Ballou & Stotts Funeral Services provide a wide range of services within the Cumberland county area of Kentucky to meet the needs of all families we are privelaged to serve.
During this time of need, our staff is focused on allowing the family to go through the grieving process and being with family without being distracted or frustrated by details. We are here for you and your family to truly make this event the celebration of life for your loved one.
This conference is of utmost importance, whether it be at the time of need or in a pre-arrangement setting. We take time during this conference to meet with the family, find out about them and the person they are arranging for, and assist them in determining what services will best serve them. The conference is the time where our relationship with the family is established. This meeting will decide, in detail, the 'personality' of the service desired. It is at this point the planning for the "Celebration of Life" begins.
Traditional Funeral Services
A traditional funeral service is when your loved one is present. Generally visitation is held the day or night before the funeral. The funeral service itself is held either in our funeral home, a church or other location, followed by a procession to the cemetery for a committal service, or if cremated, the deceased is returned to the funeral home.
Our basic services include, but are not limited to:
Embalming and Other Preparation of the Body
The embalming process includes preparation and sanitary care to ensure disinfection and preservation. Embalming requires specialized facilities and equipment. Other preparation of the body includes bathing, shaving, dressing, cosmetizing and casketing.
