Simple, dignified and affordable cremation for all of Iowa.

Iowa Cremation

As funeral costs continue to escalate, more Iowans are turning to simple cremation as an alternative to elaborate and expensive services. Iowa Cremation was founded in 2000 by the third generation of funeral professionals at Cedar Memorial, a family-owned cemetery, funeral home and crematory, with over 85 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.

Unlike other providers, Iowa Cremation serves the entire state of Iowa without charging extra mileage fees. The cost of Iowa Cremation services also includes Travel Protection for those who may need that service. There are no hidden costs, and when you preplan and prefund the cremation, 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.  

Iowa Cremation's Licensed Preneed Counselors can assist with all necessary details for preplanning in your home, at one of our facilities, or a location that is most convenient for you and your family.  Many families also select 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.
