The funeral directors of Ervina White Beauford Funeral Service offer the residents of Phoenixville, PA three cremation options with each one being flexible in order to meet the specific needs and requirements of each family. First, we provide traditional cremation services. Similar to the traditional services given prior to a burial, your loved one is expertly prepared for any viewing and a following funeral service is arranged. The only difference is that he or she will be placed in a rental casket or a cremation casket for the ceremonies.
Our second cremation option is arranging a memorial service to follow the cremation of your loved one. This can take place in our funeral home, at your home, at your loved one’s favorite restaurant, a reception hall, a cherished park or other setting of your choice. Also, when planning a memorial gathering you have the ability to choose the date, allowing you to best accommodate the various schedules of your guests. Less formal than a funeral, you can theme the event to an interest, hobby or lifestyle of your loved one and serve his or her favorite dishes. We will assist you at every stage and together we will design a highly personalized and meaningful tribute to your deceased.
Lastly, we offer direct cremations which do not include any viewing, visitation, funeral or memorial ceremony. With this service, we handle the removal and transfer of your loved one from the pace of death and all the required documentation. Please note that grief experts agree that holding some form of commemoration for your departed is important to the healing process, so we strongly recommend that you arrange for this healing experience for the benefit of your relatives, friends and yourself.
After the cremation, many options for final disposition are available to you. You can keep the urn in your home, place it in a columbarium niche, scatter the cremated remains at a treasured location, make use of the urn gardens now found at many cemeteries, inter the cremains in your family plot or put a portion of the ashes in keepsake jewelry or solid glass sculpture. We have an assortment of decorative urns to choose from and will guide you in your selection. Our funeral home is proud to serve the residents of Phoenixville, PA in all matters related to final arrangements.
