Cremation Services

We were the area’s first funeral home to include “ cremation service” in our name when we opened our doors in 2012, and the first funeral home & cremation service in the area to fully and completely embrace the idea that today’s families are clearly seeking simpler, more affordable services. This very often includes cremation as the family’s final disposition choice.

Today, we remain the area’s only funeral home & cremation service focused entirely on the wishes of today’s families as we have been from the beginning.

With cremation, as with burial, all service and celebration of life options are available to meet the needs and wishes of your family. You may choose to have a gathering or service with your loved one’s body present for final farewells before the cremation, you may choose a memorial service in which the body of the deceased is not present, or you may choose very simple “direct cremation.”

More often than ever before, families are choosing cremation followed by a service or gathering in the following weeks at a time that better accommodates the ability of family and friends to travel. A memorial service or gathering may be at a church, or one of many other locations appropriate for the one who has died. We can help with these arrangements and the things you may need to have the gathering that is appropriate and meaningful to you.

Michigan law requires the services of a licensed funeral director, and a licensed funeral home anytime a death occurs. This includes cremation services as well. There are certain duties that only a funeral director can provide.  We can help you in this way only, or in many other ways if you choose.

We encourage you to look carefully at your choices. In Michigan, many “cremation societies” or “cremation companies” are advertising exceptional "reasonable fees". Recently, a number of families have even encountered out of state, internet only providers. It appears they are not funeral professionals at all and exist only on the internet. We are here to help you on a moment’s notice, at any time.

Our cremation services start at $1,495.00 for simple direct cremation, many other services are available. Please feel free to contact us anytime for an explanation of our services to families choosing cremation. We also invite you to visit our website dedicated to families choosing cremation, www.northernmichigancremation.com. We promise you only our best with professionalism, compassion and affordability.
