Home Funerals

What is a home funeral?

Home funerals were quite common in the United States until the mid-20th century. A family can manage a home funeral themselves or can work with a licensed funeral director.

A home funeral must follow all the appropriate legal requirements of the state of Florida. For your convenience, the Florida State Statutes are listed here.

Please note that Prairie Creek Conservation Cemetery is licensed only to provide burial services.
