Carnes Funeral Home is dedicated to providing meaningful, caring, personalized and detailed cremation services to you and your family in your time of bereavement. You may choose from a variety of cremation service options to suit your needs and preferences or those previously specified by the deceased.
Cremation service arrangements can be made by email, fax or online; alternatively, call us to make an appointment to visit one of our funeral home locations. We will explain all available options and related costs.
Most medical schools, and several private organizations, accept donations of whole bodies for use in research and education. Most of these donor-accepting programs offer a no-cost cremation option following the donation; alternatively, you can request the return of the cremated remains.
Please note, a screening process is involved and determines eligibility.
We work in close coordination with several programs, and usually can place a donation for those who are interested in doing so.
You may also call either of these two numbers to initiate the screening process or to learn more: 713.489.9521 or 409.359.5403
