It is their mission to offer services that are affordable and distinctive while offering a high level of competence and care to each family they serve. Their rates are among the least expensive in the area, but this doesn’t mean they ever sacrifice quality or a willingness to take those extra measures that set them apart from others in the funeral and cremation industry.

Central Chapel Funeral & Cremation has been in business for generations and, while their services have evolved through the decades, one thing that has never changed is the confidence and trust shown them by the communities they serve. They’ve gained this trust through personal service, transparent pricing, and a commitment to excellence.

Cremation has become a popular and growing option largely due to affordability, flexibility, and simplicity.

Cremation offers the flexibility to plan a memorial service at the time and place of the family’s choosing, beneficial for those who may have friends and family out of town. It allows for the extra time that may be needed to create a service that will be truly meaningful and personally reflective of the life of a loved one. Lastly, cremation offers simplicity. There’s no funeral to plan, and the deceased can be transferred directly to the crematory and everything can be completed within a matter of hours. Central Chapel Funeral & Cremation can assist with all cremation needs and will always assure the utmost dignity of the deceased.
