Funeral Merchandise

The better informed you are about goods and services, the better choice you will be able to make. The pages in this section will show you samples of caskets, vaults, urns and other merchandise to help educate you for the choice you will make.

Caskets are made in a wide variety of styles and materials. Less expensive caskets are made from materials such as pine or a composite hardboard, while very expensive caskets are made from the finest materials such as bronze or mahogany.

Most cemeteries require that the casket be placed in an outer burial receptacle, capable of withstanding the weight and pressures of the earth above and surrounding it. Our Merchandise Selection Room provides samples of vaults and other outer burial containers for each family to preview and make their selection.

Memorial Urns are permanent containers for the cremated body. A wide range of styles appropriate for burial, niches, scattering, keepsakes or discreet placement in a home is available. Your personal plans for the final placement of the urn can play an important part in your selection process. Some urns are ornately designed for display purposes while others are very basic in style. Many of the urns can also be personalized with engravings or laser designs.

  Urn Vaults
Urn Vaults are protective containers in which urns are commonly placed. In many cases, where families desire to bury the urn-encapsulated remains of their loved one, cemeteries will require the use of an urn vault. Much like burial vaults for caskets, urn vaults protect the urn from being crushed, and protect the ground above them from caving in over time.

  Markers & Monuments
Markers individualize and designate a physical place where loved ones can come to pay their respects. Monuments provide a distinct tribute to a life that has been lived.

A wide variety of floral arrangements are available from our local florists and can be displayed at the service, ceremony or visitation.
  Pet Merchandise
We have a number of specialized products to help you memorialize the memory of your pet.
