Cremation Pricing

Direct Cremation Services                         Prices starting at $1650.00

At the Shepardson Family of Funeral Homes, we offer many services, including cremation.  Direct cremation is a process by which the deceased is cremated without a viewing or a traditional funeral ceremony. Direct cremation requires no embalming and may save a significant amount of money in terms of overall funeral costs. Additionally, direct cremation affords the family a variety of options for the direct conveyance of the cremated remains. The family may take possession of the cremains or we can deliver or ship the cremains to a cemetery or other location as desired.
 
When choosing a Direct Cremation option, the family may still opt for a memorial service at a later time.
 
Direct Cremation services from the Shepardson Family Funeral Homes include:

  • Professional services and arrangements by the funeral directors
  • Transfer of remains to funeral home
  • Preparation of body for cremation
  • Alternative container for cremation
