The values that families place on funerals and memorial services are very diverse. Practices are often determined based upon personal preferences, traditions, and cost. To best accommodate those we serve we offer:
Full Traditional and Modified Traditional Services: Services that include a time of viewing or visiting with a casket selection. The service takes place either at the funeral home or other location. Following services the casket is either transported to a cemetery or crematory for disposition.
Immediate Burial Service: A service including private time or viewing for the immediate family of the unembalmed individual with a graveside service to follow. Casket selection is also necessary for this type of service.
Immediate Cremation: An identification of the deceased individual is necessary. Following the cremation process the family may wish a memorial service at the funeral home or other location.
Forward and Receiving An Individual
Planning a service usually begins with an arrangement conference, If a service has been planned for ahead of time, pre arranged, it is often necessary to meet at the time of need to review information previously recorded and discuss service times.
Embalming, though not required by law, may be very necessary and required by this funeral establishment or other faction to conform with a service desired by a family.
Sometimes there are other options available to personalize services. Some are shown below however, please contact us for more information or your specific ideas.

Memorial Tribute DVDs
At Molesworth-Williams Funeral home, we are always searching for new and unique services to offer our families to help with the grieving process at the time of their loss. In such difficult times, we try to find ways to bring comfort and consolation to families, while also making sure to honor and celebrate the life of their loved one. We are now able to bring such a service to our families in the form of a unique and lasting memorial we call a Memorial Tribute DVD.
A Memorial Tribute DVD is a six to ten minute DVD video consisting of personal photographs of a loved one selected by the family set to beautiful music (music selections can come from the family's personal collection or from the funeral home's collection). Written text can also be added to the video to add further personalization (we typically add the loved one's name, dates of birth and death. Using our specialized computer software, we arrange the photographs in a slide show format and make the DVD available for use during the visitation for the loved one. After the services are concluded, the Memorial Tribute DVD will be given to the family as a lasting memorial.
