BURIAL OR CREMATION

The answer to this question will have a bearing when choosing the location for the funeral and the kind of service.  Usually the wishes of the deceased are known to family either spoken or in writing, for example a will or pre-arranged funeral plan.

Burial:   If there are written instructions from the deceased specifying Burial then a Cremation cannot take place.  Burial is still the traditional interment commonly used and there are a number of available local cemeteries.

Cremation:   Cremation is a respectful dignified process that is preferred by many of today’s families.  You may wish more detailed information about the cremation process, we can provide answers to all your questions.
