The reasons people prefer cremation over traditional burial are varied. For some, it seems more environmentally sound. For others, it is a more spiritual decision. Still others are not sure why they prefer cremation, but know that they would like to have the option available to them.
Families choosing cremation may still have a funeral service, memorial service and a permanent place for loved ones to visit for years to come. Stygar Funeral Homes' funeral directors will work with you and your family to make sure the service has as many or as few of the elements of a traditional burial you desire.
We own and operate our own crematory at our Stygar Mid Rivers Funeral Home and Crematory, so your loved one never leaves our personal care.
For disposition, families may choose:
permanent possession - family or friend retains urn as cherished possession
scattering - scattering of cremated remains over a special place such as a lake, ocean or park burial/above ground entombment - placing of urn in a mausoleum, columbarium niche or grave. If you have questions about cremation, feel free to call one of Stygar's licensed funeral directors.
