Simple Burials

Simple Burial Options in Des Moines, Waterloo & Cedar Falls

Also known as a direct burial, this option is selected when the survivors do not wish to have a visitation or funeral ceremony. A casket is required, but normally embalming is not performed and no viewing takes place. A graveside service can be held, but a simple burial may be completed without any ceremony, it depends on the survivors’ wishes.

Our goal is to provide Des Moines, Waterloo and Cedar Falls area families with as many options as possible when planning a funeral. That is why we offer two different burial options for your loved one, including full service burials and simple burials. If you have questions on our burial service options, please don’t hesitate to contact us for more information. Our counselors would be happy to assist you in determining all of your options when planning a funeral.
