Thank you for your interest in Cremation Options, Inc. Exploring and discussing the various options available is a wise decision. Our company is located in Knoxville, Tennessee, locally owned, and dedicated to providing quality cremation services that blend simplicity and economy without sacrificing dignity. Cremation Options offers all services associated with cremation; transportation of the deceased, cremation, death certificates, urns, obituaries, memorial services and 24-hour availability. Our sevices appeal to people who desire cremation, but do not wish to use the services of a traditional funeral home. We specialize in cremation and offer a variety of options to meet the needs of each individual family who has chosen cremation as a dignified alternative to burial.
Typically, our prices are much lower than traditional funeral homes or mortuaries because our overhead is much less. We do not own or maintain large chapels or viewing rooms, carry a large inventory of caskets and burial vaults, nor do we have the need to own limousines or hearses. Generally, the cost for cremation services offers savings of 75% to 80% when compared to the total cost of a traditional funeral service and burial using average merchandise (embalming, casket, burial vault, grave, opening/closing fee, tent and chairs, monument/marker, etc.)
Cremation Options, Inc. is fully licensed by the State of Tennessee as a Licensed Funeral Establishment and must adhere to the same federal, state, and local laws and inspections as traditional funeral homes. We are an active member of the Cremation Association of North America (CANA) and a Transportation Security Administration Partner (TSA), a program working in conjunction with the U. S. Department of Homeland Security, aiding air travelers in the transportation of cremated remains via the airlines.
Should you be considering cremation, the most important step is to make your wishes known. We have designed a variety of ways to do just that. Pre-planning for cremation is not morbid; it just makes good sense. Advanced planning allows you to spare your family from making countless emotional and financial decisions at a time when logical choices are seldom considered. Most importantly…your wishes may be carried out…..down to the smallest detail. Please call at your earliest convenience should you have questions or wish to discuss our various options. We will be available when you need us the most….WE CARE.
