Combining Dignity & Affordability
Whether you are preplanning for yourself or choosing for a loved one, a casket selection is a very personal decision and an expression of your feelings. A casket that reflects the personality and taste of your loved one can be your final tribute to their life. Southern Heritage Funeral Home and Crematory understands these needs and offers a wide variety of caskets that can help you make your decision.
Metal caskets -- including those made from bronze, copper, stainless steel and steel -- are known for their unique finishes. Bronze and copper are among the most durable and beautiful of metals; both are naturally non-rusting. Stainless and carbon steel caskets come in a variety of grades, gauges, styles and finishes.
Hardwood caskets include a variety of species: mahogany, walnut, cherry, maple, oak, pecan, poplar, and pine. These caskets are the choice of families who appreciate and cherish the qualities of natural wood. The warmth, beauty and personality it brings to fine furniture ideally suited it for the construction of quality caskets.
To help you honor your loved one in a unique and personal way, Southern Heritage Funeral Home and Crematory offers a variety of interior options. Beige, crepe interiors are the standard for many caskets; however, other colors and fabrics are available. In addition, you can also choose motifs that reflect various lifestyles, interests and service affiliations.
Deciding what will be done with cremated remains may help you decide what type of urn to select. An urn can serve as an important focal point at a funeral or memorial service. Afterward, it can be buried in a family plot at a cemetery, placed in a niche at a mausoleum, or kept in the home. In addition, there are urn styles that are especially appropriate when scattering is chosen. Though most people find it easier to select an urn at the same time as other funeral or memorial arrangements are made, an urn can also be purchased at a later time. Simply contact your funeral director.
When you choose an urn, you are creating a permanent memorial, one that reflects your loved one’s character and your personal taste. That’s why you are encouraged to take time to learn about the different materials and designs available.
