On-Site Crematory


Each person is unique, and the choice of earth burial, entombment or cremation is a very personal one. When deciding on your final disposition, it is wise to consider the emotional needs of your survivors. By including your loved ones in your decision-making process, you may very well avoid added stress for them later, during a very emotional time.

Cremation is the process of using flame and heat to reduce human remains to little more than the calcium in bone fragments. These fragments are further reduced to a granulated form so they may be easily placed in a container or scattered. We pride ourselves in owning our own crematory, which is clean and modern, and operated by our own caring, dedicated and licensed staff.

More and more people are opting for cremation as their form of final disposition. Some feel that it is a more natural, or environmentally sound process. Others just feel more comfortable with the idea of cremation.

At Toland-Herzig, we have been entrusted with the care of many hundreds of cremation services. Our funeral homes have facilities to conduct private and public gatherings and ceremonies. Most importantly, we feel that it is the duty of our funeral directors to offer choices, to carefully listen to the family's preferences, and then to help carry out those wishes.

There are four main options when cremation is chosen as the form of final disposition, and any of these can be tailored to meet specific needs:

  • Cremation following a traditional ceremony, which may include viewing
  • Cremation following a viewing only
  • Cremation before or after a memorial ceremony or reception
  • Cremation when the decision has been made not to have ceremonies

Following the cremation, Toland-Herzig will help the family in placing the cremated remains in a cemetery or mausoleum space. We can also provide valuable knowledge and, or, assistance when the cremated remains are to be scattered, kept in one's personal possession, or apportioned.

Please contact us with any questions you may have regarding cremation. We will be glad to answer them. We can also send you a helpful brochure, "Cremation Options," and a general information form describing the cremation process in more detail.
