- About Us
Traditionally, the funeral will be a Complete Funeral Service. This includes a family or public viewing of the deceased. Following this will be a service, typically in the church or at the funeral home. This would be followed by the burial of the casketed remains.
A Graveside Service is another option. Quite often this would follow a time of visitation at the funeral home. The casketed remains would then be transferred to the cemetery where a graveside ceremony could take place followed by the burial.
Your deceased loved-one never leaves our care. Desert Rose strictly adheres to a process that ensures care, dignity, and honesty. If you are using our cremation services in order to uphold the wishes of your loved-one, but are personally unfamiliar with it, we will guide you through the process and offer all of the details, policies, and procedures that you desire to help you through
The Complete Cremation Service is another type of selected offering. This service will be just like a Complete Funeral Service, except cremation will follow instead of the casketed burial. This
can be accommodated by the use of a cremation casket (a casket that is designed to be cremated) for ceremonial purposes.
Following the viewing, service or ceremony, and eventual
cremation, the cremated remains can be buried, properly scattered, or returned to the family for safe keeping. Urns are used to hold the cremated remains. Urns can be constructed out of basic materials like cardboard or plastic, or constructed out of more protective materials like basic and semi-precious metals, ceramics, and woods. All of these can be purchased through Desert Rose Funeral Chapel.
The Immediate Cremation Service can be arranged as an immediate disposition of the body, but is most times followed by a memorial service at the church, funeral home or other location. A
Memorial Service is one where the body is not present.
We recommend that if you select an immediate cremation you are allowed a time, if possible, to privately view the body as a family. Viewing of the deceased is a very important step in acknowledging that the death has occurred. Having some type of service or ceremony is also a key ingredient to a healthy recovery of a loss due to a death.
