Choosing Cremation

The number of people choosing cremation has increased significantly in the past few years.

Carrying Urn with flower for a service

Many families are under the misconception that they cannot hold a meaningful service with a cremation. This is completely untrue. At  Horan & McConaty we help you arrange any type service you desire to be held before or after the cremation.  Cremation does not limit your options—in fact, it often opens the door to many unique service and memorialization opportunities.

Here are just a few memorialization options for cremation:

  • Outdoor Niches - The cremated remains of your loved ones may be safely held in one of our many above ground columbarium niches.
  • Scattering – Your loved one’s remains may be scattered freely within a dedicated, natural environment. There are also certain services which offer scattering among the sea or the stars.
  • Traditional Burial – In ground burial on a family plot – Urns may be buried at the head or foot of a grave site.
  • Personalized Memorialization – Inscribe your family member’s name and a special saying on a tree plaque, park bench or other special memorial. We also have custom, unique urns and keepsakes, perfect for displaying inside your home. For an overview of these items, please visit our Merchandise pages, or contact us directly and we will help you with your needs.
