Choosing the right type of service for you

The decisions you make to honor the life of your loved one are very personal, and the professional staff of Turner Funeral Homes can guide you through the process. In collaboration with your TFH funeral director, you will make three key decisions that help define the rest of the process: (1) what type of service to hold, (2) how to treat the body, and (3) where to lay the body to rest. Here are some things to consider.

Traditional Funeral Service

A familiar and time-honored option

Most families still choose to hold a traditional funeral service with burial. The familiar rituals associated with funeral services and burials often bring comfort and ease for families selecting this option.

Within this traditional path, TFH offers many options, such as visitation, viewing, rosary service, traditional funeral service, graveside service, and receptions. Services may be public or private and as simple or elaborate as a family desires. Burial options also vary, including in-ground, mausoleum, or private family estates.

Cremation Services

A simple and dignified option

Families that choose cremation find that these memorializations are evolving. Today, many choose to celebrate life with a traditional service including viewing, visitation, rosary service, chapel or church service, and reception. These services offer family and loved ones the opportunity to gather to remember their loved one.

The options for placement of cremated remains (cremains) are also increasing. A traditional gravesite may be used, with a headstone or memorial that is typical of traditional burial. Some families choose to scatter cremated remains at a meaningful location (with proper permission), or keep the cremains in an urn.

As you decide which type of service is right for you or a loved one, consider these things:

  • Does your religious or faith tradition impact your decision?
  • Will your family (or those involved in the decision) be in agreement?
  • What is your budget?
  • Do you have time constraints that impact when a funeral or memorial service can be held?
  • What burial options will you choose?
