Valley Cremation Services

Valley Cremation Services began operation in January of 2012. It was started as it became apparent that there was a changing need for after-death care that was not being met at a local level. Valley Cremation Services is wholly owned and operated by the Hayes family.

Regardless of what option you choose - either traditional or cremation, we will attend to your families' needs with the utmost respect and professionalism. By utilizing our own crematorium service we are ensuring that W.J. Hayes & Sons is caring for your loved one through the entire funeral process. As well as the cremation service we are also able to assist with the choice of container or urn as well as commemorative jewelry and keepsakes.

As cremation requests increase in our changing society it is important that we answer any questions or concerns that may arise. Please feel free to approach any of our staff with these and they will be happy to answer them.

Please feel free to browse our pages to learn more about pre-planning a funeral and grief support, as well as the traditional funeral and cremation services that we have to offer.  If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to contact us at anytime, we are available by phone or e-mail  We are always here to help.

We understand that it is not always possible to attend a service or visitation in person, so we encourage you to use our beautifully designed interactive online tributes to pay your respects. Leave a condolence, share a memory, post a photo, light a candle and more!
