A couple of aspects that make the Hodges Funeral Home basic cremation unique, compared to other providers: the same as every other service type provided by the Hodges Funeral Home -no deposit is required at time of need- we ask that payment be made in 30 days  or longer if requested. Proof of death certificates are unlimited. And if a family wishes to have a brief viewing at the funeral home, relatively soon after death and prior to the the transfer to the crematorium, there is no extra cost.
