Traditional Service with Cremation

For many, a choice is made of a traditional funeral service with cremation as the final disposition, rather than ground burial. This option allows the family to blend both traditional and special wishes together to provide an even more personalized celebration of life. There may be a traditional visitation, and during the funeral, the casket is present at the service. The body may be cremated in a casket or special cremation container and arrangements for final placement of the cremated remains may be determined with a funeral director.

Cremation with Memorial Service

A service can be held with an urn present following a cremation. These types of services allow family and friends to gather at places of worship, cemeteries, homes, and other locations. If your family wishes to have either a private viewing or a formal visitation with the body present, we will assist you with those arrangements before the cremation takes place.

Your Funeral Director is well-versed in the laws and regulations regarding cremation and will assist you in making sure your decisions and the services you select are handled efficiently and effectively. Contact us at any of our locations in and around Charleston.
