Cremation Services

A direct cremation is inherently the most manageable funeral option, where the cremation takes place in the days immediately following the passing, without a viewing or funeral service beforehand.

When we refer to the process of making arrangements, we are generally looking for you to provide some basic information for the initial purpose of coordinating transfer into our care and transportation to our facilities.

How to make arrangements

You can make arrangements online or over the phone at any time — our care team is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

  • To make arrangements online in under 15 minutes, complete the form located on the Make Arrangements page.
  • If you have questions or prefer to make the initial arrangements over the phone, don’t hesitate to reach out to our care team for assistance at 1-303-963-5836.
  • Alternatively, you can use our online arrangements tool to make arrangements and pay online today. Click Here to make arrangements and pay online.

Transfer of care and transportation logistics

Once you have completed the arrangements form, you must notify the pickup facility to authorize transfer into our care. We will then arrange for pickup and transportation to our facilities.

  • If your loved one is in a coroner’s office or hospital, this will be during business hours.
  • If they’re in a private residence or nursing home this will be immediate.

Optionally, you may publish an obituary for public notification

As an optional benefit, we welcome you to commemorate the life of your loved one and let others know when and where services will be held by publishing an obituary on our website.


Our direct cremation packages were built to give you comfort in knowing that you’ve got everything you should ever need, in addition to around-the-clock assistance from our fully-licensed care team along the way.
