What is a Direct Cremation? A cremation without viewing, of any kind, and/or without a funeral ceremony or rite, prior to the cremation. If you wish to have a viewing or funeral services prior to the cremation, please contact a Traditional Funeral Home to assist you with the arrangements.
What do I do in the event a loved one passes? If a loved one passes make sure that you provide the facility with our Name and Phone number. Once we are notified by the facility or by you, we will begin to take your loved one into our care. We will collect the necessary information to complete the cremation packet to be emailed to you. This should be completed within a few hours of our notification. Our cremation packet will have further instructions and time lines when you receive it.
How do I pay for the Cremation? We make this part easy. Once we have the total price for the cremation and death certificates we will send you an email with the total and a convenient way for you to pay with your credit or debit card. Payment must be secured before the cremation can be performed. Payment should be made when the email is received. We are not able to “hold” until money can be gathered.
Houston is the largest metropolis in Texas, extending to Galveston Bay. It’s closely linked with the Space Center Houston, the coastal visitor center at NASA’s astronaut training and flight control complex. The city’s relatively compact Downtown includes the Theater District, home to the renowned Houston Grand Opera, and the Historic District, with 19th-century architecture and upscale restaurants.
Houston is also home to the internationally renowned M. D. Anderson Cancer Center and the 2022 World Series Champion Houston Astros.
