Considering Cremation?

Things to consider when choosing cremation:

  • Whose cremated remains are in your urn?
    By owning and operating a crematory, we can ensure that your loved one never leaves our care.  By using a strict ten step identification process, we make certain that those cremated remains received are that of your loved one.


  • We perform all cremations individually.
    Most death care providers today do not own a crematory. At Lasting Tributes, we use our own crematory, and only perform cremations of our organization and not for multiple outside organizations and cremation companies.  Each and every cremation we perform is done one at a time, ensuring the cremated remains received are that of your loved one. 

  • Our staff members are experienced and our crematory follows strict guidelines.
    Our crematory follows the strict guidelines regulated by the Maryland State Board of Morticians and the Environmental Protection Agency. Our crematory operators are individually trained and certified.

  • We make it Simple, Easy & Affordable.
    Our packaged tributes are designed to simplify an already difficult decision, while keeping your finances in mind. We have no hidden charges or add-ons. Embalming is not required because we offer on-site refrigeration.

  • Our many options are virtually limitless.
    Whether you choose to have a basic direct cremation, a public viewing, celebration of life or scattering at sea, our many tributes allow you to keep it as simple or make it as elaborate as you wish. Contact us today to learn more about what tributes are available and how you can create your own customized tribute. Below are samples of the many tributes offered to honor a life lived.
