Woodlawn offers cremation in Houston, TX, assisting with everything from authorization to transportation, to meeting the wishes of the family/decedent (including what clothing/items to include in the cremation casket). Cremation urns are available for those who prefer to keep a loved one’s remains or ashes. We offer traditional cremation services, which are much like a traditional funeral; memorial gatherings after cremation; and direct cremation with the completion of all paperwork and transportation.
Whether you prefer a more traditional memorial service or something more contemporary, like a celebration-of-life, we can accommodate your needs. We can arrange for a location, such as our funeral home in Houston, or a church or community hall. Our staff can assist in selecting readings, music, and eulogies as well. From personal values to religious doctrines, to providing a service that combines aspects of a funeral with telling the story of the deceased, our staff is capable and flexible, always looking to ensure the process is unique and individual.
Specialty Funeral Services
We plan and implement veterans’ burial services. Our veteran services include completing necessary paperwork and obtaining a burial flag, a headstone/marker, and a Presidential Memorial Certificate. Our staff can arrange for burial service in a National or State Veterans Administration Cemetery as well.
For those who opt for cremation, we can arrange for placement in a local cemetery or for ash scattering. We’re familiar with local rules and regulations and the permissions, permits, and restrictions of scattering ashes, whether on land or at sea. The cremation cost is highly variable and depends on many factors. Memorialization services include personalized memorial stationery and online memorials to help preserve your loved one’s legacy and pay tribute to their memory.
