The earliest human burial service dates back 100,000 years making it one of the longest-lived and most widespread of traditions. For an overview of the many different burial traditions, check out the websites in the Resources section below.
Here at Nelson Family Mortuary, we have the deepest respect for this traditional practice. If you are interested in learning more about our affordable burial service, please review the following information. Should you have questions about anything, please call us at (801) 405-7444.
There are many things to consider when deciding whether to bury a recently deceased loved one or when selecting burial during funeral pre-planning. One of the first decisions you'll need to make involves choosing both the cemetery and the specific place of burial service within its grounds. You'll then need to select a casket and possibly a burial vault, as many modern cemeteries require their use. At some point, and this does not have to take place right away, the decision becomes one of selecting the headstone or marker and writing the inscription. A member of our professional staff will be available should you wish to have assistance in making each of these decisions. If you're considering an affordable cremation service we have a page to compare that option as well.
We offer a number of affordable burial service options. They range from simple burials where only a member of our staff oversees the internment; simple graveside services led by a minister or celebrant; and a traditional funeral service followed by burial. Each can be tailored to meet the needs and expectations of today's price-conscious families.
