R. Lee Williams & Son Funeral Home and Crematory

Burial Services

A traditional service for burial, entombment or cremation, is usually the service of choice. R Lee Williams & Son Funeral Home and Crematory believe's in the traditional funeral, because it best serves the needs of family and friends.

The traditional funeral service may include the following:

  • Casket
  • Transfer of the deceased to the funeral home
  • Embalming
  • Dressing, cosmetology and other care of the deceased
  • Professional support and administrative staff assistance
  • Use of visitation rooms
  • General use of the facilities for the service and arrangements
  • Funeral service
  • Use of funeral coach
  • Limousine
  • Utility car
  • Register book
  • Acknowledgment cards
  • Memorial folders or prayer cards

The traditional service is a meaningful expression for the family, and it gives friends and associates an opportunity to offer their tributes in the way of flowers or memorials to churches or organizations. Generally, a member of the clergy or other person chosen by the family conducts a service of remembrance. We encourage the active participation of the family in helping plan this part of the service. Many times family members take part by giving a reading, singing or assisting the clergy..

Direct Burial

The body is buried shortly after death, usually in a simple container. No viewing or visitation is involved, so no embalming is necessary. A memorial service may be held at the graveside or later. Direct burial usually costs less than the "traditional," full-service funeral. Costs include the funeral home's basic services fee, as well as transportation and care of the body, the purchase of a casket or burial container and a cemetery plot or crypt. If the family chooses to be at the cemetery for the burial, the funeral home charges an additional fee for a graveside service.

Embalming Policy

Florida law does not require embalming. However, embalming will be necessary if you select certain funeral arrangements, such as a funeral with a viewing. If you do not want embalming, you have the right to choose an arrangement, such as direct cremation or immediate burial, that does not require embalming. R Lee Williams & Son Funeral Home and Crematory will obtain written authorization to embalm by the immediate next of kin, before we embalm.

When someone we love becomes a memory, the memory becomes a treasure. Those who touch our lives stay in our hearts forever...
