Fifty years ago, only a tiny fraction of Americans – 3.6% – chose cremation. Now, that number hovers right around 50% and is increasing rapidly every year. Egizi Funeral Home has been serving Turnersville families for more than 50 years, and our staff has certainly noticed more families choosing cremation over that time.

We’ve also noticed that even though cremation is more popular than ever, it’s common for people to still have questions about it. Whether your family is in the Turnersville area or beyond, we have experienced teams who are ready to inform you about your many cremation memorialization options with Egizi Funeral Home.

One of the main concerns we hear – and really a major misconception – is that when you choose cremation, you can’t have a service. Families want to tell the story of their loved one’s life, and pay tribute in a meaningful way. The good news is that the Egizi Funeral Home team provides many avenues to do so!

As with traditional burials, we offer a family choosing cremation a variety of choices to celebrate their loved one. We’re here to help you create any or all of the following:

  • visitation, reception, servicecatered gathering, or graveside burial.
  • Vaults, caskets, and urns that bear emblems and engravings reflecting religious affiliation, special interests, and/or military or civic service.
  • Personalized memorials that highlight your loved one’s interests, hobbies, accomplishments, personality, as well as faith and cultural traditions.
  • Elements such as flowers, music, readings, and even a viewing.

We also offer unique Signature Services at no additional cost to make your service special, including an annual remembrance program and the option for online memorial tributes.

Egizi Funeral Home gives added peace of mind to those choosing cremation, as we will go with your loved one to the crematory and observe the process from beginning to end. We are also members of several well-known cremation organizations to ensure your loved one is treated with dignity and respect.

Whether you choose traditional burial or cremation, our professional team is here to explain every detail and describe how a final farewell can be personalized to fit your needs. Simple details and personal touches make for a deeply meaningful memorial service families will never forget. Don’t hesitate to reach out to us today to learn more.
