How to Select A Cremation Service ProviderCremation has become an increasingly popular option over the years. Whether your loved one made their own arrangements before passing on or you are searching for the best cremation service provider on their behalf, we have compiled a list of factors to consider.




Does the cremation service provider have an on-site crematory?

This is important as many cremation service providers outsource their cremation services to a third party, which could be in another city or county. If you are not comfortable with that, you will need to ensure that the funeral home you select has an on-site crematory.

At American Heritage Cemetery Funeral Home Crematory, our on-site crematory means that your loved one is never out of your care until we are ready to return them to you. This way, you can enjoy complete peace of mind knowing that your loved one is being treated with care and dignity at all times in a familiar location.

Can I tour the cremation facilities ahead of time?

Hence, we are happy to answer any questions or even schedule a tour of our cremation facilities at American Heritage Cemetery Funeral Home Crematory, We aim to be completely transparent throughout every step of the process and will work with you to ensure that your loved one gets the ceremony you want for them.

What if my loved one wishes to be laid to rest next to a family member who chose burial?

Although cremation is gaining popularity, in-ground burial remains the most common option for laying deceased loved ones to rest. However, it is not unheard of for one family member to choose burial and another to choose cremation, yet they wish to be together. Rest assured that at American Heritage Cemetery Funeral Home Crematory, we can honor this request and arrange for a common burial in the same plot for both your loved ones.

What options are available for the interment of cremated remains?

This is another important question to ask the cremation service provider to determine if they are a good fit for your loved one’s requirements. At American Heritage Cemetery Funeral Home Crematory, we offer a selection of urns and cremation jewelry for memorialization, as well as a cremation burial at our garden of tranquillity. Furthermore, we are in the process of developing cremation niches that will be situated around our outdoor pavilion.
