Celebration of Life Center
Services - Cremation
For the convenience of the families that desire cremation we have designed a few cremation options around the most requested types of cremation services. They are designed to assist you and your family when planning final disposition by cremation.
The local crematory requires the use of an alternative container for handling and placement of a deceased person at the crematory. We offer a choice as to the type of cremation container you would like to be used. These range from the most simple container to those that more closely resemble a very simple casket. We also have a selection of Urns that may be used for final disposition. You will find all of these prices within the General Price List.
- Traditional Funeral Service with cremation following the service.
- Funeral Home Chapel/Church memorial service without the body present at the service.

Our Direct Cremation charge does not include coordinating a memorial service with the church, providing cash advance items on the family's behalf, obituary to newspaper, or storage of ashes after the cremation. If you want to arrange a direct cremation, you can use an alternative container. Alternative containers encase the body and can be made of materials like fiberboard or composition materials, with or without an outside covering. The containers we provide are constructed of a wood base cardboard shell.
"Minnesota state law requires the medical examiner to investigate any death where the body of the deceased is to be cremated....as a result funeral directors are required to call the Ramsey County Medical Examiner’s office for prior approval on all cremations." If a delay is experienced in receiving approval the funeral home will charge $75.00 per day to care for the deceased until permission is received.
