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.
