Direct Cremation


A Direct Cremation includes transfer of deceased from place of death, refrigeration of remains, local transportation to crematory, necessary services of staff and authorizations. When a green cremation is selected an alternative container is made of paper with a solid wood bottom. The container encases the body and is not made of made of materials like fiberboard or composition materials that may contain synthetic glues and metal components

Olson & Parent Funeral Home has always included the cremation fee at Swan Point Cemetery within our one fee of $1,845.00. This fee does not include any attendant rites or ceremonies or cash advance items, such as certified copies of death certificates.

A direct cremation service also includes a biodegradable urn if you do not choose an urn from our collection. 

Olson & Parent Funeral Home considers a cremation to be “green” when the body is not embalmed before the cremation, the cremation container is made from natural components, and certified green urns are available. 

As of May 1, 2019, when a family chooses a green cremation, a small tree will be given to the family in memory of their loved one. It has been determined, during the trees lifetime it will offset the pollution generated by the one cremation.
