What Makes Us Different

Welcome to Mid-Ohio Valley Cremation Society

A growing number of families are choosing direct or simple cremation over more-costly traditional funerals. Mid-Ohio Valley Cremation Society is committed to, and focused on, providing cremation at an affordable price, without sacrificing dignity and professionalism.

Unlike traditional funeral homes, with our society, simple cremation is the only service we offer.  That is our specialty, and it allows us to offer those services very affordably.

MOVCS is an organization made up of members who want affordable, simplified services. Families understand that cremation is becoming an increasingly-preferred practice for four primary reasons:

Financial: you can save substantially by choosing simple cremations, compared with more elaborate services with a traditional funeral home.

Fewer Difficult Decisions: cremation packages are easy to understand, unlike a traditional funeral home that overwhelms you with many service options. Our simplified services can easily be arranged online in a stress-free environment.

Convenience: due to many families being scattered out of the area, families have more time to schedule gatherings at their convenience, when everyone can come together.

Environmental: reduces the expansion of land for cemetery use and avoids burial of concrete and caskets into the ground.
