Traditional Services

     

A traditional service for burial, entombment or cremation, is usually the service of choice. O'Neil-Lawson Funeral Home believes that the traditional funeral best serves the needs of family and friends. It allows proper time for grief and mourning. Also, a traditional service can be done with cremation.

The traditional funeral service usually includes the following:

  • Casket
  • Transfer of the deceased to the funeral home
  • Embalming
  • Dressing, cosmetology, and other care of the deceased
  • Professional support and administrative staff assistance
  • Use of visitation rooms
  • General use of the facilities for the service and arrangements
  • Funeral service
  • Use of funeral coach
  • Family car
  • Utility vehicle
  • Register book
  • Acknowledgement cards
  • Memorial folders or prayer cards
  • 24 hour telephone and message service

The traditional service is a meaningful expression for the family, and it gives friends and associates an opportunity to offer their tributes in the way of flowers or memorials to churches or organizations.

Generally, a member of the clergy or other person chosen by the family conducts a service of remembrance. We encourage the active participation of the family in helping plan this part of the service. Many times family members take part by giving a reading, singing or assisting the clergy.

Cremation Service

     

With the cremation services, we at O'Neil-Lawson Funeral Home believe you should be able to choose the type of service that you find most meaningful. That's why our list of services includes many options.

Cremation Services (Continued)

Once cremated, a loved one's ashes may be placed in an urn and taken to a final resting place such as a family plot, urn garden, columbarium or a family member's home.

Sometimes, cremated remains are divided into several urns. This option works well when loved ones are spread out across the country.

Others choose to have their ashes scattered in a special cemetery garden or over land or water (where permitted by law). In this case, a portion of the cremated remains is usually kept in a keepsake urn as a remembrance.

If you choose cremation, a memorial service is appropriate, and recommended. Survivors still need the time and setting to grieve. We offer many types of services specifically for cremations, from simple cremation to a gathering and memorial service.
