Client Reviews


Many people are choosing Davenport IA cremation services as their preferred method of disposition. In many ways, it has become an increasingly reasonable alternative to traditional funeral care. This trend away from the old way of doing things can mostly be attributed to economic reasons and different ways the generations think about death and after care. If you’re evaluating whether cremation is the right choice, be sure to look at the decision in context. Here are several points to review:



Family Matters


The connection through blood relationship is a unique bond. A common identity, rooted in shared roots, can have a strong influence on our way of thing thinking. Family customs and traditions often run deep, and the established way of caring for deceased loved ones can be strong. If you are evaluating cremation service in Davenport, IA as an alternative to a funeral and casket burial, you may find it helpful to talk to your family and extended relatives. If helpful, seek out someone who you trust that can provide a thoughtful opinion to help you make a decision.


Religion and Culture


Many religious faiths and cultures leave the decision to cremate up to families and individuals. A few restrict the practice, or even forbid it, while others promote it. If your family wishes to honor the teachings of a particular faith, be sure to confirm your understanding of the topic. If needed, seek out a spiritual leader to discuss and receive guidance about cremation. Cultural matters can also be discussed, but seek additional insights from family and community leaders.


Financial Concerns


Cremation care can be as little as 25% of the costs of a traditional casket funeral. For many families, this can be the difference between being able to obtain the cost of care or not at all. There are additional services and support you can add to basic cremation service which will drive the cost up to a comparable amount, but it is entirely optional. The cost of service will be different for each provider. It will also vary from place to place. If you’re considering cremation service for future need or immediate help, be sure to shop around to learn what the market price offers. It’s smart to look at the value that each company provides or the price.


Environmental Considerations


Although cremation is not 100% green, by many people’s standards, it is a better choice. In the U.S., about 827,000 gallons of embalming fluids are buried with the deceased each year. These chemicals include formaldehyde, methanol, and ethanol, among others. Cemeteries are filled with these carcinogenic compounds, which are slowly leaching into soils and water sources. High volumes of hardwood, iron, and concrete are also being consumed to fabricate caskets and vaults. The land is being permanently used without a foreseeable end, and future generations will be deprived of this valuable resource. If these are points of concern for you, a cremation service in Davenport, IA may be a good choice.


Personal Thoughts


As you deliberate whether cremation care or funeral burial are right for you, take stock of your personal feelings about each type of disposition. Does one or the other appeal to you more? Do you have a preference for how your body, or the body of someone you love, is laid to rest? Your thoughts and feelings about the decision should also be weighed in the mix.


Flexibility Needs


When a loved one dies and is buried in a fixed cemetery plot, they are inherently “staying put.”  But our mobile society is always on the move. Families and individuals regularly move from coast to coast or across state lines. Cremations give families a choice to keep their deceased loved one near. If desired, the ashes of the person who has died can be taken with them to their new home. At the very least, keepsake jewelry or other memorabilia made with the ash of the deceased can be kept close.


Other families want more options about how they can lay their loved one to final rest. Cremation provides choices in this way as well. Whether families want to keep the ashes at home in a place of honor, or to scatter them in a meaning location, the flexibility and personalization of after care is appreciated by many.

Funeral and Cremation FAQs


What do I do when a death occurs while out of town or away from home?

It’s important that you contact the local medical authorities first (as well as the police, if appropriate), and then make sure to give us a call as soon as possible. We will work with you to make the necessary arrangements to get you and your loved one back home as quickly and easily as possible.


How much does cremation cost?

Our most economical direct cremation costs $1,696. That cost includes transferring the deceased from a local hospital or nursing home to our on-site climate-controlled facility, obtaining all required cremation authorizations, filing the death certificate, and performing the cremation. There is an additional charge of $140 if death occurs in a home. Some families will select a cremation that includes viewing of the deceased in our Reflection Room or a memorial service, which are added services available to you at additional cost.


What if my family wants to have a memorial gathering, service, or luncheon?

While the Cremation Society of the Quad Cities™ does not offer many additional services, a wide range of memorial options are available from our affiliated companies, Trimble Funeral Home & Crematory and City View Celebrations, both located at Trimble Pointe in downtown, Moline.
