• Cremation Services

  • If you are interested in cremation or if you have ever wondered about the cremation process or even if you are just looking for ideas for family or friends you know who are in need of this type of information, please feel free to call us twenty four hours a day, seven days a week. We answer our own telephones and use no answering services and any one of our staff can help you. We offer several cremation services for pre-arrangements in the convenience of your home or at our facilities.

    We offer state of the art equipment and our crematory is run by factory trained, certified cremation specialists. We have a special vacuuming system that is used after each cremation that insures there are no comingling of cremains. We offer a "Cremation Certificate" with each cremation that specifies the quality of care and our commitment to each family we serve.

     

    Cremation Service

    Charlie Marshall Crematory offers five (5) different types of cremation services.

    1. DIRECT CREMATION
      This cremation service is for families who want immediate cremation with no viewing or perhaps they choose to have a memorial service at their church or home without the body present and only want to contract for the cremation itself. It includes removal from the facility or home, arrangements, counseling, securing doctor’s signatures on death certificates, securing signatures on cremation permits, authorization and transit permits, bookkeeping and accounting and general clerical administration, vehicle, cremation fee and the cost of insurance and maintenance.

    2. CREMATION WITH MEMORIAL SERVICES
      This cremation service is the one most people associate with cremation. This is where the cremation takes place and then there is a service in our Chapel or your Church with or with out the cremains being present. This service includes all of #1 plus our Chapel for services, the Register Book, Thank you Cards and choice of Music. We incorporate personal touches to our services such as photographs, tackle boxes and fishing poles for the fishing enthusiast, saddle, rope and spurs for the rancher and other personal items that reflect the person whose life is being celebrated.

    3. CREMATION WITH PRIVATE VIEWING
      This cremation service is for families who choose cremation but the immediate family members would like to view the body before cremation occurs. It is chosen by the families who did not have the opportunity to say goodbye or were not able to arrive from out of town. It includes all of the services of #1 plus the preparation of the body, such as bathing and dressing, (it does not include embalming) and the stateroom.

    4. CREMATION WITH PUBLIC VIEWING
      This type of service is for the families who want their friends and extended families to view and have the opportunity to visit before the cremation takes place. They have a choice of cremation caskets or cremation bed, the stateroom, register book and cards and viewing and visitation for the day so that people can come by the funeral home and sign the book, view the body and visit with the family. It includes all of # 1 plus embalming, dressing, cosmetology, and preparation of hair.

    5. CREMATION WITH FUNERAL SERVICES
      This type of service is a traditional funeral service with the body present with the only difference being at the end of the funeral service, the body goes to the crematory instead of a cemetery. As with all our funeral services we tailor to the individual family’s needs and traditions. As with our traditional funeral services, you may choose to have your service at our Chapel or the Church of your choice. We offer a procession to the crematory for our families of the Hindu, Buddhists and other religious denominations.

    (Applies to Services #3, #4 and #5)
    When cremation has been selected by the family, Charlie Marshall Funeral Home offers a "Rental Casket" or a "Cremation Bed" for a visitation and/or funeral service. In this way, the family does not have to purchase a casket. A "Rental Casket" is a specially crafted solid oak or metal casket that has an inner cremation container to hold your loved one. The cremation container has the same features as a regular casket, like a pillow, mattress, overlay and throw. Our "Cremation Bed", is a twin size bed with full bed linen that your loved one would rest on, in a soothing and accustomed atmosphere.
