There’s a reason we chose the name Iowa Cremation; it’s because we serve communities across the entire state of Iowa including Wapello and all of Louisa County with simple, dignified, and affordable cremation services.

Unlike other providers, Iowa Cremation serves Wapello without charging additional mileage fees. There are no hidden costs; when you preplan the price is guaranteed, no matter how many years pass until the time of death. With dedicated and state-of-the-art cremation facilities in Cedar Rapids and Waukee, our compassionate and experienced Iowa Licensed Funeral Directors can complete arrangements promptly. We offer cremation services for all communities in the Wapello area, including Columbus Junction, Morning Sun, Grandview, Columbus City, Letts, Fredonia, Oakville, and Cotter.

Iowa Cremation’s Licensed Preneed Counselors can assist with all necessary details for preplanning in your home, at one of our facilities, or at a location in Wapello that is most convenient for you and your family.  Many families choose to complete all of their prearrangements by using our simple online preplanning portal that can be found by clicking Become a Member. This online portal allows an easy way for you to complete all of your cremation preplanning and pre-funding and can be used from a computer, tablet or smartphone device.

Consumers in Wapello and Louisa 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.
