For many, cremation is the right choice to start end-of-life decisions. While cremation may be preferred, many people tend to end the planning process at this sole decision. In fact, cremation was never intended to limit the ability to honor cultural and religious traditions, personal beliefs, or selecting a final resting place.
Not all providers may offer you all the options available to you so it is important to ask questions in advance. Choosing cremation should not be mistaken that it limits a life celebration. Cremation can actually increase your choices. From choosing unique and personal funeral options to memorial services to learning about a final resting place, families can truly select elements that best reflect a loved one.
Cremation Services Offer Peace Of Mind
The simple and cost-effective, yet elegant process of cremation grants your family peace of mind. This frees them to focus on healing and leaving more resources to secure their loved one’s legacy.
Cremation Plans for Above-Ground or Traditional Burial
Cremated remains can be memorialized above-ground in urns, mausoleums or even scattered in meaningful locations. They can also be buried in a gravesite or interred in other memorial sites.
Cremation Burials Leave Unique Legacies
For those looking for more unique memorials, cremains can be crafted into jewelry-ready mini urns, placed in private gardens, benches, scatter at sea options, and glass niches. You even have the opportunity to separate remains amongst family and property.
For many years Green Hills has guided thousands of families through cremation planning with most opting for family visitations, funeral services and burial. We also assist with splitting cremated remains so families can have a final resting space yet still scatter their loved one somewhere special to them.
It’s equally important to understand where a loved one will be cremated so be sure to verify this in advance. Many providers use shared facilities that are often offsite. At Green Hills, all of our cremations are performed with the strictest quality control standards. Our mortuary and crematory facilities are located within the grounds of our beautiful memorial park which provides the family comfort knowing your loved one never leaves our care.
Our professional team specializes in planning cremation services in advance or at the time of loss. You can trust that every Green Hills representative is here to listen, understand your needs and guide you through the cremation process, with ideas, personalization and heartfelt care.
