We are a full service funeral home providing personalization to all services. Some of the services we provide are:
This type of service is when arrangements are made to have a visitation and funeral ceremony, followed by burial at the cemetery. The visitation and/or funeral ceremony can take place at a church, our chapel or directly at the graveside.
This service is very similar to a traditional burial, where a visitation and ceremony occur. The difference is that following the funeral, the deceased is transported to the crematory instead of going to the cemetery.
This is a service, usually associated with cremation, without the body present. The burial or cremation may or may not have preceded the memorial service.
We provide full transportation services both inbound and outbound via airline transportation. Another popular option that is extremely personalized, as well as cost saving, and offered by the Allen J. Harden Funeral Home is transportation of the deceased by automobile transportation instead of on the airlines. With this option, the family gets extremely personalized service, has to deal with one funeral home and receives a reduction in overall cost due to the fact of only working with one funeral home, instead of two separate funeral homes.
We have memory boards and tables available for every family. This is a system which allows you to personalize the service through photographs and other keepsakes or memorabilia to display for family and friends to see.
This service is when arrangements are made to inter the deceased in a cemetery without having any ceremony or visitation.
Direct cremation is selected when no ceremony or visitation, of any kind, is desired. It is the least expensive option offered
