Welcome to Memorial Alternatives

Memorial Alternatives is a fully licensed cremation and burial center.  Our costs are less than a traditional funeral home.  We offer basic facilities for arrangement purposes.  Our goal is to offer dignified services at a reduced cost.

Memorial Alternatives is owned and operated by Brookings-Smith.  We are an independent locally owned and operated company that has roots in our community.  Brookings-Smith also operates Pine Grove Crematorium where the actual cremation will take place.  Many people we serve take comfort knowing that our professional staff sees the cremation process all the way through.  If a small gathering or memorial service is desired there is a Remembrance Center at Pine Grove Crematorium that can accommodate up to 40 people.

In order to provide dignified services at a minimal cost we require payment in full time at the time of consultation.  No cremation or burial services will be completed until this payment is made.  Payment can be accomplished by cash, check, or credit card (MasterCard, Visa, or Discover).
