Understanding Burial

People have been formally buried for many years as a means of showing respect. Burial is also done for health reasons and to fulfill religious prescriptions. The roots of modern embalming began during the Civil War as a practical way to meet the demand of families who requested that their loved ones be returned home for interment in family plots or on the family farm.

Several cemeteries are available throughout the Gallatin Valley. We work with all cemeteries and arrange for burials and entombments on a world-wide basis. For qualified veterans and family members, we can arrange burials in any National Cemetery. We welcome any questions about earth burial, entombment, or burial in a National Cemetery.
