Cremation

Jefferson Memorial operates a cremetory located within the park, giving you the peace of mind that your loved one will never leave our care.

There are many ways to honor your loved one follow cremation, including a memorial visitation or service at the funeral home, your church, a cemetery, or even a favorite place! You may choose to take your loved one's cremated remains back home, or to memorialize them in a cemetery. The options available to families who choose cremation for their loved one are becoming more and more limitless; our funeral directors are always avaible to discuss options with you.

Please note that Jefferson Memorial Park does not permit scattering of cremated remains anywhere on the property. Instances of scattering within Jefferson Memorial property will be investigated by local police and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.  

 

 

With each Cremation Service that does not include a pre-paid inurnment at Jefferson Memorial Park, a security deposit of $650.00 will be added to the funeral home bill. The full amount of the deposit shall be refunded within 45 day after the funeral bill is paid in full, and the cremated remains are interred or taken back into the care of the family within 45 days of the date of cremation. In the unlikely event that cremated remains are abandoned to the funeral home, the deposit will be used to pay for the inurnment of the cremated remains in a simple niche,  communal sepulture, or ossuary without a name plate.
