Why Should I Consider Becoming a Member of a Cremation Society?

There is a power that comes from gathering with like-minded people. You see it all the time. People become members of organizations, churches, clubs, and societies as a way to express their passions and interests, to learn, to give back, or to get to know people who think the same way they do. The Cypress Lawn Heritage Foundation is one example of such an organization. Members receive a number of benefits, like access to special lectures and tours, our newsletter, invitations to special events, and discounts on merchandise and flowers. They also get the satisfaction of knowing they are preserving the beauty and history of Cypress Lawn.

Cypress Lawn offers membership in another organization of like-minded people. The Cypress Lawn Cremation Society is a group of members who want to ensure their desires and needs when it comes to their cremation are followed after they pass. There is a very low membership fee, and the benefits to members are the major draw:

  • When you become a member, we will hold all your personal information on file, along with your wishes and preferences for your cremation and funeral services.
  • We will provide you with all the information you’ll need to give to your family to make sure when the time comes, they know exactly where to go to make your arrangements.
  • You’ll have peace of mind knowing your wishes will be followed after you pass away.
  • Some members choose to prepay for all of their services. This locks in today’s costs, while protecting your family from any unexpected financial burdens after you’re gone.
