Cremation is becoming more popular in the recent years.  Michigan cremation has increased, however there are many options when deciding on cremation.  Immediate cremation without viewing is the minimal option.  A second option is where visitation can be held with a viewing of the deceased and then the cremation.  In Michigan cremation has to be through a licensed funeral home, unlike most states.  Michigan funeral homes cannot own a cremation facility.  After the cremation is completed various items can be purchased for keepsakes of the deceased, including small keepsake urns, jewelry, candles and customized urns with engravings.  A complete selection is available in our selection room and catalogues upon request. There is no cremation society fees when arranging for a cremation service at the Marshall Funeral Home.
