Spilsbury Mortuary is proud to arrange for the provision of military funeral honors on behalf of those who have served our country. It is a way to show our nation’s deep gratitude to those who, in times of war and peace, have faithfully defended our country. This moving and ceremonial paying of respect is the final a grateful nation can provide to the families of veterans.
Our staff will proudly help you understand what honors are available, terms of benefits, and additional funeral service details. We are proud to have conducted numerous services on behalf of the veterans in our community. We invite you to view our gallery of photos of our local veterans who volunteer their lives for their country.
We can assure you that your loved one will receive the ceremony and tribute to which they are entitled. We cannot express enough gratitude to these veterans. We hope, though, that our service to your family is a testament to our sincere appreciation.
We will assist you in obtaining memorial certificates and burial flags for veterans.
