Cremation is a growing choice in our country and one that is widely accepted within many religions. When a body is cremated in our crematory, it is reduced to its natural elements, quickly and without chemicals. A variety of disposition options are available for those who choose cremation, including ground burial, cremation benches, urns, cremation niches, columbariums and scattering gardens.
Mountain View funeral Home and cemetery operates our own crematory inside our facility. Your loved one never leaves our care during the entire process, we keep your family member on site the entire time.
