The directors at Providence Funeral Homes & Crematorium can help you with all your personal arrangement choices. We have a wide selection of urns, caskets, markers, keepsakes and accessories on these pages to choose from.
When a person dies the family may arrange to cremate the deceased’s body. The cremated remains are placed in a permanent container, or Urn, before being committed to a final resting place.
Urns may be constructed from a variety of materials including: hardwoods like oak, cherry and mahogany; metals like bronze, copper, brass and pewter; or stone like granite, marble or cultured marble.
There are three types of caskets commonly used these days. They are constructed of materials like hardwood, cloth covered wood and metal.
Hardwood and cloth covered caskets are suitable for cremation. But, metal is not. A popular choice is a hardwood casket suitable for burial and cremation ceremonies held before cremation or burial takes place. Minimum containers made of plywood are also available.
There are a wide variety of accessories and keepsakes, available on these pages to meet your preferences and budget.
We will be glad to show them to you when you are making your arrangements.
Please feel free to ask us about specific items as we are here to answer any questions you may have.
Historically grave markers go back thousands of years. Greeks and Romans used stone monuments to honour the dead and prevent graves from being disturbed.
Burial markers today are constructed of granite, metal, or composite materials where accepted. The names of family are often added to a marker over the years, so that one marker may chronicle the passing of an entire family, over decades.
