Service Options

Planning for final disposition can be a very difficult process for families who have just lost a loved one. But it’s important to provide those who are grieving with a supportive environment in which they can begin to find closure, say goodbye, and come to terms with the loss. Gathering with friends and family gives everyone the opportunity to connect, share memories, offer words of sympathy, and create a lasting network of comfort and support as they start the journey toward healing.

Burial Services

There are different services that you can choose for a loved one’s burial, depending upon your individual needs and preferences:

  • Immediate burial means that your loved one will be buried or entombed without a public service or gathering.
  • Visitation, also called a viewing, wake, or calling hours, allows family and friends to gather in a room with the departed loved one in an open or closed casket and say goodbye or offer their support and sympathy to the bereaved.
  • A memorial service at the funeral home is a ceremony which serves to celebrate, honor, and remember the life of the deceased after the burial has taken place.


Cremation Services

The biggest misconception about cremation is that there can't be a visitation prior to cremation. This is absolutely not the case. You might also consider holding a memorial service to celebrate the life of your loved one after the cremation has taken place. It is your choice whether to have your loved one’s cremains present at the memorial service. There are many options open to you when it comes to honoring your loved one's life. After the cremation and memorial services, there are a variety of choices for your loved one's final disposition:

  • Interment means that you'll bury or entomb your loved one's cremated remains. This can be in a family plot, a memorial site, a cremation niche or urn garden, or in a variety of other indoor and outdoor locations.
  • Scattering allows you to spread your loved one's cremated remains in a memorial garden, a cemetery, over water, or across any other meaningful site. You also can choose to scatter some of the cremated remains and retain the rest in an urn for interment or another form of disposition. (Refer to Maryland’s scattering regulation).
  • Placing cremated remains in multiple urns allows family members who are separated by distance to each feel the comfort of having their loved one's final resting place in a nearby location.


Witnessing the Cremation

A cremation witnessing provides the opportunity for a family to be with their loved one and participate in the moments leading up to their final disposition. The family can witness the final journey of their loved one as they enter the cremation retort, where the cremation process begins. For some, being present during the cremation is an important part of their faith and family traditions. For others, it is an important part of saying their final goodbye.
