Since 1983, Oakwood Crematory has been owned and operated by Koch Funeral Home and is located within the facility. Choosing cremation is a very personal decision, whether someone is planning their own services, to alleviate their family from that burden, or when family members are choosing cremation as a loving and respectful way to memorialize their loved one.
Cremation has become acceptable due to personal and religious reasons.
The National Funeral Directors Association (NFDA) conducted a survey to calculate the median cost of a funeral with cremation. In 2021, the median cost was $6,970.
There are several types of cremation services available and our prices range from $4,490 - $7,210:

- A cremation service without embalming, a memorial and visitation at a church or other setting and no casket

CANA Code of Cremation Practice
In the practice of cremation, we believe:
in dignity and respect in the care of the deceased, in compassion for the living who survive them, and in the memorialization of life; that a Cremation Authority should be responsible for creating and maintaining an atmosphere of respect at all times; that the greatest care should be taken in the appointment of crematory staff members, any of whom must not, by conduct or demeanor, bring the crematory or cremation into disrepute; that cremation should be considered as preparation for memorialization; and that the dead of our society should be memorialized through a commemorative means suitable to the survivors.
