The facilities that C.T. Life Tributes run are designed to appeal to guests. The website has photos of the facilities that guests can view before planning a funeral with the company. The venues look like a comfortable personal residence, giving a homey feeling to guests.
C.T. Life Tributes offers an online form to start the funeral planning process from the comfort of home. Anyone can start filling out the form at any time and a funeral director for C.T. Life Tributes will reach out. This form makes it easier for someone to provide all the necessary information because someone can fill it out while at home with all important documents and information handy.
C.T. Life Tributes offers pet services to help families honor their pets that have passed away. Families can choose to have an individual cremation service and receive their pet’s ashes or a group cremation and leave the ashes to be scattered on a private area of the property.
A green burial, or natural burial, is an environmentally friendly alternative that C.T. Life Tributes offers instead of a traditional funeral and burial. Traditional burials put toxic embalming fluids, metal vaults, and concrete caskets in the ground and aren’t good for the environment. Green burials are often less expensive than traditional burials and allow the body to be returned to the earth in a biodegradable casket without embalming fluid. Green burials may still include a graveside service, but the casket is made of tasteful, biodegradable material and closed.
C.T. Life Tributes offers several different plans for both cremation and funeral services. These plans, however, don’t vary a lot in price. This can be great on the high end, but there aren’t many low-cost options for families on a strict budget. The website also states that a family could plan a customized funeral service, but prices would vary.
