A common misconception about the cremation process is that it precludes a funeral service or visitation. Not only are such tributes possible with cremation, they are essential to the healing process. The funeral directors of Black’s Funeral Homes offer numerous cremation packages that allow families to commemorate their loved ones in a proper manner. They also custom-design packages to meet the needs and financial constraints of today’s price-conscious families. They provide visitation, funeral and memorial services to families who have decided to cremate a deceased loved one. They charge discounted prices when the cremation casket or the alternative container used is purchased from them. They also provide direct or immediate cremation services that lack any viewing. Please note that a person with legal right must identify the deceased at the place of death or have an identification viewing as per Maryland law. The direct cremation package is available with or without a standard alternative container.

In regards to visitations and funerals, the funeral professionals of Black’s Funeral Homes have packages that include the basic services of the funeral director and other staff, the local transfer of the departed to their funeral parlor and the use of staff for the viewing and funeral service. They also provide the best in embalming, dressing, casketing, cosmetology and memorial merchandise. They have a wide range of beautiful caskets and concrete vaults available, and families are invited to look them over on the Black’s Funeral Homes' website.

One of the burial packages offered by this funeral home is the Graveside Burial Package which includes the graveside services of the Black’s Funeral Homes' staff. They have two other burial packages. All three are available in Silver, Gold and Platinum and offer lowered pricing if the casket used is purchased from them.
