Families choose cremation for a variety of personal reasons. Families choose Hillside Memorial Chapel for the peace of mind that comes with our unmatched trust, integrity and value. Families who choose cremation know that Hillside offers a wide range of good value alternatives. We will help you create the unique celebration of life that you desire— whatever your choice of services and ceremonies.
While each cremation is unique, there are three overall choices to make when planning a cremation:
- The Cremation Process itself, which this involves choosing the essentials to complete the actual cremation. This does not include any ceremony or memorialization.
- The Ceremony, which can be any event designed to reflect the life, ranging from a simple, small gathering of family to a formal church service.
- The Memorial— the choices for the final memorialization, whether to inter the remains within a cemetery or to choose another location for final disposition.
When you desire only a cremation with no ceremony or final disposition of the remains (direct cremation), Hillside Memorial Chapel can provide this service with the same dignity and care as our full-service options. We ensure the cremation is done with the same standard of excellence afforded to non-cremation handling. We can also assist with a variety of ceremony options and memorial options, such as a tradional service with cremation as final disposition.
Cremation is attractive to many families because it greatly increases the options for memorial ceremony scheduling and type of service. From a simple gathering at the graveside to a visitation and funeral with the body present, each family can craft a ceremony that truly reflects the life of the person honored. Hillside Memorial Chapel has options our families frequently select for memorial ceremonies.
