Our Cremation Packages
Blue Ridge Funeral Service understands that losing someone you love is one of the most difficult things you experience in your lifetime, and we are here to help reduce as much stress and worry as we can so that you can focus on the grieving and healing process.
Blue Ridge Funeral Home offers direct funeral services and affordable memorial services to the families of Mars Hill.
If you and your family have decided to choose between direct funeral services and affordable memorial services, then we recommend you read the pages below to learn about the options you have with us.
The traditional cremation service option is intended to serve much in the way a traditional funeral would with the exception that the graveside portion is replaced with cremation. This critical difference eliminates much of the costs involved in a traditional funeral while still preserving much of the healing and memorial process served by a traditional visitation and funeral service.
In contrast, the cremation service with memorial service option is a more modern take on the traditional funeral, where the cremation happens immediately and a memorial service is planned for a later date. The major advantage to this option is that it allows time to coordinate scheduling with family and friends to avoid the rush of finding time off work and travel options. Additionally, since this option avoids the traditional casketed viewing and embalming, the cost tends to be even lower as the fees are simply divided between the crematory cost, the memorial service and the administration of the required paperwork.
We are caring cremation service experts who promise each family we serve the highest level of:
Courteous, professional service. Our dedicated staff will take care of all details, including prompt filing of required permits and notifications. Accurate completion of these essential documents not only ensures their acceptance by local or state agencies; it guarantees your loved one's cremation will not be delayed.
Respectful care of the deceased and timely completion of cremation process. Your loved one will be attended to by certified crematory operators; each of whom has been trained to provide both compassionate care for the deceased, and conscientious attention to detail throughout the cremation process.
Safekeeping and prompt return of cremated remains. We know it's important for the families we serve to know their loved one will be coming home as soon as possible. That's why we promise to notify you as soon as their ashes become available, and safeguard their urn until the time you are ready to receive them.
A memorial service to celebrate the life of the deceased. There are many advantages to taking some time to remember the life lived, share stories and laugh about all of the memories. Our team can help you plan a fitting memorial service with or without the cremation urn present, at our facility or in a place of your choosing.
