Cremation Services

With cremation services, we at Routsong believe you should be able to choose the type of service that you find most meaningful. That's why our list of services includes many options. Once cremated, a loved one's ashes may be placed in an urn and taken to a final resting place such as a family plot, urn garden, columbarium or a family member's home.

Sometimes cremated remains are divided into several urns. This option works well when loved ones are spread out across the country. Others choose to have their ashes scattered in a special cemetery garden or over land or water (where permitted by law). In this case, a portion of the cremated remains is usually kept in a keepsake urn as a remembrance.

If you choose cremation, a funeral service is appropriate, and recommended. Survivors still need the time and setting to grieve. We offer many types of services specifically for cremations, from direct cremation with no casket present, to traditional cremation with a visitation, procession and memorial service.

Cremation Services

The biggest misconception about cremation is that there can't be a funeral service or visitation. This is absolutely not the case, and we encourage you to consider holding a memorial service to celebrate the life of the deceased as well. There are many options open to you when it comes to honoring your loved one's life. After the cremation and memorial services, there are a variety of choices for your loved one's final disposition:

  • Interment means that you'll bury or entomb your loved one's cremated remains. This can be in a family plot, a memorial site, a cremation niche or urn garden, or in a variety of other indoor and outdoor locations. Ask our staff for a detailed list of interment possibilities.
  • Graveside services are similar to those celebrated alongside a traditional ground burial, in which loved ones are present at the burial of the cremated remains and honor the deceased through memorial prayers or other meaningful tributes.
  • Scattering allows you to spread your loved one's cremated remains in a memorial garden, a cemetery, over water, or across any other meaningful site. You also can choose to scatter some of the cremated remains and retain the rest in an urn for interment or another form of disposition.
  • Placing cremated remains in multiple urns allows family members who are separated by distance to each feel the comfort of having their loved one's final resting place in a nearby location.


Cremation with Traditional Service

Incorporates the benefits of both a traditional funeral service and cremation, including embalming and a casket rental. Cremation is performed following the funeral services.



Direct Cremation

With direct cremation, there are no ceremonial services involved. The body is cremated shortly after passing, without embalming, viewing or visitation.
