Cremation & Memorial

 Scotto Funeral Home provides cremation as an alternative to burial.

Burial Arrangement

Cremation, as well as burial and entombment, is the final destination of the funeral. Most families choose viewing, religious services, chapel services preceding the actual cremation although direct cremation can be your option. Scotto Funeral Home provides cremation as an environmentally responsible alternative to burial.

When You Select Cremation, You Still Have Choices.

The biggest misconceptions about cremation is that there can’t be any funeral, or because the final disposition is cremation, there will be no visitation or service. Nothing could be further from the truth. With cremation, families could choose the comfort of a traditional funeral with the cremation taking place afterwards.

Basic cremation may be right in certain circumstances, but others may desire additional services. As specialists in cremation, we can assist you and your family with any arrangement, such as memorial services or traditional funerals with services in a house of worship or any appropriate facility.

Memorial services before or after cremation are arranged with or without the deceased present, the service may occur following the cremation with the cremated remains present in an appropriate urn.

We can also arrange for your loved ones cremated remains to be shipped nationally or internationally if you desire.
