With cremation services, we at Powers Funeral Home 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.
NOTE: Powers-Kell Funeral Home does not ship cremated remains by mail. They must be buried or hand delivered to the next of kin.
