Located in Provo, Utah with offices in Orem, Park City, and Heber City, Utah, Nelson Family Mortuary offers funeral, burial, cremation, and memorial services. The company was founded by Lance Nelson who received his degree from Mt. Hood Mortuary College in Portland, Oregon. All Nelson Family Mortuary facilities are designed with family in mind, creating comfortable spaces with modern technology and amenities to provide a good environment for all services.
Since funeral and burial planning isn’t something many people have experience in, Nelson Family Mortuary has created how-to guides for planning a funeral, graveside service, cremation, and more. These guides, with helpful infographics, help families remember all the important aspects of planning a memorial service for their loved one.
For those who are thinking ahead, Nelson Family Mortuary’s website also has pre-planning checklists. These checklists can help people feel prepared for their or their loved one’s funeral service or cremation service before the event happens.
Nelson Family Mortuary’s website details all pricing package information for any type of funeral or crematory service. Some packages include a visitation service the day before or the day of, while other simpler packages include only graveside services. In addition, when the casket and vault are purchased from Nelson Family Mortuary as well, the package price will be discounted.
If a family has made funeral arrangements and decides to transfer the services to a different funeral home, Nelson Family Mortuary will honor those arrangements at no cost. The family has to fill out some forms before the funeral can take place, but they may receive help from Nelson Family Mortuary’s pre-need transferring services.
In addition to a standard funeral or cremation, Nelson Family Mortuary offers extra services (for additional cost). These include webcasting of the funeral, memorial photo books, and obituary and newspaper services. Nelson Family Mortuary also partners with a local florist for floral delivery. These services can be bought in addition to standard funeral packages if the family desires.
While Nelson Family Mortuary is located in Provo, Orem, Park City, and Heber City, Utah, the Park City and Heber City locations don’t have all the services available that the Utah Valley location does.
At these smaller locations, families can plan funeral services with a funeral director, but they must be held at a different event center. The Utah Valley location is large enough to accommodate gatherings for different types of events, but the smaller locations are mainly used to prepare and are not venues to house events.
