What is the Cremation Society of Minnesota?

The Cremation Society of Minnesota is Minnesota’s largest provider of cremation services.

Society members come from all social, religious, and economic backgrounds, finding unity in their mutual attraction to the simplicity of the cremation rite. They choose to dispense with costly and unnecessary pomp associated with conventional funerals, and commit themselves and their families to this dignified disposition at the time of death.

Our membership plan allows families to make all arrangements in advance, thereby relieving survivors of the need to make urgent decisions while in the state of grief. Pre-planning provides families with complete peace of mind, both emotionally and financially.

At the time of death, our counselors are available to assist your survivors in arranging for memorial services, obtaining certified copies of the death certificate, cemetery services, grave markers and monuments, obituaries for newspapers and paperwork for Social Security and Veterans’ benefits.

Most Society members are not only attracted to the purity and dignity of this rite, but are also concerned citizens who look toward the future and the eventual scarcity of the land. They also believe that the thousands of dollars saved in funeral costs can be put to a much more meaningful use through bequests to children or grandchildren – or perhaps left in memoriam to the decedent’s favorite charity as a continuation of his or her efforts to build a better tomorrow.
