History & Staff
We have years of experience caring for families, from all walks of life. Each family comes to us because they know we are leaders in our profession, dedicated to excellence in service, and have the highest integrity.
We are the first cremation society in Mid & Northern Michigan, to exclusively provide direct cremation services. Pre-registering with us assists your family with planning the type of services that are consistent with your wishes and that honor your life story. This relieves your survivors from making choices and significant and important decisions while under emotional distress.
Our legacy of dedication, trust, and family ownership offers you and your loved ones over a century of experience. Our mission is to provide direct cremation services at a fair and economical price with dignity, compassion, and understanding. We believe this affords you and your loved ones both financial and emotional peace of mind. The mission of Cremation Society of Mid Michigan is to offer stress free and efficient pre-registration for services without pressure. With us, those that choose cremation are treated with respect and dignity. Cremation services with us, are our only focus and not a sideline to the often more costly option of "traditional funerals".
