Private On-Site Crematory
Our Crematory is operated by our knowledgeable and licensed professionals. We strictly adhere to a Cremation Code of Ethics and are members of CANA (Cremation Association of America), which provides advanced staff training. Because our crematory is located within our funeral home facility your loved one will never be turned over to the care of a crematory miles away, where they will be attended to by people you've never even met. And to best serve our community, we choose to operate our crematory privately. This means it is used only for the loved ones of the families we serve.
Parrott Funeral Home & Crematory's state-of-the-art equipment is immaculately maintained and environmentally safe. We encourage personal inspection and are the only funeral home in the area with a special viewing room located next to our crematory to facilitate those who wish to be present for the start of the cremation process.
All Crematories are Not the Same
When making the decision to cremate, it's important to recognize that there are some very important things to consider when selecting the crematory you will entrust with the care of your loved one.
First, will the crematory provide truly personal, and prompt, care?
Here at Parrott Funeral Home, & Crematory we only serve one family at a time. This means your loved one is taken care of by us from the very moment we are entrusted to escort their body to the funeral home, until we meet with you to turn over their cremated remains to your family. There is no other body waiting for cremation while we are caring for your loved one. This is what we mean by "private" cremation service.
Second, Doesn't Your Family Deserve a Higher Level of Service?
We believe so. That's why we're committed to giving you and your loved one the kind of personal, respectful attention we would provide members of our own family.
You can be as involved in the cremation of your loved one as you wish to be. Since our crematory is located in our funeral home, your family can comfortably choose to have a private viewing prior to the cremation, or actually witness the initial stages of the cremation process.
