Did you know that cremation has surpassed burial as the most popular choice for laying a loved one to rest? This is in part because cremation services in Sugar Land, TX have evolved to offer our clients a highly personalized experience with many choices to help you create the ideal memorial. At Davis Greenlawn Funeral Chapels and Cemeteries, we’ve come up with a list of ways to help you get the most out of our cremation services program.
A Flexible Schedule
One of the biggest advantages of choosing cremation is that you get to set your own schedule in a way that’s impossible with burial. It’s common for our clients to call us, setting a cremation in motion only days after the passing. But after they take the ashes home, they can plan a memorial service at our facilities or independently weeks or even months after, once they’ve managed to get all the attendees to commit to a date.
The classic brass or ceramic urns you might remember are still available and as iconically beautiful as ever. But for clients who want a new look, we offer hundreds of unique artisan designs that make the perfect resting place for a loved one. Not only can they be personalized with inscriptions, but these urns are designed with spill-proof lids. No more mishaps with ashes when you choose one of our modern urns.
Environmentally Friendly Options
If you’d like a final resting place for your loved one that gives a boost to the environment, we offer a selection of urns and vaults made from recycled or sustainable materials. We also offer a biodegradable urn that releases a tree seed when buried, transforming your loved one’s ashes into a powerful tree. For burial at sea, a unique choice is coral balls, which create a miniature ecosystem on which coral and other sea life will attach.
Celebrations of Life
Our cremation packages are designed to be as involved as you want them to be, and that includes a full memorial at our funeral chapels. These memorials can be arranged before or after the cremation, with rental caskets available for pre-cremation services. This allows you and your family to celebrate the life of the deceased in the same dignified and passionate way you would at a funeral before a burial ceremony.
Unique Choices for Ashes
If you want a personalized tribute to your loved one, we can put you in touch with a company that will transform their ashes into a unique form. This can include compressing the ashes into diamonds that can be worn as jewelry, for a permanent tribute. Ashes can also be incorporated into the gunpowder of fireworks, into paints or ink for creating art, or even into tattoo ink so you’ll always carry a piece of them with you.
