Simple Cremation

Des Moines, Iowa Affordable Cremations

Also known as a direct Cremation, with this option no formal services are held. The cremation is performed and then the cremated remains are returned to the family or laid to rest without ceremony. We assist the family by performing the cremation and complete all the necessary legal documents. We will also assist in the selection of the urn and the final resting place of the cremated remains. This option is not as sentimental as the full service cremation or cremation with a Memorial Service, but it is the most cost effective option for our families. You can take a look at our Cremation Prices page or our Current Promotions for more information on how cost effective this option is.
