Complete Funeral Services
Traditionally, the funeral will be a Complete Funeral Service. This includes a family or public viewing of the deceased. Following this will be a service, typically in the church or at the funeral home. This would be followed by earth or above ground burial of the casketed remains. Caskets selected may cost from several hundred dollars to several thousand dollars depending on the material the casket is constructed of. Many cemeteries require that a minimum grave liner be used to encase the casket when buried. These minimum liners are constructed of concrete and are designed to hold the weight of the earth, maintaining the cemetery property. A sealed vault may also be used. The vaults are also constructed of concrete or steel and are designed to not only protect the gravesite, but are manufactured with inner liners that not only restrict the entrance of graveside elements (water and earth) but increase the strength of the vault.
At Ginn Funeral Home, we encourage families to create very personalized services. It is important to acknowledge that a life that has been lived and to offer to the community a way in which to celebrate that life. By offering services and memorialization features that are personal and special, a unique life can be remembered and honored in an individualized way that is comforting to the family and friends.
