Consumers in Des Moines and Polk County want and deserve a choice when it comes to death care providers. Iowa Cremation was founded in 2000 as a membership organization specializing in simple, dignified, and affordable cremation services by the third generation of funeral professionals at Cedar Memorial, a family-owned cemetery and funeral home with close to 90 years of experience serving Iowa families who have experienced a death loss. Built on Cedar Memorial’s foundation of compassion, professionalism, and integrity, Iowa Cremation continues the mission by offering simple, dignified, and affordable cremation services to all of Iowa.
