Your Choice of Services
Vernon Family Funeral Homes offers a variety of funeral and cremation service options that can be tailored to your family’s preferences. Essential to the grieving process, funeral services provide closure to surviving friends and family members. Our licensed funeral directors will help you design a funeral or cremation service just the way you want it, and within your budget.
Following are examples of options:
Traditional Funeral Services
A traditional funeral service may include visitation the day or night before the funeral, or just prior to the service. You may choose to have the service in one of our three funeral homes, a church, or other place special to your loved one. If needed, we can arrange for clergy. The service may be followed by a procession to the cemetery for a committal service prior to burial.
Memorial Services
A memorial service, at which the body is not present, offers friends and family a time to remember their loved one through fellowship. The ceremony may be held in one of our funeral homes, a church, or other place of your choosing. You may choose to have a visitation the day before or just prior to the memorial service.
Cremation Services
Cremation is another service choice and allows for a variety of services to memorialize your loved one, from traditional services to memorial services.
Options for the final placement of the cremated remains include earth burial, entombment, and scattering. Some families choose to keep cremated remains in an urn or other container.
