Burial in a casket is the most common method of disposing of remains in the United States, although entombment also occurs. Cremation is increasingly selected because it can be less expensive and allows for the memorial service to be held at a more convenient time in the future when relatives and friends can come together.
A funeral service followed by cremation need not be any different from a funeral service followed by a burial. Usually, cremated remains are placed in urn before being committed to a final resting place. The urn may be buried, placed in an indoor or outdoor mausoleum or columbarium, or interred in a special urn garden that many cemeteries provide for cremated remains. The remains may also be scattered, according to state law.
There are a number of options available, including:
It really depends entirely on how you wish to commemorate a life. One of the advantages of cremation is that it provides you with increased flexibility when you make your funeral and cemetery arrangements. You might, for example, choose to have a funeral service before the cremation; a memorial service at the time of cremation or after the cremation with the urn present; or a committal service at the final disposition of cremated remains. Funeral or memorial services can be held in a place of worship, a funeral home or in a crematory chapel.
I had the unfortunate experience of losing both parents inside of 6 months, but Jonathan and the entire Devlin team made this process about as easy as it could have been. It never once felt transactional and was always 100% sincere. Heart felt sympathies to anyone experiencing the loss of a loved one, but as part of life and the process, I would recommend Devlin 1000 times over.
My mom just passed away under two weeks ago. My moms ashes and death certificate got back to me in less than a week after her passing. Her urn was absolutely beautiful. The guy Jonathan was always there to answer our questions and he answered them promptly. The lady at the front desk was so sweet. My grandma ended up wanting ashes and I didn’t realize I couldn’t get the lid off the urn Jonathan told me he would do it for me and even transfer the ashes for me! They are so sweet and kind and do excellent work. So glad I chose Devlin I’d recommend nd them to anyone!
Jonathan at Devlins, Cranberry, was exceptional. Very easy to work with and was very helpful and professional throughout the entire funeral. In fact, the entire staff was wonderful. The funeral home was a beautiful setting for our mother's service. We were happy we chose Devlin, Cranberry.
They are so kind..make a terribly stressful situation so much less stressful!
Great funeral home. The kindness they showed our family was exceptional.
Great staff. Always caring and helpful.
Devlin Funeral Home was the best to work with during tragic times. Very reasonably priced and treat you like family. They walk you through step by step and provide compassion during the whole process. They offer two different beautiful facilities with ample parking. Jonathan the director is very knowledgeable, accommodating, and a pleasure to work with during the difficult times.
Jonathan and the team were kind, supportive, and knowledgeable. They made a difficult time much less stressful.
Jonathan took such good care of our family during a difficult time. He was patient, thoughtful, thorough and caring, guiding us easily through decisions and options. I highly recommend Devlin and Jonathan.
I couldn't have been more impressed with Jonathan and his team at Devlin Funeral Home. He was extremely patient and caring during such a painful time for my family. He cared for us and made us feel as if we were his only priority. He answered every question we had and took time to make sure we understood every part of the process. Their facility was spotless and welcoming. Thank you Devlin for your care of my family.
My father passed away in Florida. He wanted to be buried with his second wife in Pittsburgh. Jonathan at Devlin handled everything for us with great care and compassion. I can’t say enough great things about this company and the people who work there. Thank you!
Losing a parent is never easy, especially after a very sudden and short battle with cancer. While we were not ready to say goodbye, Joe Mignella and the rest of the Devlin team made the process as easy on us as possible. Joe especially went above and beyond for our family and did everything he could to make sure my dad’s final goodbye was everything we wanted it to be. I can’t say thank you enough to him (and the team) for the kindness and patience they showed at such a difficult time.
Our families experience with Devlin has been nothing short of amazing! We worked with Joe, and he was able to answer any and all questions. Very professional yet personable at the same time. All of our needs were quickly met and addressed before during and after the use of this facility. I would highly recommend Devlin to anyone for this very sensitive time of life.
Joe Mignella took excellent care of our arrangements for my wife at Devlin's in the North Hills. His attention to detail was impeccable and was always considerate of the depth of our family's pain during a very difficult time. I'm very grateful that we chose Devlin's for my wife and would highly recommend Joe and his staff.
Jonathan is a special person to work with- he is able to handle the business end of all of this, run the show, and he genuinely cares. He doesn’t get frustrated when you can’t find a number or remember an appointment after being reminded. He just gets it and I can’t say enough about him.
