Funeral Services Daytona Beach

When someone we love passes away, the hardest thing to do is to say goodbye. It’s also one of the most important. The way we process grief is by finding ways to let go of the people we love. And a funeral service is, for many people, the most sensible option when it comes to this.


At Woodward Cremation and Funeral Services, we understand the position you’re in when you come to us. That’s why we’re proud to help families with a variety of burial services to suit their wishes. We help finalize and move the entire process along so you feel comfortable with the service you’re getting. 


Because, at the end of the day, it’s our honor to help you honor your loved ones. Let’s take a closer look at your burial options, and how Woodward’s funeral services in Daytona can help you say a dignified goodbye to the people who matter most.

Funeral Services: Daytona Beach

When it comes to a funeral service, the most important thing is finding one that works for you, specifically. Maybe your loved one wanted something big, with public viewing and a lot of people. Maybe they pictured something smaller, more intimate. And don’t forget: you’re a factor in this, as well. The funeral needs to be something you and the rest of your family are comfortable with, as well.


We understand this is a unique situation, and we offer a range of services to suit your specific needs. Choose from different packages based on your needs and preferences, including the following:

      • Immediate Burial: With this option, family members can have their loved ones either buried or entombed and forego any kind of public gathering. This is the most direct option and is the most affordable. For an immediate burial or entombment, there is a place you and your loved ones can return to visit, without a ceremony.

      • Graveside Service Similar to an immediate burial, a graveside service allows families to have a service at the cemetery shorter than a traditional service that would be in a church or at the funeral home. The service can be given by an officiant or family member. A graveside service can also follow a traditional funeral service.

      • Visitation or Wake: This is a popular option with people wanting to pay their last respects and is also known as a wake or a viewing. Family and friends have the opportunity to meet in a room, with the deceased in an open or closed casket. Guests can gather to say goodbye to the deceased and express their love, which is an important part of the grieving process.

        Perhaps more importantly, though, it also gives the family an opportunity to express support and show sympathy for each other. Death can be a very isolating experience, but when we show each other that we’re not alone, we process things in a healthier way.  We can band together, express solidarity, and show each other we’re still there, even with the passing of our loved one.

      • Memorial services: This kind of service typically takes place at the funeral home itself. Otherwise, the family may choose to gather at their preferred church or even at their home. We make ourselves available and our plans are completely flexible in terms of location.

        The service itself consists of a ceremony where we help you to celebrate and honor the life of the deceased. How the ceremony plays out is up to you, and you can choose either a unique approach or something more traditional. Everything can be personalized, from the visitation to the funeral service itself. Whatever you need to do to reflect your individual relationship with your loved one, our memorial service options will help you to do.

      • Funeral or chapel services: With these ceremonies, the gathering is held at the cemetery itself. The benefit of this is that it allows the family and friends an opportunity to be there as their loved one is transferred or buried. This is often the last note people need to start the grieving process in earnest. Being able to be there, in person, when your loved one is buried gives the whole process a sense of finality that can start a healthy period of grieving.
      • Green burial: In an increasingly environmentally conscious society, green burials offer a way to minimize environmental impacts when a person passes away. A green burial typically takes place at a conservation cemetery and can include a graveside or funeral service.


Ultimately, a burial or funeral service is an important part of the grieving process, not just for honoring your loved one, but for helping you grieve. Choosing “the right one” is secondary to choosing “the right one for you”. Maybe that means something big and symbolic with all of your friends and family close by. Maybe it means something else. 


Whatever service you choose, Woodward Funeral Homes will be there every step of the way to help make sure you know all of your options and walk you through the process.
