Cremation Information

We are the only private, locally-owned, and family-operated crematory in the Twin Lakes area.

Your Loved One Never Leaves Our Care

Your Loved One Never Leaves Our Care

Cremations are performed at our private, on premise crematory located inside Kirby and Family Funeral Home. Even though all funeral homes advertise cremation services, most people are shocked to learn that the cremation process itself is subcontracted out to third parties in unknown, distant locations. We think it is important that you know the difference between cremation and on-site cremation. We wish to emphasize that your loved one never leaves our direct care and never leaves our facilities.

Cremation FAQ's

1. Whose Ashes Am I Getting Back?

There's a difference between cremation and on-site cremation. Kirby and Family has owned and operated their own crematory for over 25 years. Your loved one never leaves our care. A licensed funeral director is always in charge. We utilize a 3 step process to track all of our cremations from beginning to end to ensure 100% assurance that your loved one is being taken care of and tracked properly through the process. We also do not perform cremations for other funeral homes.

2. There Must Be A Completed Death Certificate.

State law requires that a death certificate be completed by the Certifier (doctor, hospice nurse, coroner, etc.) before cremation can occur.

3. A Simple Gathering Can Help Families Heal.

Kirby and Family can help you design a simple service that can truly benefit your family. We have several plans designed to meet the needs of your family and friends while saving you money.

4. Beware of Hidden Charges.

Some funeral homes advertise low price, but tack on extra fees. Call us first and we'll give you a list of questions to ask other funeral homes.

5. At Kirby and Family, year in and year out, families surveyed have consistently rated our services as Excellent. Only Kirby and Family makes a 100% satisfaction money back guarantee.

Please note: We do not perform cremations for other funeral homes.
