Unity Funeral Services is a full-service funeral establishment offering personal, distinctive, and affordable services to families of all backgrounds. Listed below is an outline of some of the services we offer.
Traditional funeral services are established by one's cultural or religious customs. These services include a time for families and friends to gather for a visitation or viewing. These services include a funeral at the funeral home or at a church, with the casketed remains present. A procession to a cemetery, or place of final disposition, follows the funeral service. Traditional funeral services are usually public, but can be private.
Graveside services are held at the site of burial. These services consist of scripture readings, a eulogy, poetry, and music, and may be accompanied by a visitation or viewing the evening before. A graveside service is a sensible alternative for small services.
Memorial services are conducted when the deceased is not present. These services may take place anywhere the family desires. This is an opportunity to remember your loved one through fellowship with friends and family.

Primary Option for Cremation
Cremation does not alter the purpose of a visitation and/or a funeral service. These rites benefit the living, to help families find support during their bereavement, and to honor the final wishes of the deceased.
What is cremation?
Cremation is a process of preparing human remains for final disposition. It is a technical heating process which reduces the remains to its basic elements, primarily bone particles and fragments, which are referred to cremated remains. The reduction takes place through heat in a cremation chamber. The cremated remains are then placed into a temporary receptacle or an urn.
