You might have some questions as you begin the path towards pre-planning. We’re here to help answer them.


Here are some questions that often come up from others at the same stage:


Can I move a previously planned arrangement?

Of course. We have a wide range of personalization choices, including customized nameplates and military insignias, with options available to meet your specific needs. Contact us to find out more about how your loved one’s vault can be personalized to your wishes.


Do I need to purchase a burial vault?

In most areas of the country, state or local laws do not require that you buy a container to surround the casket in the grave.


Are there vaults for cremated remains?

Yes, we offer urn vaults, designed for in-ground burial of cremated remains. We have a wide selection available, so we are sure we can help you find a beautiful option that is a good fit for your taste and preferences.


Can the family witness the cremation?

Yes. Our crematory is set up to allow family members to be present when the body is placed into the cremation chamber. In fact, some religious groups include this as part of their funeral custom. As with anything, this is a personal choice on whether you want to witness this event.

We know that you may have other questions, so feel free to call us at anytime so that we can walk you your options and help you create the best possible plan for you.
