Waldoboro Cremation Service Provider

Waldoboro is a small coastal town about halfway up Maine’s coast, with an overall population of around 5,000. Given its adjacency to the Atlantic Ocean, its claim to fame is as a popular fishing town. Originally purchased in the 1600s, Waldoboro did not begin settlement until the mid-1730s. It boasts several historical places on the National Registry, including a German Church and Cemetery, a post office, the Waldo Theater, and several houses, among others.

Cremations in Wiscasset

The town of Wiscasset, Maine, northeast of Waldoboro, has a population of roughly 3,700 residents. Like Waldoboro, the land was purchased in the mid-1600s and incorporated in 1760. Located on the Wiscasset harbor, the town found itself an important area for shipbuilders, as well as fishing and lumber, becoming the busiest seaport in all of Maine. Sadly, after its nuclear reactor was shut down, the town lost many jobs, which affected surrounding towns and the schools as well. However, it looks to use tidal power as a new energy source in the upcoming years. The town has a great bright spot for food connoisseurs: Red’s Eats is an enormously popular restaurant.

Boothbay Cremations

Boothbay and Boothbay Harbor are small towns in the southern portion of Lincoln County, totaling just over 5,000 residents in total. The town of Boothbay is quiet in the winter months. It comes to life in summer due to its position near the coast between the picturesque Sheepscot and Damariscotta rivers. In addition to its regional historical society, visitors flock to the coastal hiking trails in the Land Trust preserves, as well as the botanical gardens, playhouse, and the Ram Island Lighthouse, built in 1883. Furthermore, the Railway Village preserves history, as you ride on a model railroad.

Its southern neighbor, Boothbay Harbor, began as a fishing harbor with companies producing fish, fish oil, ice, canned lobsters, and fertilizer. Also popular among tourists, Boothbay Harbor has a state-of-the-art aquarium, art galleries, and plenty of restaurants. For the sightseers, whale-watching tours are quite popular, as well as boat tours to the islands off the coast. The town boasts many notable residents who are authors, musicians, and military veterans.

Other Communities

In addition to these towns, Plummer Funeral home serves plenty of other communities east of I-295 and south of the capital, Augusta. These include Alna, Bremen, Bristol, Capitol Island, Chamberlain, Coopers Mills, Damariscotta, Dresden, East Boothbay, Edgecomb, Isle of Springs, Jefferson, Medomak, Monhegan, New Harbor, Newagen, Newcastle, Nobleboro, Pemaquid, Round Pond, Somerville, South Bristol, Southport, Squirrel Island, Trevett, Walpole, West Boothbay Harbor, Westport Island, and Whitefield. These towns range from 700-2,700 people in size, and they are all close to fishing and summer tourism communities. Among these, Newagen is probably the biggest draw, boasting the highly rated Newagen Seaside Inn, which is a waterside resort on 20 acres of land.

While offering the standard memorial and burial services, Plummer Funeral Home offers three types of cremation services.

Plummer Funeral Home immediately notifies the families when the cremated human remains (sometimes referred to as ashes) are available.

Plummer Funeral Home has been a family-owned business for more than 100 years. Serving the needs of Augusta and the greater Sagadahoc County region Maine, Plummer Funeral Home is available any time, day or night, when families face the difficulty of losing a loved one.

One of the services offered by Plummer Funeral Home is cremation. Cremation has become a popular method for the disposition of final remains and an option more and more people are turning to with each passing decade. Through a process of heat and evaporation, remains are rendered to small fragments and then processed into a fine powder. The process is tightly controlled and performed according to specific guidelines, and the deceased is treated with the utmost respect at all times. The entire process is usually completed within three hours.

There are many factors influencing the growing trend of cremation, including environmental concerns, cost, and religious traditions. When cremation is chosen, resources required for traditional burial can be preserved, including already limited green space. There are additional costs associated with traditional burial that are not required with cremation, such as embalming and public or private viewing of the deceased. Some religious traditions, such as Sikhs and Buddhists, choose cremation because they believe it frees the soul.

