We believe in the traditional funeral because it best serves the needs of family and friends. The traditional service is a meaningful expression for the family, and it gives friends and associates an opportunity to offer their tributes.
In this option, the body is buried shortly after death, usually in a simple container. No viewing or visitation is involved, so no embalming is necessary. Direct burial usually costs less than the "traditional," full-service funeral.
Florida law does not require embalming, however, embalming will be necessary if you select certain funeral arrangements. If you do not want embalming, you can choose arrangements that do not require it.
Many people feel that ceremonies and the actual cremation process should be held at different sites. Because of this, our crematory is close but not located on the same property as our funeral home. We also have a small chapel at our cremation facility that may be used for ceremonies or viewings.
R. Lee Williams & Son Funeral Home & Crematory also helps you plan a memorial service. This is the same as a traditional service, except the body is not present for the visitation or the funeral.
This option is designed for those who want a ground burial or interment of remains with a service only at the cemetery. Itemized options may be selected at the family's discretion.