I have passed your funeral home many times over the years and since my father's house was less than a mile away, I called when I needed service. It looked like a very nice funeral home from the outside and the inside was just as nice with professional service by Jonathan. He was very helpful and kind. They did a good job in preparing my father and set up a speedy transport of his body up to Brockport, NY for his funeral.
First rate services by all. Our family worked with Jonathan.
Jonathan made everything so easy for us and took care of notifying the VA and Social Security for us. He is extremely professional and a very caring person. We felt he went out of his way to make our grieving process more tolerable. I recommend Devlin Funeral Home.
Joe guided us through the process with ease and professionalism. We didn't have to worry about a thing and he answered any questions or concerns we had. He listened to what we as a family wanted.
Joe's compassionate approach meant the world to our family during the unexpected loss of my mother. He went out of his way to capture and preserve the personal touches and facets important to our family. Additionally, Joe's communication was stellar. His attention to detail and follow-through made our stressful period much more manageable. I highly recommend Devlin Funeral Home and, specifically, Joe for any grieving family.
I have attended other funerals of friends and family at Devlin's in the past. Joe was the funeral director for my father's funeral and now my mother's. Joe is extremely helpful and goes out of his way to make a difficult and uncomfortable situation as pleasant as possible. I am so thankful for his help and patience while I dealt with family issues. Joe was available every minute of the day by phone, text and email, including evenings and weekends. He was always pleasant and accommodating when responding to my numerous requests to change a word or add a comma to mom's obituary. Joe went out of his way to have a morning viewing and the service at Holy Family Manor where mom had been living for the past year and half. She had many friends and staff members there that cared for her. It was a blessing that all were able to say their goodbyes to mom. Unfortunately, Joe wasn't available for the day of the funeral; however, Kelsey filled in for him and did a wonderful job. Joe also arranged for a military burial for dad at the cemetery. Dad was cremated in 2012 because the family was short a plot due to my grandmother (dad's mom) selling a plot to my mom's family when my grandfather (mom's dad) had a heart attack and died. It was Joe's idea to put dad's ashes in the casket with mom. When I told dad he could be buried beside his mom, he was tickled pink! The military service at the gravesite is one I will never forget! Thank you, Joe, Kelsey and all at Devlin's for everything!
I don’t think there’s any way that my service could have been improved. Jonathan was caring, kind, compassionate, and professional from the first phone call. Ours was a very strange set of circumstances, and he and the staff handled with such grace and ease, and helped me every step of the way.
The entire family was very satisfied with the level of professionalism shown by the staff at every step. From the collection of the remains all the way through to the interment service, Devlin’s went over and above to make the process as easy and stress free as possible.
Everyone was extremely kind and respectful to our entire family. Thank you
Joe was fantastic and a great asset to Devlin. With all the complexities of bringing Mom home from Arizona and dealing with the family who also is out of town, he lead us with expertise, and care. We are very fortunate Mom and Dad chose Devlin long ago, and we worked with Joe today.
The entire staff was professional and caring! We couldn’t have asked for anything more! Thanks for your help in walking us through a difficult process.
My assessment is Devlin Funeral Home is an efficient, organized, and professional service. They made the stress of losing a loved one much easier!
I have a very large family. Jonathan was very patient in answering all of our questions. His prayers and condolences were heartfelt. He was knowledgeable and made me feel like everything was taken care of.
Thanks for making a difficult time a little less difficult.
Devlin’s is the funeral home my family has always used. However, after having been the primary family member in planning a funeral I can’t say enough good things about how kind and professional Johnathan was through every step of the process. Johnathan was there to answer every question, whatever time it was or whatever the question. I can’t say enough about how easy they made such a difficult time.
Our family has always come to Devlin and the staff makes a tough situation, easy and pleasant. Thanks for all you did for our family!
Our family has a long history with the Devlin family. Joe was extremely helpful and easy to work with, making a very difficult time for our family manageable. All other staff members were attentive and helpful.
Have used in the past and have had wonderful service.
My family has been using Devlin Funeral Home since my father had passed. Joe treated us like a family member and his kindness will always stay with us.
I will again use this funeral home in the future. I want to also express my gratitude and appreciation for Kelsey, she deserves an extra shout out, she did an excellent job being there for my family and I. She represents the gold standard, very caring and supportive. Thanks to all at Devlin. Everyone was super.
