Cremation

Cremation is a simple and affordable alternative to “traditional” burial services for your loved one. Many want to put as little a burden on their family as possible, and by choosing cremation you eliminate many difficult decisions, such as the need to buy a casket, vault, grave space, flowers, etc.

Nevertheless, even if you choose cremation, you still have many ways you can honor and celebrate your loved one’s life. Our caring staff will help you arrange any type of meaningful service you desire and it can be held before or after the cremation occurs. We also offer a beautiful setting for your family to come together and honor your loved one, or you are welcome to celebrate their life at your own church or in a more unique setting. No matter where you decide to gather together, such a service will make a difference in the lives of all who attend.

When you choose cremation, you provide your family countless alternatives to burial. You can scatter the ashes in a special location on land or at sea, keep them in a beautiful urn at home, place them in a columbarium niche, separate them into keepsake urns between family members, place the cremains into a necklace, have them blown into a unique piece of glass artwork, or you may bury them on a family plot in a cemetery.

We at the Ohio Cremation & Memorial Society also own and operate our own crematory, offering your family peace of mind. When you choose us for your cremation services, you’ll take comfort knowing that your loved one will never leave the shelter of our professional care.

From our heart to yours, we’re here to help you and your family in your time of need.
