Memorial Services

Graveside Ceremonies

A graveside service as a funeral service held at the graveside of a cemetery. A graveside service can follow a traditional service or can be a stand-alone event. It’s a type of service that can be held for either burial or interment of cremated remains.

Cremation Services

A cremation service is typically held at a funeral home or church. An urn with the remains may be present and interment may follow.

Veterans’ Funeral Services

Qualified veterans are honored by the VA at national cemeteries with military honors; rifle salute, playing of the taps and presentation of the flag.
