A loved one's passing often leaves us feeling adrift. While most elect to hold some type of memorial service, the breadth of options available can be overwhelming. We want to make it easier. We are here to help you create a service that befits the life of your loved one. This section contains useful information about funeral options, what to do when death occurs, information on writing an obituary, and recommended funeral etiquette.
We pride ourselves on a wide range of services and options to meet your needs. Mount Pleasant and Oakland Cemeteries offers more than memorials, burial plots and cremation. We have columbarium niches, in-ground cremation plots, our beautiful cremation scattering garden and much more.
This section is meant to guide you through the immediate hours following a death. Please refer to it with any questions you may have about the steps required.
Traditionally, a burial service involves a visitation and is followed by a funeral service. While the casket is typically present at both these events, it is your decision whether to have the casket open. You then have a number of options for interment.
Cremation is an increasingly popular option for many people, serving as an alternative to burial. Reasons for preferring cremation vary. Some religions request it, while other people consider it more environmentally conscious. Some may simply like the idea of cremation more.
