Choosing a Service Option

Burial Options & Personalization

A service most often chosen is the traditional funeral that includes pallbearers, visitation, and memorial service. John L. Ziegenhein & Sons Funeral Home will transport the casket to the funeral location and cemetery for a burial or entombment.

This option can cost more than other options being that they consist of many details. There is a wide variety of services that include a casket, flowers, embalming, dressing, room rentals and extra vehicles to transport family members. Cemetery plots or crypt are extra options, but we can help with everything you need.

Important Service Details to Think About:

  1. Casket selection
  2. Transfer of the deceased to our funeral home. Call us anytime, day or night. We have staff on duty 24/7 and we can help.
  3. Dressing, cosmetology and other care of the deceased
  4. Professional support and administrative staff assistance. We’ve got answers, checklists and information to help.
  5. Obituary information
  6. Memory tables, bulletin boards and videos
  7. Selecting the best fit for a visitation room and/or service
  8. Utility car
  9. Special music
  10. Registry book
  11. Memorial folders or prayer cards
  12. Acknowledgment cards
  13. You may want to have a special clergy or another family friend conduct the service. Family members often take part by giving a reading, singing or helping the clergy. It’s all part of celebrating a life well lived and a person well loved.

Why the Traditional Service is So Popular

A traditional service for burial, entombment or cremation is a way to get family, friends and associates together to remember, grieve−and celebrate a life well lived. Whatever service style you prefer, it is the beginning of closure; it is the emotional side of accepting that someone we love is gone.

Direct Burial - You may prefer to have the burial shortly after death. We offer simple containers, and because there is no viewing or visitation, no embalming is required. You choose whether to have a memorial service. Costs include the basic service fee as well as transportation and care of the body, the purchase of a casket or burial container and a cemetery plot or crypt.

Cremation - John L. Ziegenhein & Sons believes you should have the opportunity to choose from all the service options available. Today, more people are considering cremation as an alternative to customary earth burial--after the opportunity to say good-bye and to share grief with family and friends. Cremation is truly a personal decision.

We can tailor any cremation service to meet your personal needs:

Traditional visitation and funeral ceremony followed by cremation
Funeral ceremony with no visitation, followed by cremation
Funeral visitation with no ceremony, followed by cremation
Immediate cremation, with a memorial service and the urn present
Immediate cremation with no services
Final care of the cremains--burial, scattering, placing in an urn or other memorialization.
