At Cromes-Edwards Funeral Home & Crematory, Inc., our family has been serving yours since 1939. We are committed to you and your personal preferences as we work together to design traditional or cremation funeral services to suit your needs. Our experience has shown us that most families select one of the following services, each of which can be personalized to meet your wishes. Please select one of the following for more information on that particular service.
The Graveside Funeral Service (or Direct Burial) includes a funeral services at the grave site only rather than at the funeral home, church, or other location. The funeral director and clergy will often meet the family at the graveside and a brief committal service will take place.
This type of service is more cost effective and less formal but can include a separate visitation period at the Funeral Home if desired by the family.
With the recent addition of the Cromes-Edwards Funeral Home "Crematory", we can now offer you a much lower cost alternative to the Traditional Funeral Service at an even greater savings. Our own on-site facility will afford us the opportunity to offer this alternative at a greater cost savings to you than before. Plus you will have full peace of mind knowing your loved one will never leave our care and will always be treated with the dignity and respect that you have entrusted to us. No other funeral care provider in Sidney can make that claim and guarantee.
Cremation provides an alternative to traditional funeral services yet still allows the option of visitation and funeral services should they be selected. Options for the ashes of the cremated human remains include earth burial on the family plot, scattering of the ashes, placement in an urn, or to be placed in a columbarium niche or other location.
