Cremation is becoming more and more common in today’s world, for religious, cultural and sometimes practical reasons. That is why Heath Funeral Chapel opened the first crematory in Polk County in 1971. A funeral service followed by cremation can be the same as a funeral service followed by a ground burial. After cremation, the remains are usually placed in an urn. The urn can be interred in an existing family burial plot, a special cremation section at a cemetery or placed in a cemetery columbarium. It can also be kept and displayed. Scattering cremated remains may be done on land or water in accordance with local laws.
Every funeral service should be a memorable, warm reflection of the person who has died. Many families believe costs may restrict them from planning a fitting tribute, but at Heath, all of our services can be customized to meet a family’s needs or wishes. Our staff has always available to help you plan and design a memorial that fully reflects your wishes.
A memorial celebrates a life lived, and can take many forms. You can use photographs, a special song, even a favorite tie or golf clubs to make the funeral service more meaningful. Just tell us what it is that made your loved one so special and we’ll help you personalize the service.
Whether you are pre-planning or have lost your loved one, our staff can give you information about what needs to be done, full details about our products and services, and help making necessary decisions. We will also make sure that the memorial you choose is carried out exactly the way you want it.
