See What Ohio Families Say About Heritage Cremation Society

The staff is amazing. Beverly went above and beyond expected and made the loss of my husband go a little easier. I would recommend Heritage to anyone.

Michele Hunter

Heritage cremation was a great comfort to our family during our loss. Everything was handled efficiently and professionally. All of our requests were met with great care.

Glori Cogan

My family and I were extremely pleased with Heritage Cremation Society. We found that, from our initial meeting with them to our final interaction, every employee treated us with patience, respect and compassion. Making the right plans to do what our loved one had wanted was something that was very important to us to do right and Heritage provided us with the information and guidance that helped us every step of the way. Also, they continually kept us updated with information on the progression of the process which we greatly appreciated. We were encouraged to call with any additional questions or concerns we had at any time. The final interaction with a member of the Heritage staff was the bringing of our loved one’s remains to our home. Beverly was kind, compassionate and very knowledgeable. She took the time to answer every question we had and, again, encouraged us to call with any questions. I will be choosing Heritage to take care of my final wishes and I encourage others to do likewise. The knowledge that the Heritage folks will be the ones dealing with my loved ones at the time of my death is very comforting to me.
