Cremation Packages

Leading the Way by Embracing Change


Many families today are choosing cremation as their disposition of choice.  Although this option in the past used to be considered only a means of saving money, today people select cremation for  different reasons.  Families have shared with us that they prefer cremation because they feel it is simpler, cleaner,  they like the idea of not being in a casket in the ground or a crypt, and there are many ways to still make services meaningful.  At Edwards Funeral Service we have a vast array of cremation service options available to you including full service cremation packages.  Many families are also attracted to the wide variety of personalization options after the cremation has been performed.  Options that include thousands of urn styles, personalization of their urn, cremation jewelry, glass cremation remembrance artwork, keepsakes, candles and carbon constructed diamonds just to name a few.  Keep in mind we truly believe that cremation does not mean less service for your loved one, it just means you have an opportunity to have a personal service celebrating your loved ones life while creating a unique memorial after the cremation has been completed.
