S&S Cremation Services
Jeff Stout and Bill Shirley, co-owners of S & S Crematory Services, opened Howard County's first crematory, located at 1315 W. Lincoln Rd. in Kokomo, in 2010.
We are the only funeral homes in Howard County offering onsite cremation. With our
S & S Cremation Services, your loved one never leaves our care. This offers security and peace of mind when considering cremation. It also eliminates the expense of shipping remains to Indianapolis for cremation and cuts down on the time involved for returning cremains to the family.
“In the past, we have used a service based in Indianapolis, but the time lag, not to mention the transportation costs, have driven the need for a local crematory,” said Shirley. “This facility will be serving all five of our locations, which includes Stout & Son Funeral Homes in Russiaville and Burlington, Hasler-Stout Funeral Home in Greentown, and Shirley & Stout Funeral Homes in Kokomo,” Shirley added.
“People are more comfortable with having things done locally and when we can tell families that their loved one is in our care until we return the cremains to them, I think there is peace with that for family members,” Stout continued. The business also installed a pet crematory as well as one for human remains since more and more people are asking for pet cremations following the loss of a beloved pet.
Paws at Rest
Our funeral homes are proud to also offer cremation services for pets, offering a full line of urns and memorial products for any domestic animal.
As pet owners, we acknowledge the attachment one feels toward a family pet. When one loses a beloved pet, it is like losing a member of the family and we recognize the need for some closure on the part of pet owners. We began offering pet cremation services in 2005 and have seen the need grow through the years. Our pet cremations start at $160.00.
Following pet cremation, a wooden container with a personalized name plate is returned to the family with the cremains along with a paw-print and a lock of fur laminated in a bookmark. Since we offer onsite cremation, our turnaround time is less than 36 hrs.
