Traditional Burial


Affinity Memorial Chapel offers many different services. Our training and experience have prepared us to help, to reassure, and to understand when a family faces the loss of a loved one. We are here to replace confusion with calm, doubts with certainty, and questions with answers. At Affinity Memorial Chapel one finds a quiet gentleness in an atmosphere of dignity, efficiency, and trust. We believe your service choice is a very personal decision. We pride ourselves on how to explain the options available, and then allow you to make your own decisions.

Among the choices you'll need to make is whether you want one of these basic types of funerals, or something in between.

This type of funeral, often referred to by funeral providers as a "traditional" funeral, usually includes a viewing or visitation and formal funeral service, use of a hearse to transport the body to the funeral site and cemetery, and burial, entombment or cremation of the remains. It is generally the most expensive type of funeral. In addition to the funeral home's basic services fee, costs often include embalming and dressing the body; rental of the funeral home for the viewing or service; and use of vehicles to transport the family if they do not use their own. The costs of a casket, cemetery plots or crypt and other funeral goods and services must be factored in.

A traditional service for burial, entombment or cremation, is usually the service of choice. At Affinity Memorial Chapel we believe in the traditional funeral, because it often serves the needs of family and friends.

The traditional funeral service include the following:

  • Casket 
  • Transfer of the deceased to the funeral home 
  • Embalming 
  • Dressing, cosmetology and other care of the deceased 
  • Professional support and administrative staff assistance 
  • Use of visitation rooms 
  • General use of the facilities for the service and arrangements 
  • Funeral service 
  • Use of funeral coach 
  • Limousine 
  • Utility car 
  • Register book 
  • Acknowledgment cards 
  • Programs

The traditional service is a meaningful expression for the family, and it gives friends and associates an opportunity to offer their tributes in the way of flowers or memorials to churches or organizations.

Generally, a member of the clergy or other person chosen by the family conducts a service of remembrance. We encourage the active participation of the family in helping plan this part of the service. Many times family members take part by giving a reading, singing or assisting the clergy.
