FUNERAL SERVICES

The death of a loved one is a difficult time. If final arrangements have not been made prior to death, there are many decisions that must be made. We are here to assist you through this life experience. Whether you are looking for traditional or cremation services, we offer many different services choices to help you memorialize your loved one. Our directors and staff are here to assist you with the details of personalizing a service that best memorializes your loved one. Our services types include:

Traditional Funeral Services: A traditional funeral service is the most common request. It usually consists of visitation in the evening followed by a funeral service the next day. Photographs, special music and other special memorabilia can aid families in creating a service that will be meaningful. Families will need to choose a coffin/ casket and, because most cemeteries require an outer container for burial, a vault will also need to be chosen.

 

Same-Day Visitation /services: Some people choose to have a visitation immediately preceding a funeral service on the same day. This type of service usually includes 1-4 hours of visitation, followed immediately by service. Photographs, special music, and other special memorabilia can aid families in creating a service that will be meaningful Families will need to choose a coffin/casket and, because most cemeteries require an outer container for burial, a vault will also need to be chosen.

Direct Burial: With this type of service, there is no visitation. The family may or may not choose to have an officiant at the burial. There is no embalming. Families will need to choose a coffin/casket and, because most cemeteries require an outer container for burial a vault will also need to be chosen.

Memorial Services: This type of service can be conducted without the presence of the deceased. It may follow a direct burial or a cremation. Photographs, special music and other special memorabilia can aid families in creating a service that will be meaningful.

Graveside Services: Sometimes Families choose not to have a visitation. This type of service is held at the graveside and can be private if the family wishes. Families will need to choose a coffin/ casket and because most cemeteries require an outer container for burial, a vault will also need to be chosen.

Cremation Following Traditional Services: Cremation doesn't necessarily mean not having a service. Sometimes families choose to have a traditional service, followed by a cremation. As with a traditional services, it usually consist of visitation in the evening followed by a funeral service the next day Photographs, special music and other special memorabilia can aid families in creating a service that will be meaningful.  Rental coffins/caskets are available for these types of service and  we offer a wide variety of urns for families to select from. Embalming is required for this service

Direct Cremation Service: We Offer a wide variety of urns for families to select from when choosing a direct cremation. If a Family chooses a direct cremation, they may also wish to have a memorial service at a later date. There is no embalming needed if a family chooses direct cremation.

 Military Honours Services: Veterans are often remembered with some type of military honours. Whether it is at the funeral home or cemetery, most military branches have special customs that they use to memorialize your loved one's service to his/her country. These types of services can be incorporated into almost any of our funeral offerings

Fraternal Organization Services: Many times, families want to incorporate their loved one's membership in different organizations, into the service. These type of services can be incorporated into almost any of our funeral service offerings.

Out-of-town Services/Arrangements: When a family member dies away from his/he home, we can assist in arranging for services elsewhere.

Pre-Need Planning: Arranging for the funeral of a loved one often falls on survivors who are not prepared for the important decisions that must be made during this time of hardship. We feel that pre-arranging for a funeral can be a most important asset to a family at the time of the death of a loved one. It can lighten the burden from your family members and also helps to ensure that your personal wishes, or those of a loved one, are known.

Solomon Funerals have been caring for the families in our community for over 30 years. If you decide that pre-planning would be beneficial to you or a loved one, we can sit down with you to evaluate your funeral needs, and help you to construct a service that will accommodate your wishes. Your survivors can take comfort in knowing that they are implementing your desires.
