Upon notification of the passing of a loved one, Hughes Funeral Alternatives, LLC will perform the following:

1. Respond

We will immediately respond, no matter the time of day, and bring your loved one into our care.

2.  Coordinate

We will coordinate a time to meet with your family. It is during this process that our Funeral Director will:

  • 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.

3.  Document

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.

4.  Deliver

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).
