Full Panel of Services Offered for Funeral and Cremation in Springfield, MO


The funeral experts at Walnut Lawn have a complete selection of products to support funeral services, cremation services, or a combination of the two. While a traditional funeral is a celebrated choice, there are many options to support more modern or alternative choices as well. Ultimately it comes down to the options that the clients prefer. Our aim is to educate the consumer on the available choices and then support what they choose.


Full funeral services can be applied to a range of circumstances. For example, traditional routes might include the full panel of services from embalming the deceased, setting up a viewing or visitation event, and then holding the funeral in honor of the decedent. Alternatively, it may be appropriate to have a smaller graveside service just prior to interment. In some instances, it makes sense to skip the public service and have an immediate burial. A memorial service might be held at a later time if desired.


In 2013 our business grew with the addition of an on-location crematory. Adding cremation services to our professional and personally delivered services has been welcome news to our treasured clients. Having greater control of this process means greater security, higher quality, and, therefore, more peace of mind for all of us.


A myth we run into often is that cremation cannot be selected if a funeral is to be held. This is simply not the case. More and more, families opt to have the healing support of a funeral service followed by a cremation service. The resulting “cremains” can then be buried, scattered, or held in an urn at a location of your choosing. When considering funeral and cremation in Springfield, MO, know your options!


Our cremation services can be fit to the situation at hand and the family’s preferences. As such, we will accommodate direct cremations which have no attached service. Other times a memorial service held after the cremation takes place seems best. As mentioned before, it is possible to pair funeral service with cremation. When this is chosen, we make rental caskets available for the body to be held within during the funeral.


We carry a wide selection of applicable merchandise. Things like caskets, grave liners or burial vaults, and urns can be purchased directly through us. Additionally, there are keepsake mementos that can be ordered, including cremation jewelry. Each of these products is offered to provide peace of mind with high-quality products.


Respect for Veterans and Military Personnel


Those who give so much to our country should be honored for their sacrifices. As such, we are compliant with the law, which provides free funeral or cremation services to honorable veterans who are eligible. Please bring a copy of the deceased serviceman or woman’s appropriate forms to verify qualification for this program.


The minimum services for military personnel include the playing of taps, honor guard detail, and the final folding and presentation of the United States flag. Other available services may consist of a flag-draped casket, rifle volleys (representing duty, honor, and country), and a final salute.


Our team is also well acquainted with the benefits that are offered through the United States Department of Veteran’s Affairs (VA). It is our pleasure to assist you in getting connected with and communicating with this department to provide you with needed services at this time.
