We are one of only six funeral homes in Cuyahoga County to own and operate a crematory on site. Our on-site crematory safeguards your loved one’s identity and ensures they never leave our care.
Jenkins offers several burial options that can be tailored to fit any family’s needs. Earth burial is the most common burial choice in Northeast Ohio. Earth burial is defined as placing your loved one in a casket and burying them in the ground. When choosing earth burial, options to consider generally include your choice of casket, vault, cemetery plot and headstone or grave marker.
You can also choose above ground entombment in a mausoleum, which is a building designed and maintained to be a final resting place.
Jenkins also offers green burial options. Green burials are free from formaldehyde, metal or concrete grave liners and burial vaults. To transport the body of a loved one, caskets, coffins or alternative containers made of biodegradable materials are used. Advocates of green burials take comfort in knowing their bodies decompose and become part of nature.
