Our Burial Services

Understanding Burial Services

Here at Southern Mississippi Funeral Services, we have the deepest respect for this traditional practice. If you are interested in learning more about the burial services we offer, please review the following information. Should you have questions about anything, please call us at (228) 872-3637.

There are many things to consider when deciding whether to bury a recently-deceased loved one, or when selecting burial during funeral pre-planning. One of the first decisions you'll need to make involves choosing both the cemetery and the specific place of burial within its grounds. You'll then need to select a casket and possibly a burial vault, as many modern cemeteries require their use. At some point, and this does not have to take place right away, the decision becomes one of selecting the headstone or marker and writing the inscription. A member of our professional staff will be available should you wish to have assistance in making each of these decisions.

We offer minimum burial services as well as burial packages.

Our minimum burial, which is a direct burial with no funeral services, includes the following:

  • Basic services of funeral director and staff
  • Removal of deceased from place of death to funeral home within a 35 mile radius
  • Transportation to cemetery
  • Hygienic bathing and disinfecting of deceased
  • A brief viewing of the deceased prior to burial. This is limited to immediate family only, maximum of 10 people.
