Private burial

A private burial or delivery to the cemetery is where our funeral home prepares for the deceased to be delivered to the cemetery without any funeral service, and no family and friends attending. This is also known as a "Direct Burial". Depending on the burial site chosen, a plaque, headstone or monument can be arranged.
