Cremation Services Zebulon and Hilltop, GA
Fletcher-Day Funeral Home has been serving the communities of Thomaston and Pike County since 1893. Offering horse and carriage rentals to transport the deceased, C. M. Pasley, Sr. decided to pursue a side business of building caskets before focusing firmly on the funeral business in 1937.
In 1952, son-in-law Jimmy Fletcher joined the business prior to the move to the current location on North Church Street in 1972.
Today, Bob Fletcher and Darren Day have brought the business into the 21st century with up-to-date technologies and state-of-the-art facilities. Fletcher-Day Funeral Home prides itself on respecting the cultural and individual needs of each family it serves and appreciates being entrusted with the opportunity to create a personal tribute in respect for a meaningful life.

One of the services available in the Fletcher Day Funeral Home of Georgia is cremation. Cremation renders the physical remains of the deceased into a fine powder. Cremation is currently chosen as the preferred method of disposition of final remains by 40% of families. All indications point toward the trend growing and it will be chosen by more than 50% of households by 2018. Cremation is always performed under very strict guidelines in a tightly controlled process that ensures proper identification, individual cremation, and that the deceased is treated with dignity and respect at all times.
Cremation is a more cost-effective measure than traditional burial, eliminating the need for embalming, a casket, and burial. Cremation is also considered a more environmentally friendly option, preserving resources such as chemicals, wood, metal, and cement. Additionally, without the need for traditional burial, already limited green space is preserved.
Many religions and creeds are now accepting of cremation, and some embrace it as the only acceptable method of final disposition. Sikhs and Buddhists believe that cremation frees the spirit from the body. Cremation is an option that resonates with the mobile lifestyles of today.
More than ever, people are moving to multiple locations in their lifetimes. Cremated remains are easily transported in an urn, eliminating the need for concern about tending to a cemetery plot and allowing family to keep a remembrance of a loved one close.
