Burial Options & Personalization

Funeral Burial Services Florida

The traditional funeral with pallbearers, visitation, and a memorial service that follows is the most commonly chosen service. A Heath hearse will transport the casket to the funeral site and cemetery for a burial or entombment. If you have selected cremation, you may take the ashes in a beautiful urn.

Traditional funerals involve more services, so they usually cost more. You can select from a variety of services that include the casket, flowers, embalming, dressing, room rentals and extra vehicles to transport family members. The costs of a cemetery plots or crypt are other options, but Heath can help with everything you need.

Things to think about:

  • Casket selection
  • Transfer of the deceased to our funeral home. Call us anytime, day or night. We have staff on duty 24/7 and we can help.
  • Dressing, cosmetology and other care of the deceased
  • Professional support and administrative staff assistance. We’ve got answers, checklists and information to help.
  • Death certificates and other paperwork to look for
  • Notifying relatives
  • Obituary information
  • Memory tables, bulletin boards and videos
  • Selecting the best fit for a visitation room and/or service
  • General use of the facilities for the service and arrangements
  • Funeral service
  • Use of funeral coach
  • Limousine
  • Utility car
  • Special music
  • Registry book
  • Memorial folders or prayer cards
  • Acknowledgment cards

You may want to have a special clergy or another family friend conduct the service. Family members often take part by giving a reading, singing or helping the clergy. It’s all part of celebrating a life well lived and a person well loved.

Why the Traditional Service is So Popular
A traditional service for burial, entombment or cremation is a way to get family, friends and associates together to remember, grieve−and celebrate a life well lived. Whatever service style you prefer, it is the beginning of closure; it is the emotional side of accepting that someone we love is gone.

Direct Burial
You may prefer to have the burial shortly after death. We offer simple containers, and because there is no viewing or visitation, no embalming is required. You choose whether to have a memorial service. Costs include the basic service fee as well as transportation and care of the body, the purchase of a casket or burial container and a cemetery plot or crypt.

Green Burials
Heath Funeral Chapel is proud to offer families the option of a green burial. We are a member of the Green Burial CouncilHeath is the only funeral home in Polk County to be recognized as a green funeral home and the first funeral home in the state of Florida to have obtained the Council’s highest standard of “Three Leafs.” If you or a loved one is interested in a green burial, call us at 863-682-0111 or our toll free number (800) 330-0111. Click here to learn more about green burials.

Cremation
A growing number of people choose cremation, today. The reasons are widespread, and include preferring to spend less on a funeral, leave more to family or charity, wanting to support the “green” environmental concerns of future land scarcity and more. It’s an option, it’s personal, and the choice is yours.
