The choice of minimal service cremation is not for everyone. Before contracting our services, understand that Pillar Cremation is a direct disposition provider, not a funeral home. We do not provide cremations with a viewing. We reserve the right to refuse service if there are issues -- family, legal, geographic, or otherwise -- that require the time and expertise of a professional funeral director. In these instances, a traditional funeral home will be recommended to you. Unlike memorial societies, there are no membership fees charged to access our services. If a family decides to change funeral providers after the remains have been transported to our facility, a removal charge of $345 will apply. All payments are required at time of service.