Bath Cremation Services

The City of Bath, the seat of Sagadahoc County, was founded as a town in 1781 and a city in 1847. This quaint city with a population of 8,000 sits on the Kennebec River. It was built on the industry of shipbuilding. This remains a major industry in Bath today with the presence of Bath Iron Works. Visitors to Bath can get back to nature with tours of nature preserves and sanctuaries, a trip to nearby Popham Beach State Park, or a serene walk through Sewall Woods. There’s also a maritime museum and a great selection of dining, shopping, and entertainment activities in the downtown area. Plummer Funeral Home is proud to serve the city of Bath.

The main industries in Bowdoin are agriculture and factory work. The Merrymeeting Arts Center in Bowdoin promotes whimsy, environmental consciousness, and diversity through a number of artist offerings to the community.

Cremations are Simple but Versatile

When a family chooses cremation through SimpleCremationUSA, they are choosing a direct cremation. This choice precludes having a traditional service with a viewing. In this case, the deceased would be embalmed and would not be cremated until services were complete. Other alternatives with a direct cremation include a memorial service or a committal or scattering ceremony after cremation. Cremated remains can be buried in a traditional grave, placed in a ceremonial garden, mausoleum, or columbarium or scattered in a location that was of special importance to the deceased. A family can choose to keep all or a portion of the cremated remains in their care.

Plummer Funeral Home realizes that planning a funeral is an important step toward healing. A funeral is a chance for family and friends to gather in support of one another and say goodbye to someone very special. Plummer Funeral Home is committed to working with families in the Waldo County region to remember their loved ones in a meaningful way.

Founded by Henry W. Plummer in 1898, the original Plummer Funeral Home was started in a small office in Augusta. It was moved to its current location in 1920 and has been routinely upgraded to reflect the state-of-the-art facilities that exist today. Additionally, a second facility was opened in Windsor, Maine in 2003.

Belfast was settled by Scotch-Irish families in 1770. In the 1800s, its proximity to the waterfront made it a major hub of maritime commerce, including shipbuilding. By the 1950s, the city had become rich in industry, and during the 1980s Belfast was rebirthed as an artist community featuring many restored homes and commercial buildings. Attractions in the area include the Belfast and Moosehead Lake Railway, Belfast Harbor Fest, Arts in the Park, and the Maine Celtic Celebration. The Plummer Funeral Home is honored to serve the City of Belfast.

Cremation in Searsport

The Plummer Funeral Home often serves the families of Searsport. The City of Searsport enjoys 10 breathtaking miles of coastline on Penobscot Bay, which has contributed heavily to the town’s development. In the 1800s, Searsport thrived on shipbuilding and cargo handling. By World War II, the town had turned its attention to chemical and petroleum shipping. Visitors to the town can tour the Penobscot Marine Museum and view the treasures brought back from all around the world by sea captains. Families can enjoy the Searsport Shores Ocean Campground on the picturesque Maine harbors.

On Cremation

Cremation is an available option for the final disposition of the remains of the deceased. Through a process of heat and evaporation, remains are rendered to small fragments that are then processed into a fine powder. In a traditional burial, remains are slowly oxidized, whereas with cremation a rapid oxidation takes place.

Cremation is a popular and growing option for a number of reasons, including environmental concerns, affordability, and traditions related to religions and creeds. Choosing cremation allows for the preservation of resources required in traditional burial, including already limited green space.

In addition, because families may choose to forego the embalming and viewing stage when choosing cremation, the costs associated with funeral care can be reduced. This can help ease stress at an already difficult time.

Some religions, such as the Hindu and Sikh faiths, choose cremation because they believe that cremation releases the spirit from the body. The entire cremation process is typically completed within three hours. Each cremation takes place individually. There are a set of very strict protocols in place to ensure proper identification and respectful and dignified handling.

Choosing cremation does not mean that a family may not have a full funeral service with a public or private viewing, if so desired. A funeral and a viewing can still take place and cremation can be performed after the service is complete. Families may also choose to have service after the cremation has been performed. Many families choose a memorial service at graveside or at a ceremonial garden where the cremated remains will be interred. Others may choose a committal or scattering ceremony at a place that was special to their loved one. If it is the family’s wish, all or a portion of the cremated remains can be returned to the family’s care.
