Always There When You Need Us

We take care of the details so you can take care of the families.

When a grieving family turns to you and your funeral home for help, they expect you to have all of the answers. When it comes to handling funeral arrangements for those who pass away in your neighborhoods and towns, you are very familiar with the process. But what about making arrangements to return their loved one to your funeral home from far away? What about relatives who live nearby that want to arrange services for their family member who lives on the other side of the country—or the world?


NMS makes sure that you always have the answers.

It’s not every day that your funeral home has to return a body from abroad or handle the cremation of a body many miles away. National Mortuary Shipping & Cremation handles those exact scenarios each and every day. From shipping human remains right down to handling graveside funeral arrangements we can take care of every detail of an out-of-town funeral. We allow you to concentrate on what you do best—making the family feel comfortable and letting them know they made the right decision in trusting you to handle the difficult arrangements.
