved one. There are profound religious reasons families choose burial services over any other final care option. For example, the Christian concept of resurrection of the body is deeply held by many and makes burial an act of religious ceremony. Jewish families and those practicing Islamic traditions also have strong religious and social commitments to burial.


Some people get uncomfortable when thinking about cremation. There is a common misconception that the body is put to fire that makes them feel uneasy. Many do not feel like the body gets the respect it deserves through cremation. On the other hand, with burial the body is placed in a beautiful casket, the loved one can be dressed in their nicest attire, and family members can add in special mementos into the casket. These are common reasons why people choose burial over cremation.
