Cherry Wood Urn Ark

Many families choosing cremation prefer to use our urn ark for the display of the urn at the funeral home or other location desired by you. The urn ark, which allows family and friends to serve as pallbearers, can also be used to transport the urn to the place of inurnment or burial.

Federal Perks

Government benefits for honorably discharged veterans may include a cemetery plot and burial allowances. Veterans may also be entitled to a custom headstone and the families of veterans also receive a full-size burial flag.  Survivors may be eligible for a family pension. Call for details.
