Cremation Service Wallace and Warsaw, NC

Seymour Funeral Home, originally founded in the 1920s, is a community leader in pre-arranged funerals, cremation services, and insurance in the Duplin County area. Founder I.D. Seymour began stocking caskets at a general store, and it wasn’t long before he invested in a hearse and the necessary equipment to offer complete funeral services. In the late 1920s, Seymour opened a dedicated funeral home on W. Chestnut St., where the business remained until 1961, when it relocated to S. George St. In 1980, a modern 20,000 square foot facility was constructed on Wayne Memorial Drive, allowing expanded services to be delivered with greater efficiency.

Today, Seymour Funeral Home is owned by Ben Strickland and Gary Taylor, who remain committed to the community they serve. Seymour Funeral Home strives to provide cost-effective funeral services, comfort, and compassion to families in the area. A full range of traditional, customized, and cremation services are available. Seymour Funeral Home can work with families to design a service that meets their needs and reflects their values in a manner that will truly honor their loved one.

Direct Cremations in Duplin County

Cremation is an option that has grown in popularity over the last few decades. Cremation has become a popular choice for many reasons, including environmental concerns, affordability, and the needs of an ever-increasingly mobile lifestyle. When cremation is chosen, the deceased is treated with the utmost respect, and processes are in place to ensure proper identification of the ashes prior to them being returned to loved ones.

Cremation provides a more environmentally friendly alternative to traditional burial because it preserves already limited green space, preserves limited resources, and eliminates the need for the use of chemicals and the introduction of potential toxins into the environment. Cremation is also a more affordable option. When choosing direct cremation, there is no need to embalm the deceased for viewing or have a traditional funeral service, so cremation costs less. If so desired, a memorial service can be held after cremation. Memorial services can be public or private, and they can be held at the location of the family’s choosing. The family may choose to retain the ashes, or they can be buried in a ceremonial garden, traditional grave, or scattered in a location that was special to the departed. In our modern age, people are moving an average of five times across a lifetime. Cremation relieves concerns about who will tend to a gravesite left behind and allows families to retain all or a portion of the ashes, which can be kept with them forever in remembrance of their loved one.
