Ervina White Beauford Funeral Service offers the residents of Norristown, PA many options when choosing cremation for themselves or for a loved one. You can arrange for a traditional visitation and funeral to come before the cremation. Many choose to host a memorial service in our funeral home, a church, their home, a favorite restaurant, local reception hall or another setting, and this gathering takes place after the cremation has been performed. Grief experts have all found that having some form of ceremony or service in commemoration of a departed loved one is important to the healing process. We would be honored to assist you in paying tribute to your loved one and in handling their final disposition.
When cremation is selected, there are many options for dealing with the resulting ashes. You may keep them in an urn or cremation vessel in your home, have the urn buried in your family plot, place the inurned cremains in a columbarium niche, use an urn garden, place a portion of the ashes in keepsake jewelry or solid glass sculpture or scatter the cremated remains on land or at sea. Some family members who live far apart from each other choose to separate the cremains into mini urns so that each person can keep part of the ashes nearby. A major advantage of cremation is that cremated remains can be taken with you should you decide to move.
Although cremation is increasing in popularity in the United States, interment remains the dominant form of final disposition. The ceremonies that precede a burial center around the casketed remains. We have a selection of caskets to choose from and we will work with you to find one that is suitable to your finances and your preferences. We offer traditional burial services that are preceded by a visitation and a funeral. We also arrange to have the casketed remains taken directly to the burial plot for a simple and dignified graveside service. Please rely on us for all funeral home services in the Norristown, PA area.
