Upon notification of the passing of a loved one, Hughes Funeral Alternatives, LLC will perform the following:
We will immediately respond, no matter the time of day, and bring your loved one into our care.
We will coordinate a time to meet with your family. It is during this process that our Funeral Director will:
Arrange and coordinate a funeral, memorial service, or burial of the urn
Present and satisfy all legal documentation pertaining to the cremation
Compose an obituary that will appear on our website
Complete the death certificate
Present options such as an engraved urn, cremation jewelry, flowers, or a memorial slideshow
*This meeting can take place over the phone or online.
Once all documentation and authorizations have been completed, the flameless cremation process will take place at our on-site facility. Your loved one will never leave our care.
We will deliver the urn to your family’s desired location (church, cemetery, residence, etc.).
Along with these services, Hughes Funeral Alternatives will notify social security of your loved one’s passing and deliver the certified copies of the death certificate(s).
We also specialize in anatomical donation to one of three medical schools located in the St. Louis area.
Flameless cremation or anatomical donation services can be pre-arranged, please contact us for more details.
