Cremation is a manner of treating the physical remains of your loved one that differs from the traditional burial process.
At Boren-Conner Funeral Home, we operate the only crematory in both Cherokee and Smith counties. Our crematory is operated by compassionate individuals who recognize the importance of a caring and dignified cremation service.

Our on-site cremation facility is conveniently located to offer the families of East Texas to chance to visit and see the cleanliness of our space and the dedicated nature of our staff. Whether you choose a simple, low-cost cremation or a more traditional and culturally-appropriate cremation, we will honor your specific wishes regarding your loved one’s remains.

Cremation vs. Burial

Cremation provides you and your family with more flexibility for memorial services. It allows you to schedule a service at a time and place that is convenient for everyone. It is also a better choice for the environment, as there is no need for a casket, burial site, or grounds maintenance.
Contrary to belief, a complete cremation service offered by Boren-Conner Funeral Home is structured just like a traditional funeral service – only cremation follows the service instead of a casketed burial. Urns may be used to hold the cremated remains, or they may be scattered according to the wishes of the deceased.

What takes place after the cremation of your loved one is completely up to you and your family. Cremation, when performed in a respectful and dignified manner, offers many options for the memorialization of your loved one.

Whichever service you choose, Boren-Conner Funeral Home will ensure that it fulfills the wishes of your family and your loved one’s remains. Contact us today to discuss your options further.
