For the foreseeable future, Crescent Tide Cremation will no longer be involved with public funerals/visitations due to the increased risk of spreading/contracting COVID-19. This does not change anything for 98% of our current customers who use our services for cremation, and then may or may not have a memorial service/gathering on their own at their church or elsewhere. We will still be available by phone 24/7 and, if necessary, by appointment at our office.

Peace of Mind

The time of death can be a very stressful time for survivors. Not only is there grieving, but there is often traveling, legal issues, and many decisions that must be made in a short period of time. Pre-planning funeral/cremation arrangements with Crescent Tide is a way to reduce the number of tasks that must be completed by the survivors at the time of death and add peace of mind beforehand. However, whether or not the funeral arrangements are made with a funeral home, it is best to communicate plans and expectations with family members.

Financial Concerns

Funerals rank as one of the largest purchases consumers make. Therefore it is often helpful to plan ahead financially as well. Funeral and Cremation Providers are not allowed to hold money in advance (this is for the consumers protection). Services are prepaid by setting up an irrevocable trust with a financial institution so that the money is protected in case of of a Medicaid spend-down situation. Crescent Tide will assist in setting this up (we work with United Heritage) and Crescent Tide guarantees prices for services to protect against possible price increases.
