About 25% of today's funerals have cremation as their means of final disposition. There are many reasons for choosing a cremation option, including convenience, religous, cultural, environmental and/or financial reasons, to name but a few.
Regardless of your motivation, Coastal Funeral Home has the only on-site crematorium in Jackson County. This simply means that your loved one never leaves our care.
It is our opinion that cremation can leave family members and friends feeling "empty" or has been known to incite feelings of guilt without an appropriate tribute or memorialization for the life of your loved one.
Cremation can seem "empty" or leave family and friends with an "unfinished" feeling. We encourage our families to consider the arrangements in a traditonal sense with the exception of the disposition method. This is accomplished by arranging a visitation (this can be open or closed casket) prior to cremation. The cremation can be followed by a memorial service displaying a beautiful urn, and finally a committal ritual, whether ground burial or mausoleum entombment is desired.
We maintain a vast selection of beautiful urns, urn vaults (for in-ground burials), along with cremation jewelry, remembrance items, etc.
We also have a number of cremation niche's available in the Good Sheppard Mausoleum for those who prefer entombment.
