Funeral, Memorial & Cremation Care is very important to us at Ernst Funeral & Cremation Services.  We never want to tell a family what they must have or should do.  Our job is to offer every possible option a family may want to make their funeral or memorial ceremony memorable and unique for their loved one; while never pressuring them or trying to upsell them into services they do no desire. Below are just a few of the many services we provide.


  • Traditional Funeral Ceremonies

  • Graveside Committal Services
  • Celebration of Life Services
  • Memorial Services
  • Cremation Services
  • Military Ceremonies

Many times a death can occur suddenly and unexpectedly; and so comes an expense many are not prepared for.  Rest assured at Ernst Funeral & Cremation Services, we offer a number of convenient payment options listed below.
  • Cash
  • Venmo (up to $5,000.00 - no fee)

  • Life Insurance Assignment (Subject to a 3.75%  fee of the total amount assigned will be charged as a processing fee.  Express Funeral Funding will handle all aspects  of the claim and assignment on behalf of the beneficiary.  This process typically expedites the time  frame for a claim to be paid.  By using this  method, NO payment is required prior to any funeral/cremation arrangements.)
