Additional Services

Many families who arrange a funeral service find the need for specialized services in order to meet their exacting needs. While we can accommodate most any request, below is a short list of the more commonly utilized “alternative” services.

Please contact John J. Fox & Sons, Inc. Funeral Home if you have any questions or particular needs.

  • Non-Traditional Burial, Entombment or Cremation without       visitation. For this type of funeral service, you select the services and merchandise from several itemized options.
  • Private family viewings are available, but may be subject to time limitations. Please ask one of our staff about setting up a private viewing for your family.
  • A Memorial Service is the same as a traditional service, except the body is not present for the visitation or the funeral. The private family viewing explained above also applies here.
  • Traditional Ship-out allows you to select the type of services and merchandise for local arrangements and then the remains are shipped out of town for final services.
  • Limited Graveside Service is designed for those who want a ground burial or interment of cremains with a service only at the cemetery. Itemized options may be selected at the family's discretion.
  • Limited Family Viewing with Shipment is designed for those who want a private family viewing, but no other visitation prior to shipment of the casketed remains. Itemized options are also available to the family.
  • Ship-in Services are for those who want remains shipped to John J. Fox & Sons, Inc. Funeral Home for final services. Itemized options are available.
  • Direct Ship-out is when there is to be no local service and the remains are to be shipped to a funeral home out of town.

Embalming Policy

Although law does not require embalming, embalming may be necessary if you select certain funeral arrangements, such as a funeral with a viewing. If you do not want embalming, you have the right to choose an arrangement, which does not require you to pay for it, such as direct cremation or immediate burial.

If you choose not to embalm, it is our policy to be notified prior to transporting the deceased to the funeral home. A non-embalmed body will be permitted in our funeral home for no longer than 24 hours.

Book of Memories

The pinnacle of memorialization, any family member or friends can take advantage of this free services by creating an account and a book to memorialize their loved one.

Immediate Need

If you have immediate need of our services, we're available for you 24 hours a day.

Obituaries & Tributes

It is not always possible to pay respects in person, so we hope that this small token will help.

Pre-Arrangement

Dying is one of the few events in life that's certain to occur, yet one we rarely plan for. Should we spend more time preparing for a two week vacation than we do our last days on Earth?

Expressions of Sympathy

It can be difficult to find the right words, so we have hand-picked a collection of sympathy and remembrance gifts that will be cherished.

Order Flowers

Offer a gift of comfort and beauty to a family suffering from loss.
