Burial Services 

Choosing Burial.

We provide professional and compassionate burial services in Westbury, NY with our experienced and licensed funeral directors.  When choosing burial for your loved one, you have many different options available to you.

We do not take a one-size-fits-all approach to our burial services, but rather we create the kind of services that families request—while ensuring that, regardless of the particulars, each burial service is intimate, affirming, and beautiful.

Some specific burial options include

  • Graveside funeral services, which can include involvement from a religious leader, masonic rites, military ritual, or readings from family members.
  • Immediate burials, for families who have a sudden and unexpected need to bury a loved one.
  • Visitation services, which can include religious services, followed by burial.  Visitation, or wake services, most often at the funeral home or place of worship, is a set time when loved ones gather together to pay their respects to the deceased, and offer condolences and support to the family.  It is common practice for the body of the deceased to be present in an open or closed casket, according to the family's wishes. The funeral is typically the next day, or later the same day, followed by the burial or cremation. 
Burying a loved one is always an emotional experience. The nature of the service itself can be modified in accordance with the deceased’s wishes, or with the preferences of the family.
