Cremation Packages

Cremation planning can be made for immediate need or for advanced funeral planning. Palmer Funeral Homes owns and operates our private crematory. Your loved one will be in our care during the cremation process, instead of using a third-party crematory. We, the Palmer staff, are here to answer your questions and to assist you before, during and after the loss of your loved one. If you call after regular business hours, our answering service will take a message and a director will call you back within 20 minutes. You can reach Palmer Funeral Homes at 574-289-2848
