Burial and Cremation Information
For many families, a burial and/or a cremation will be important parts of a final farewell to their loved one.
Burkin Svendsens Funerals can assist you in making arrangements to purchase a new gravesite or a memorial site, or alternatively to use an existing one at any cemetery or memorial park.
We are experienced in assisting families who require an above ground burial, such as in a crypt, vault or mausoleum space. We are also experienced in assisting families who require special cremation arrangements to meet their cultural needs.
Once you have decided to hold a burial or a cremation, there are a few other decisions that will need to be made. Our funeral directors will help you tailor all of the details so that the final arrangements suit your every need.
