Cremation is an option that is chosen by many families
today. At Heath Funeral Home we offer a variety of options for those
who chose cremation. First of all we differ from others by providing
the same level of professional service to cremation customers as we
provide to traditional
service customers with an emphasis on making each service individually
unique. Furthermore we ensure that cremations that are performed
under our care are carried out by professionals in cremation facilities
that meet our high expectations.

There are a number of cremation options that are
available to you:
followed by cremation.
The deceased is transported to the funeral home
from the place of death. Embalming is preformed by one of our licensed
professional embalmers, the deceased is then dressed and the appropriate
cosmetics are applied. The deceased is then placed in a specially
designed cremation casket for the visitation and funeral service. After
the service the interior of the casket is removed which serves as the
cremation container, and the deceased is then taken to the crematory for
cremation. This option will allow everyone involved the closure
provided at a funeral and the wishes of cremation can still be honored.
Cremation Viewing Casket
This is the casket used when a traditional service or viewing is desired. After each use the interior of the casket comes out and serves as a cremation container. A new interior is placed inside allowing the casket to be used again; this is a cost effective way to have a viewing when the final disposition will be cremation.
Just like our other caskets, customized cap panels can be placed inside this casket, as shown in this image. These panels can be retained by the family after the service.

Special wooden cremation caskets are also available
for purchase; these caskets allow the deceased to remain in the casket for
Visitation followed by
This option is basically the same as the above
option without a funeral service. After the visitation, wake or prayer
service the deceased will be cremated. A memorial service held after the
cremation would be an excellent addition to this option.
Direct cremation with
a memorial service.
This option includes picking up the deceased from
the place of death, all paperwork and office fees, a cremation container
and cremation services. At a date of the family’s choice we will arrange
and conduct a memorial service to honor the deceased. This memorial
service can be held in our facility, a church, home, park or wherever the
imagination may lead (within reason). We provide items such as an urn to
be used for the service, picture boards, memory tables, etc. and we can
assist you with music selections. In many ways a memorial service is just
like a funeral with the exception that there is not a body present.
This option includes picking up
the deceased from the place of death, all paperwork and office fees, a
cremation container and cremation services. This option comes with no
ceremonies or rites. After cremation the cremated remains are returned to
the next of kin.
