Cremation Services Macon, GA

Bridge Over Ocmulgee River TrailThe roots of the Fletcher-Day Funeral Home can be traced back to 1893 when the C.M. Livery Feed and Sale Stable decided to start building caskets and renting horse and wagon transport to cemeteries for burial. In 1937, the business began focusing solely on funerals. The business located to North Church Street in 1972, where it still stands today, a modern facility meeting the needs of a changing society and a well-respected leader in providing service to the Bibb County region. Now four generations of Fletchers strong, Bob Fletcher and Darren Day oversee the oldest same-family-owned business in the county.

Traditional Values and Progressive Options

Fletcher-Day Funeral Home stands by the traditional values upon which it was built, while integrating state-of-the-art technologies and offering customization to meet the needs of the families it serves. Progressive and personalized options include maintaining an active website rich in information, online pre-planning, video tributes, and other innovative options.

Cremation Services

Fletcher-Day Funeral Home offers cremation services available with or without funeral or memorial services. When choosing direct cremation, we will forego the embalming and viewing stage and, as a result, this can be a less costly option than a traditional funeral. While we understand costs may not be the foremost thing in your mind at a time of loss, these expenses can be a worry, and direct cremation will lessen those costs. Cremation is a manner in which a family can choose to deal with their loved one's physical remains, but it doesn't limit the options available for honoring the life of a loved one. Cremation, combined with a funeral or memorial service, provides a meaningful experience through which family and friends can gather and allow the healing journey to begin.

Under the pressure of a need to return to work and resume normal activities, people often feel they don't have enough time to grieve. After cremation, a family may choose to scatter the remains of a loved one in a place that was special to them. Unfortunately, it often leaves those left behind without a permanent place to connect with the memories of their loved one. All cremated remains, or a portion of cremated remains, may be interred at a cremation garden, cemetery, or mausoleum as a comfort to loved ones and an anchor to a family's personal history.

The cremation process can be paired with a regular memorial service to be designed however desired.

One of the services available in the Fletcher Day Funeral Home of Georgia is cremation. Cremation renders the physical remains of the deceased into a fine powder.

Cremation Services Barnesville and Milner, GA

Milner SignFamilies in the Thomaston and Lamar County region have trusted Fletcher-Day Funeral Home with the care of loved ones for decades. The roots of the business can be traced back to 1893, when it began as a casket-building side business of a feed and sale stable. Before long, the business began renting out carts and horses to transport loved ones for burial, and by the 1930s, the business shifted solely to funeral care.

In its current location since 1972, Fletcher-Day Funeral Home is a leader in the community with modern facilities, a dedication to excellence, and a commitment to service with integrity.

Direct Cremation Service in Georgia

The Fletcher-Day Funeral Home offers cremation as one of its available services. Cremation is the process by which the remains of the deceased are rendered to a fine powder through a process of heat and evaporation. Cremation is a popular and growing option for many reasons including affordability, religious preferences, and environmental concerns.

When direct cremation is performed, it is not required to perform embalming or hold a visitation. As a result, the costs of services can be lowered, which can help to reduce stress at an already challenging time. Bear in mind that if a family wishes to have a public or private visitation, it is possible to embalm the deceased, prepare them for viewing, and then perform the cremation after the funeral service.

Cremation is sometimes chosen for religious reasons. Some faiths, including Buddhism and Sikhism, believe that the spirit is freed from the body through the process of cremation.

Lastly, a common reason for choosing cremation is concern for the environment. A traditional burial requires the use of many resources, including wood, steel, concrete, fabrics, and chemicals. When cremation is performed, these resources can be preserved. Additionally, when traditional burial is not required, limited green space can also be preserved.

Cremations in Barnesville, GA

Gordon CollegeBarnesville, a small city of 6,700, serves as the county seat of Lamar County, GA. Barnesville was first settled in 1826 and was a stop for the passing stage lines that allowed horses to be refreshed and weary travelers to grab a bite to eat before returning to the road. As the railroad came through in the 1840s, the town began to grow, with the heart of the community centered on the train depot.

During the Civil War, Barnesville was home to many field hospitals, and a section of the local Greenwood Cemetery was set aside for Confederate soldiers who lost their lives in battle. After the war, Barnesville prospered in the buggy industry and the production of cotton crops. In the early 1900s, the city featured many amusements and boarding houses for the convenience and enjoyment of those passing through on the train. After World War II, soldiers were incentivized to build in Barnesville with offers of $10 lots, which led to a construction boom.

Today, Gordon State College is a big draw for the city, and much of the housing and retail activity is driven by students. Each year, there's a Battle of the Bones festival in Barnesville that includes a variety of soul and blues music and some of the best barbecue in Georgia. The Barnesville Buggy Festival is a three-day event with concerts, streets dances, arts and crafts, and a parade, all in honor of Barnesville ties to the buggy-building industry. Visitors can tour the Old Jail Museum and Historic Carnegie Library.

Visitors can take advantage of the laid-back pace to enjoy some hunting or fishing, or they can visit historical sites. Come for a visit, and you just might be tempted to call it home. Roberta is a great place to raise a family, with tight knit neighborhoods, caring schools, a safe and clean environment, and some of the sweetest peaches found anywhere.

Roberta’s history began as a small community providing services for tourists coming through on the railroad. As the railroad was discontinued and highways were built, Roberta settled into being a quiet, family-oriented town full of Southern charm. Roberta features several buildings registered with the National Register of Historic Places and 19 sites registered with the State Archaeological Office, including an Indian Agency Reserve and the burial site of Benjamin Hawkins, an Indian Agent who served from 1794 to 1816.

Visitors may be interested in the Museum of Southeastern Indians and Farm Museum, which displays Native American pottery, artifacts, and antique farming equipment. There are also historical barns and a petting zoo on-site. Visitors can see a fully restored 1962 Seaboard Coastline caboose in the downtown area near the railroad depot. The caboose holds a history of the town’s railroad heritage and a memorial to Southern Railroad employees. Also downtown is the Benjamin Hawkins monument, which was originally erected in 1931.

Crawford County Cremation

One of the many services offered by Fletcher-Day Funeral Home is cremation. Cremation is a process by which the remains of the deceased are rendered to a fine powder. Cremation is associated with lower overall costs. Some funeral related costs include burial, headstone, and embalming. These are not required when cremation is chosen. If expense is of significant concern, funeral services can be avoided entirely and direct cremation can be performed. However, when choosing cremation, it is possible to have a traditional funeral service with viewing, if so desired.

Cremation has also grown in popularity due to environmental concerns. Some of the resources required for traditional burial, such as concrete, wood, metal, fabrics, and embalming fluid are not needed for cremation and so can preserved. Burial is also not needed, freeing up additional green space that would otherwise be used.

Cremation may be an excellent choice for many as we transition into being a more mobile society. People move across states and to other regions more so today than ever. The idea of leaving a loved one behind in a cemetery with no one to care for the grave can be a troubling notion. Because the cremated remains of a loved one can be retained in an urn, many people like the idea of being able to take their loved one with them wherever life’s journey may take them.

Cremation is performed in a strictly regulated environment and in a tightly controlled process. This ensures that cremated remains are never misidentified, that each cremation is individual, that cremations are properly witnessed (including by family members, if they wish), and that the deceased is treated with dignity and respect at all times.
