Burial & MEMORIAL ServiceS

Our rituals surrounding death are essential in our attempts to understand our existence, and the desire to be remembered is within all our hearts. Memorial services offer an opportunity to celebrate the life of a loved one who has left us and are also very important for helping those who remain to continue on. They provide a natural stimulation to transition from the grieving process to remembrance among a positive support network of family and friend relationships.

At Affordable Cremations of Winston, we allow grieving families to plan the perfect memorial service to suit the wishes of the deceased. In many instances, a traditional burial service involves a visitation period, which is followed by a funeral service.  The casket is often present at each of these events, and may be displayed open or closed. 

If you have any special requests, Affordable Cremations of Winston makes it simple to develop a tailored service. Our experienced staff will remain by your side throughout each phase of the planning process to ensure your ultimate peace of mind. Have no doubt, we take immense pride in assisting families throughout Lexington, NC and all the surrounding communities.

Cremation is an increasingly popular option for many people, serving as an alternative to burial. Reasons for preferring cremation vary.
