Watson-Thomas Funeral Home Services


If you can imagine it, we will do our best to provide it. We offer many types of personalization to funerals and visitations. Many people bring special music for a visitation or funeral. We assemble collage boards with pictures and other items that were significant to the loved one’s life. We also can provide memory videos and picture memorial folders. If you have an idea please feel free to contact a director to help you with your personalization. We strive to provide you with a good lasting memory of your loved one’s service. Below is a short discussion of service possibilities. Also included with all funerals at Watson-Thomas Funeral Home is the book:

Traditional Funeral Service
This is a service with the body present. In this type of service a person would have visitation (the night before or the day of the funeral) with a funeral service following (either at the deceased's church or at the funeral home), followed with burial at a cemetery. You may also select a traditional service without visitation.

Graveside Service
This is another service with the body present. In this type of service you may choose to have a visitation (the night before or the day of the funeral) with a graveside service (at the cemetery) following. You may also select a graveside service without visitation.

Immediate Burial
This is also a service with the body present. In this type of burial no services are held, the deceased is taken to the place of burial without any type of public service being held.

Traditional Cremation Service

This is a service with the body present. In this type of service a person would have visitation (the night before or the day of the funeral) with a funeral service following (either at the deceased's church or at the funeral home), followed the next day with burial of cremains at a cemetery (some families choose to not bury their loved one’s cremains or wait until a later date to do so. You may also select a traditional cremation without visitation.

Memorial Service
In this type of service the body is not present. The body is cremated upon death and only the cremains are present during the memorial service. In this type of service you may also have a visitation with the memorial service following. Some families choose to go to the cemetery following the memorial service to bury the cremains.

Direct Cremation
In this type of cremation no services of any type are held. The body is cremated upon death and the ashes returned to the family for disposition.

These are the main services we provide. If you do not see the type of service you are looking for please contact us and we will be able to meet your service requests.
