People don't often understand why an onsite crematory is so important for your peace of mind. You can feel relieved that your loved one is in the care of our funeral home from beginning to end, and we ensure that the cremation process is handled with the highest standards, dignity, and professionalism.


Some people don’t know this, but many funeral homes actually hire third party crematories, which are typically located in a warehouse district or other industrial-type areas . These funeral homes transfer your loved one to these outside cremation services and leave them for days or weeks until the cremation occurs. Everything might end up being just fine, but it’s impossible for them to promise you it will be. Unless a funeral director/licensed crematory operator is able to manage and supervise a cremation from start to finish, they simply can’t know the process was done correctly and ethically.

At Riddle Funeral Home, we take pride that our funeral directors have taken advanced state accredited classes to also become Certified Crematory Operators.  

That’s what sets us apart. We have our own crematory, so all your services are managed and performed by our funeral directors/crematory operators from beginning to end. We provide a system of checks and balances to ensure the cremated remains returned to you are those of your loved one. We oversee the entire process, and your loved one never leaves our care. That is our promise to you.

We hope this assurance will be a huge comfort to you at a time when there are so many considerations you have and decisions you need to make.
