Funerals serve an important purpose: they allow us to recognize a life that was lived and acknowledge that the life has come to an end. Funerals exist for the living, for people who have suffered the loss of a loved one.
We understand that every family is different and influences such as religious and cultural traditions, cost concerns and personal preferences make each funeral as unique as the person who is being honored.
Our funeral directors will discuss the many options and details that make each of our services a personal lasting tribute to your loved one.
Cremation is an option families are choosing as part of their funeral plans and the reasons people give for choosing cremation vary. Prior to cremation, your family may choose to have a visitation and a funeral service with your loved one present.
Our caring staff will explain cremation caskets and cremation rental caskets for those families choosing to have a viewing followed by cremation.
We are proud to have the only on-site crematorium in Nassau County, so you may feel comforted knowing your loved one will stay in our care and custody.
Oxley-Heard serves more veterans than any other funeral home in the area. We understand your needs particularly when it comes to preserving tradition and obtaining the burial benefits you’re entitled to.
Learn more about veteran’s benefits by calling us at 904-261-3644 for more information.
Most of us plan ahead in life. We plan for our wedding, family vacations, our children’s education and other significant expected life events. We also plan for the unexpected events of life by purchasing home, life and auto insurance.
Understanding the benefits of planning your own funeral is a very thoughtful decision to consider. It allows for your wishes to be known and reduces stress for friends and family at an already emotional time.
Please call us to set up an appointment to discuss the final wishes for you or your loved one.
