Cremation Services

We understand that every family has different needs. From the type of gathering, to the selection of readings and music, to the final resting place-every aspect of a funeral reflects the uniqueness of the individual who is being honored.

At Lux Funeral Home & Cremation Services, we have the resources to meet your every need, all under one roof. My staff and I will work with you to put together a personalized package-one that takes into consideration your religious and cultural traditions, your personal preferences and your financial means.

We have created the following cremation packages to represent our most requested services to our families. These prices are subject to change without notice. In addition, the following packages do not include certain charges, e.g., cash advance related expenses.

 


 

Cremation and Funerals


Choosing cremation neither eliminates nor does it require a funeral service. Traditional or contemporary services are often planned before or after the cremation process. A funeral service followed by cremation may be exactly the same as a funeral service followed by ground burial. They can be elaborate or simple, traditional or nontraditional. Arrangements and ceremonies tend to be as individual as the persons for whom and by whom they are made. They may be personalized specifically to reflect the life of the deceased, and thus have a special meaning. Lux Funeral Home & Cremation Services is able to assist in any and all of your Funeral Service needs.

 

 

Complete Cremation Service


The Complete Cremation Service will be just like a complete funeral service except cremation will follow instead of the casketed burial. This can be accommodated by the use of a cremation casket (casket that is designed to be cremated) or the use of a rental casket. Following the viewing, service or ceremony, and eventual cremation, the cremated remains can be buried, properly scattered, or returned to the family for safe keeping. Urns are used to hold the cremated remains. Urns can be constructed out of basic materials like cardboard or plastic, or constructed out of more protective materials like basic and semi-precious metals, ceramics, and woods.

Immediate Cremation Service


The Immediate Cremation Service can be arranged as an immediate disposition of the body, but is most times followed by a memorial service at the church, funeral home or other location. A memorial service is one where the body is not present. We recommend that if you select an immediate cremation that you are allowed a time, if possible, to privately view the body as a family. If the viewing can be done in a matter of a few hours after the death then embalming will not be necessary. If there is to be a long delay (more than 8-12 hours) then embalming would be encouraged. If the viewing could not be done within 48 hours then embalming may be required. Viewing of the deceased is a very important step in acknowledging that the death has occurred. Having some type of service or ceremony is also a key ingredient to a healthy recovery of a loss due to a death.

Importance of Memorialization
