At Roberts of Ocala Funerals & Cremations, we know that supporting our veterans is essential. They have served us all well and deserve to be honored at their passing. We are here to guide you through creating a meaningful military ceremony or cremation service so that you can celebrate your veteran in style.We recommend working with us as early as possible to help you complete all of the necessary paperwork for your veteran and coordinate everything with the U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs beforehand. The more time we have to work together before the veteran's passing, the easier it will be on everyone involved. Please keep in mind that not all locations are appropriate for a military funeral service. If you are holding the ceremony at a place of worship, ensure that there is enough room for family members and friends to attend comfortably - your church seats only 100 people? You'll need to find another location.One of our funeral directors will help you select family members or friends who would like to speak at the veteran's service, sharing memories and anecdotes about them for everyone in attendance. In addition, military honor guards for events that involve veterans; these groups play an essential role in the ceremony by presenting colors during the service, carrying the casket, playing taps, and more.It is customary in many cultures to have food, drinks, and socializing after a funeral ceremony to comfort each other in person rather than over phone calls or cards.
In some instances, estate funds need to be raised to pay for the funeral expenses. If that's the case, a fundraiser serving as a speaker might be involved. This sort of situation can benefit from a flower donation. We will work with you and your family to create a particular plan for delivery, depending on what you're trying to accomplish with your fundraiser. Send flowers to show appreciation for their service and add beauty, color, and scent to make it an even more memorable experience.At Roberts of Ocala Funerals & Cremations, we have professionals who will help you navigate the journey of grief in your time of need.

Roberts of Ocala Funerals & Cremations, we offer traditional burial services, cremation services, and more. We also can help you create a memorial onsite. We want to help you through the process of honoring your loved one with dignity and grace, whether it’s with burial or cremation. Our staff takes pride in helping our community remember and celebrate lives lived. We know how meaningful it is for families who choose pyres. Many cemeteries limit the number of interments allowed per gravesite; it is sometimes possible to acquire additional internment rights only by moving an existing body. Also, if you wish to reuse a grave, removing and replacing an intact body may be difficult and costly (in terms of the casket and grave liner). They are very dense to be stored in tiny spaces, including urns and decorative boxes. A traditional burial typically costs over $10,000 – not including a plot or concrete vault. However, since a cremation can cost as little as a tenth of the price, you’ll have more for yourself and your family to enjoy after the funeral. Family members who are opposed to cremation services because it's different from traditional burials may come around if they understand that cremated remains can be buried in cemeteries (in some cases, such as where particular niches or mausoleum walls are set aside for this purpose) and even used on memorial trees. While you don't necessarily save any time by choosing cremation, some families appreciate the simplicity and convenience of not having to arrange a funeral service.It’s helpful for many families to have a physical marker of remains. You can hold a memorial service right here on-site, in any one of our comfortable meeting rooms with audio/visual equipment.
