Cremation Options

Cremation Services in Daytona and Ormond Beach

Since every family is different and has unique needs, our funeral home knows it’s important to offer families in the Daytona Beach and Ormond Beach areas an array of various affordable cremation options. Woodward Funeral Homes owns and operates our own state of the art crematory, so you rest assured your loved one stays with us at all times and is not transported to a third party facility.

Direct Cremation

Direct cremation, also know as a simple cremation, is when the decedent is cremated without any viewing or services. The cremains can be placed in a variety of containers such as an urn. Families may want this option if they are not ready to have a memorial service right away or if the deceased did not want to have a service at all. Our direct cremation service includes the transportation of your loved one into our care, climate-controlled cremation housing, the cremation itself, and returning the cremains to the family. We obtain all permitting necessary to perform the cremation and as well as the certified death certificates.



Cremation with Family Viewing

Direct Cremation with Private Family Viewing

Similar to the direct cremation service listed above, this option gives families the option to see their loved one prior to cremation. This takes place at the funeral home and is an option for immediate family members to say a private goodbye. 



Cremation with a Memorial Service

For this service, the deceased will be cremated prior to the funeral service. The ashes will be placed in the container of your choice. Then, we will hold a funeral service in honor of your loved one.


Funeral services often include an officiant or family members speaking to pay tribute to a loved on. Typically, the cremains in their desired container are present. Families choose this option if they do not want a viewing of their loved one’s body but still want a service.


Cremation with a Graveside Service

When choosing a graveside service, a service takes place after your loved one has been cremated. Then, friends and family will gather by the at the cemetery or grave plot for a funeral service.


The service can include having a minister or family members speak at the graveside. At the end of the service, the deceased’s ashes will be buried — they can be buried as is or in a selected container such as an urn.



Cremation with a Celebration of Life Service

Similar to the services above, the deceased will be cremated prior to the celebration of life service. However, a celebration of life service is not necessarily the same as a traditional funeral service. This service option gives families more options for creativity and can be held in any venue of their choosing. It’s a time for family and friends to gather and share memories of the deceased.


Of course, with any of these services, you can choose to have a viewing before cremation. With this option, the deceased will be embalmed and prepared for a viewing. Then later on they are cremated, and the family will receive their ashes.


Ash Scattering Services

We can help you organize a ceremony where your loved one's ashes are scattered in a location of your choice. A key point for this cremation service is finding a location that was of significance to your loved one.

Other Options

  • Rental Casket Visitation followed by Cremation allows the family, friends, and public time to say goodbye to their loved one. This is a gathering that allows a family to spend time with their loved one prior to cremation. The services included in a direct cremation are also included in this package.
  • Anatomical Body Donation followed by Cremation is a partnership our funeral home has with local universities in the area. We work to coordinate with these universities to have your loved one driven to their university to have their body donated to science.
