At Crawford / Ray we are honored to offer every family alternative choices to traditional burial. We proudly serve Canton, Clyde, Waynesville, Maggie Valley, Lake Junaluska and all surrounding areas of Haywood County. We are also honored to serve families living in Buncombe, Jackson,Macon,Madison and Swain County.
Many families which we serve prefer a simple direct cremation for their loved one and we respect this choice and honor this decision with dignity and respect. Our simple direct cremation is $895.00. There are also other choices for families which can be planning a meaningful memorial service, an uplifting celebration of life or a gathering of family and friends. Services may be held in our funeral home chapel, in our historic 100 year old country church, The Grove, a church sanctuary or even a special meaningful location of one’s choice. We also have a beautiful historic restored building, The Milltown Place, which can be used for a gathering of friends or even a reception following a service. It is important to us and our staff that the decision that each family makes is appropriate for you and your loved one. All decisions we believe are made from one’s heart and we are here to help each one through this difficult time of loss just as if you were a member of our family.
We have available several choices of cremation urns and also keepsake jewelry and we are dedicated to helping each family find the right selection for their family. Sometimes even the perfect urn can be made from something special that once belonged to a loved one.
The cremation process as we know it today began over 100 years ago and has become a choice that many families have chosen today and we are indeed honored to help assist each family with their personal choice. We at Crawford / Ray believe that all cremation choices should be affordable for every family and each family be blessed with peace in their hearts when making these final decisions.
Let us always remember, “All things beautiful will last forever, kept within sweet memory.”
