It is not common to have vast experience in planning funerals. We know that everyone coming into this task is inexperienced, and every question is considered valid. There is no one-size-fits-all when it comes to end-of-life services. Your input and the personality of the deceased are the most important factors when starting the planning process.  

Choosing Traditional Funeral or Cremation in Allenwood, PA 

You may be weighing the options between selecting a traditional burial or a cremation service for the deceased. Every family is different, and there is no wrong answer. Cremation can end up being a much lower cost, eliminating the burial plot and casket purchases. Weigh the options and think about what is right for your family.  

  • Funeral with Burial: You’ve seen it in movies, or maybe it is part of your family tradition. But a standard funeral service would include the body of the deceased present in a casket and the family invited beforehand for a viewing reception. This is followed by a program where family and close friends share the eulogy and memories of the loved one who passed away. This event can include favorite songs or poems that were beloved by the deceased. Shortly after, the casket is buried in a cemetery where people can come by and visit the grave for years to come.  
  • Cremation: The process of cremation is respectful and honorable. Our expert staff will handle the cremation of your loved one by following the guidelines very carefully and never losing track of the ashes. You can store the ashes in an urn or keepsake jewelry. Or you can scatter the ashes at a specified location that was meaningful to the deceased. When you choose cremation, you can also meet together with family and friends for a memorial to honor the deceased’s life.

No matter what you choose when it comes to funeral and cremation in Allenwood, PA, know that your services will be in good hands. Each funeral and cremation is performed by licensed funeral directors with significant experience in caring for the deceased.

This will save your loved ones from stress when the times comes. And they will be so grateful to have your input on your end-of-life services.  

You can go over the details of particular songs you would like performed, and who should perform them. You can write down scripture passages or poems that you would like recited.
