The family has many options for when planning a funeral service.  There are virtually unlimited choices available and each family has the opportunity to select what they believe is appropriate for their loved one.  Our job at Hayhurst Funeral Home is to provide quality, caring service and attention to details.
 

We offer several types of funeral services to meet the needs of your family.

Hayhurst offers Funeral Services for Broken Arrow and the Tulsa metro areas.     The Traditional Service - occurs when your loved one is present.  Open casket visitation would generally be the night before the funeral. The service is normally the following day either in the funeral home or in a church, chosen by the family.  Traditional services often consist of scripture reading, prayers, a eulogy, sometimes a sermon, and music.  Following the  the funeral, there is a procession to the cemetery, for a committal service. 

The Memorial Service - occurs when the deceased is not present. It may take place at the funeral home, the family home, a church, or even outdoors. This is a time to remember your loved one through fellowship with friends and family. The memorial service can also be an addition to a traditional funeral service. For example having a traditional funeral service here and then a memorial service back in the deceased’s home town. A memorial service can also be done following burial or cremation.

The Committal Service - is a brief gravesite service after a tradition funeral service but prior to the burial. This is the time that family and friends say their final good-byes at the final resting place.  If the committal service is the only service then it becomes a grave side service and is accompanied by a visitation the night before. The grave side service is a more lengthy service which may consist of scripture reading, eulogy, poetry, and music.

Traditional Service followed by Cremation - This type of services allows you to have have a visitation, open casket, and a funeral service the following day followed by cremation.

Direct Cremation - In this service there is no visitation or funeral ceremony. The deceased is placed in a refrigeration unit until the proper paperwork has been completed, and the necessary permits are obtained. Then the body is placed in a cremation receptacle (container) and transported to a crematory. The cremated remains may be placed in an urn and ready to be buried, placed in a niche, or be taken home.

Direct Burial - This type of service does not include visitation or a funeral service. Again the person is placed in refrigeration until the proper paperwork is complete. Then the body is bathed, dressed and casketed. The casket is transported to the cemetery for burial at the funeral homes convenience.
