Today’s traditional funeral is one of recognition of a life lived; it is an opportunity for friends and family to gather together to support one another, express sympathy, and grieve. Religious and local customs are an important part of the traditional funeral. At McMillan-Small, we realize that our area has become a melting pot of people from all areas of the country, all walks of life, and all different backgrounds. We are prepared and dedicated to assisting all who honor us with their service in meeting the wishes of those we serve.
Traditional funeral services include church services (we are non-sectarian), services in our Chapel, graveside services, visitation, burial, entombment, and transportation to other locations (even states). Common traditional services generally include one or a combination of the following:
- Church or chapel service, with visitation the day before
- Church or chapel service, with visitation the same day as the funeral
- Graveside/tombside funeral service, with visitation the day before
- Graveside/tombside funeral service, with visitation the same day as the funeral
- Private burial with memorial service at a church or our chapel
