Burial Options

Burial is a popular method of disposition for various reasons. For many, religion dictates that this method be chosen. Numerous families select burial because they enjoy the concept of a final resting place; a location at which they may regularly visit their loved one. Continuance of familial tradition is another reason. In most cases, generations of families have chosen burial as the tribute for their loved ones. You may prefer to choose this same option for any or all of these reasons or those unique to your situation. We are here to support your selection.

Whether the method is entombment or interment, at Dudley Funeral Homes we believe that a burial funeral ceremony is a hallowed and special tribute, which must honor the memory of your loved one.

  • Generally a member of the clergy conducts a service of remembrance. The family is encouraged to participate in the planning of the service as well.
