Cremation Services in Union County
J. F. Floyd Mortuary is proud to offer cremation services, a means of final disposition through heat and evaporation. As cultural taboos have fallen away, cremation has risen in popularity dramatically in the past few decades as people envision the earthly vestiges left behind spending an eternity among the stars, pressed into lab-created jewels, or languishing amidst the coral reef at the bottom of a vast ocean.
Cremation allows for a traditional funeral service and burial or, if preferred, cremation can be performed and a life celebrated through a memorialization ceremony or scattering ceremony. Cremated remains can be buried, interred in a ceremonial garden or columbarium, or scattered in a location that was special to the deceased.
Cremation has caught on as an option that is more affordable, environmentally friendly, and amenable to a more mobile lifestyle. As embalming and traditional burial are unnecessary with cremation, cremation presents a more cost-effective option. Cremation also helps to preserve limited resources required in traditional burial, including rare woods and metals, cement, and already limited green space. With people making an average of five moves across a lifetime in our modern era, cremation allows people to keep a loved one close without the concerns of tending a grave left behind in another location.
Cremation is performed in a tightly controlled process, utilizing a chamber that is large enough to accommodate just one person at a time. Remains are carefully identified to ensure they are returned to the proper family. Cremation facilities allow one or more family members to witness cremation, if desired.
