Cremation Services

Dulle-Trimble Funeral Home is the only funeral home in the area that offers on-site cremation services. Our private, on-site cremation center ensures the body of the deceased never leaves our care. This added security and dignity offers our families peace of mind during a very difficult time.

Our unique two-person pre-cremation sign-off process ensures the highest ethical and legal standards. Because your loved one always remains in our custody, we can assure that they are cared for appropriately, and their identity and cremated remains are secured.

Cremation can be memorialized in many ways. What is done before or after the cremation is up to the survivors. You can relieve the burden of these decisions by preplanning your arrangements so that your wishes will be honored.

Cremation and Funerals
Traditional or contemporary services are often planned before or after the cremation process. A funeral service followed by cremation may be exactly the same as a funeral service followed by ground burial. They can be elaborate or simple and traditional or nontraditional. Dulle-Trimble Funeral Home can assist in any and all of your funeral service needs.

Complete Cremation
This service is similar to a complete funeral service except cremation will follow instead of the casketed burial. This can be accommodated by the use of a cremation casket (casket that is designed to be cremated) or the use of a rental casket. 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.

Immediate Cremation
This service is arranged as an immediate disposition of the body, and 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 that you are allowed a time, if possible, to privately view the body as a family. If the viewing can be done in a matter of a few hours after the death then embalming will not be necessary. If there is to be a long delay (more than 8-12 hours) then embalming would be encouraged. 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 part of bereavement care and allows for a healthy recovery from loss due to a death.

Direct Cremation
This services offers cremation, while limiting funeral services to the removal and transportation of the deceased into our care.

Importance of Memorialization
Memorialization provides a permanent, secure place for cremated remains to be placed, and for family members and descendants to honor the lives of the deceased.

Cremation allows families many choices for memorializing a loved one. Some families choose to keep the cremated remains with them at home, or to scatter the remains over land or water. Dulle-Trimble Funeral Home offers the following memorialization options, among others, for cremated remains.



Memorialization Options for Cremation

Outdoor Niches
The cremated remains of your loved ones are safely held in one of our many above ground columbarium niches.

Scattering
Your loved one’s remains may be scattered freely within a dedicated, natural environment. There are also certain services which offer scattering among the sea or the stars.

Traditional Burial
In-ground burial on a family plot. Urns may be buried at the head or foot of a grave site.

Personalized Memorialization
Inscribe your family member’s name and a special saying on a tree plaque, park bench or other special memorial. We also have custom, unique urns and keepsakes, perfect for displaying inside your home.
