Buddhist Cremation Package
This package was developed specifically for our Buddhist families. We take care to ensure the body is carried and handled in the traditional, respectful manner. Family members are invited to participate in the body’s preparation for cremation, as well as attend the cremation process. Services such as transportation of the body, filing the death certificate and refrigeration are a standard part of this package as well.
This package is designed for families who choose to have a funeral mass at their church or service in one of our chapels. A funeral service is a loving tribute, honoring your loved one and their spirituality. This is also an opportunity for loved ones to begin the healing process. The service takes place after the cremation, and includes all services associated with the cremation, an urn, flowers, a memorial record package, and the use of our equipment and staff.
The completed membership form and registration fee must be received by our office prior to our services being needed in order to be extended our discounted member rates.
We work very hard to keep our prices low. These packages do not include cash advance items such as newspaper charges for obituary notices, cemetery costs and clergy honorariums. The family is responsible for obtaining and purchasing certified copies of the death certificate.
