Talk to us if you want a memorial service or a funeral ceremony to honor your loved one. Our funeral director can help you decide on which service to arrange.

Cremation Followed by a Memorial Service

A memorial service allows you and other family members to share the good things a loved one has done. You can invite friends and family over to share wonderful memories of them. We can make this happen with the help of our experienced and caring team members.

This cremation arrangement costs about $47 a month or $2,295 for a flame-based cremation and $69 a month or $3,295 for a water-based cremation. Our team will take care of the refrigeration of the remains while waiting for the cremation to be performed. Unlike the basic cremation, this arrangement already includes private family viewing. We’ll also take care of the transfer of the remains, including the vehicle to be used.

In addition, you also get the memorial service plus an online obituary listing. If you need more information or have some final requests, let us know, and we’ll do our best to accommodate them.

Funeral Ceremony Followed by Cremation

Some family members prefer to have a funeral ceremony as a proper closure. Oakwood Hill Funeral Chapel & Cemetery also offers this type of arrangement, plus a cremation service. This service costs $70 a month or $3,395 for a flame-based cremation and $92 or $4,395 for a water-based cremation.

You’ll have our funeral director and staff to help with transferring the remains and taking care of the cremation process after the funeral ceremony. Our team will also take care of the online obituary listing along with the private family viewing.

The funeral service will be at Oakwood Hill Funeral Chapel & Cemetery. Additional charges are applied if you prefer to have the ceremony outside our funeral chapel. Contact us if you’re planning to arrange a cremation for a loved one who has passed or to get a preplan.

Easy Online Arrangements

Fire-Based Cremation

Terramation and cemetery services can be expensive. Getting a burial service is more affordable, but if you want to save money, we recommend getting a fire-based cremation service.
