Things You Need to Know About Cremations
Certificate of Cremation (Sample)
Charlie Marshall Crematory offers five (5) different types of cremation services.
- DIRECT CREMATION
This cremation service is for families who want immediate cremation with
no viewing or perhaps they choose to have a memorial service at their
church or home without the body present and only want to contract for the
cremation itself. It includes removal from the facility or home,
arrangements, counseling, securing doctor’s signatures on death
certificates, securing signatures on cremation permits, authorization and
transit permits, bookkeeping and accounting and general clerical
administration, vehicle, cremation fee and the cost of insurance and
- CREMATION WITH MEMORIAL SERVICES
This cremation service is the one most people associate with cremation.
This is where the cremation takes place and then there is a service in our
Chapel or your Church with or with out the cremains being present. This
service includes all of #1 plus our Chapel for services, the Register Book,
Thank you Cards and choice of Music. We incorporate personal touches to
our services such as photographs, tackle boxes and fishing poles for the
fishing enthusiast, saddle, rope and spurs for the rancher and other personal
items that reflect the person whose life is being celebrated.
- CREMATION WITH PRIVATE VIEWING
This cremation service is for families who choose cremation but the
immediate family members would like to view the body before cremation
occurs. It is chosen by the families who did not have the opportunity to
say goodbye or were not able to arrive from out of town. It includes all
of the services of #1 plus the preparation of the body, such as bathing
and dressing, (it does not include embalming) and the stateroom. Although
we offer a selection of cremation caskets, we also offer these families a
“cremation bed” whereby without the cost of purchasing a casket they may
view their loved one on our “cremation bed”, a twin size bed with full
bedding, in a soothing and accustomed atmosphere. It may also be used for
services in our Chapel.
- CREMATION WITH PUBLIC VIEWING
This type of service is for the families who want their friends and extended
families to view and have the opportunity to visit before the cremation takes
place. They have a choice of cremation caskets or cremation bed, the stateroom,
register book and cards and viewing and visitation for the day so that people
can come by the funeral home and sign the book, view the body and visit with
the family. It includes all of # 1 plus embalming, dressing, cosmetology, and
preparation of hair.
- CREMATION WITH FUNERAL SERVICES
This type of service is a traditional funeral service with the body present with
the only difference being at the end of the funeral service, the body goes to the
crematory instead of a cemetery. As with all our funeral services we tailor to
the individual family’s needs and traditions. As with our tranditional funeral
services, you may choose to have your service at our Chapel or the Church of your
choice. We offer a procession to the crematory for our Hindu and Buddhists families.
