Service Offerings

Marion Nelson Funeral Home has been serving families for over 50 years. We are committed to you and your personal preference as we work together to design services just the way you want them. Our experience has shown us that most families select one of the following services, each of which can be personalized to meet your wishes.

TRADITIONAL FUNERAL CEREMONY WITH VISITATION AND BURIAL

This is the most commonly selected service that we offer and includes services of funeral director and staff for coordinating and directing of the funeral, filing of legal documents and other administrative needs to complete the arrangements, removal of the deceased from place of death, embalming and preparation of the deceased for ceremonies, use of facilities and staff for visitation and ceremony, automotive equipment, including funeral coach and service vehicle.

GRAVESIDE FUNERAL CEREMONY

This selection includes everything listed above under traditional funeral ceremony including evening visitation followed by graveside funeral ceremony instead of services at the funeral home or church.

CREMATION CHOICES

Cremation provides an alternative to burial yet still allows the option of visitation and ceremony should they be selected. Options for final disposition of the cremated remains include burial in a family plot at a cemetery, scattering, or kept at home by the family.

CREMATION WITH FUNERAL CEREMONY
This selection includes everything listed above under Traditional Funeral Ceremony including visitation and ceremony at the funeral home or church followed by cremation.

CREMATION WITH A MEMORIAL SERVICE
This selection provides for cremation, but offers a choice of a memorial ceremony or visitation at the funeral home, church, or other location, usually held after the cremation process.

DIRECT CREMATION
This is the simplest form of disposition and generally does not include any ceremonies or rites. It may take place only after obtaining a signed death certificate and authorizations. In Florida there is a forty-eight hour waiting period after the time of death before cremation can take place since cremation is irreversible.

OUT OF TOWN TRANSFER

Our professional staff is available to take care of any of your out of town needs. If a family member dies out of town and your plans are for a ceremony to be held in our area, we will ensure that all details managed in a timely fashion. If a loved one dies in our area and plans are for ceremony and burial out of state, then we will act as your agent to make those arrangements happen.
