Cremation Services

We make it personal.

Cremation offers families a variety of options. From elaborate and traditional to dignified and simple, cremation is an option which allows for great flexibility in, style of service, time of service, price and preference for final resting place.

The caring providers at Magnolia Chapel Funeral Home in Tuscaloosa Alabama believe that every life is unique.  Each family should be able to choose the type of service that is the most meaningful to them. 

Contrary to what most people believe, cremation does not limit what can be done when it comes to a funeral or burial service in fact provides more options for a Memorial Service for your Tuscaloosa loved one. The options for ceremonies prior to or following the cremation can include the selection of a casket or an urn, visitation with the body present (or memorial visitation where the urn is the focal point), a display of photographs or personal effects and awards, the location of the funeral ceremony and selection of music. A lovely funeral service followed by cremation need be no different than a funeral service followed by ground burial.

Following the funeral service and cremation services, the cremated remains are usually placed in an urn before being committed to a final resting place. The cremation urn may be interred in an existing family burial plot, interred in a special cremation section at a cemetery or placed in an indoor or outdoor cemetery columbarium.

Scattering cremated remains may be done at a designated place on land or water in accordance with state and local laws. Scattering cremated remains on someone's private property requires the permission of the property own. It is not recommended to scatter on your personal property (should your home be sold) or on public property where others may come into contact with the cremated remains. For many people, it is important to have a permanent place to go to visit. This allows family and friends the ability to remember and celebrate a life that has been lived and touched others.  If you have any questions do not hesitate to contact us or visit us. Our Tuscaloosa cremation services team in Tuscaloosa are ready to answer your questions and walk you through the cremation services process.
