Funeral and Memorial Services
There is no doubt that funeral services can be quite challenging; the emotional can weigh heavily on everyone involved. At Bradford O’Keefe Funeral Homes, we understand that it can be stressful to plan funeral services. Mississippi residents turn to us for compassionate guidance during this critical planning phase.
Create Healing Experiences
If a funeral service is planned properly, it can help those who remain behind to begin the healing process. A number of factors must go into these major decisions, as a funeral service for the deceased will depend on a number of things, including the religion and preferences of the deceased or the family members of the deceased.
Though the type of services may vary depending on the wishes of the deceased or the family of the deceased, these events always offer the opportunity for family and friends to gather and share memories, emotions, and support. Whether you decide on a formal or informal tone and whether you desire burial services or cremation, Bradford O’Keefe Funeral Homes can help you create a meaningful ceremony that will help you begin the healing process. If you choose to celebrate the life of your loved one on our premises, you can take advantage of our spacious facilities and peaceful grounds as a beautiful backdrop for your thoughtful and unique ceremony.
We have been serving families across the area since the mid-1800s, and we are familiar with cemeteries throughout the Mississippi Gulf Coast. Once you have selected the location of your burial services, our team of cemetery set-up staff will arrive at your chosen cemetery to prepare a dignified and safe venue for the attendees of your ceremony.
While this period in your life can be overwhelming and truly emotional, we know that you will one day be able to look back with fondness at the memories you created during these services. Your options are limited only by your imagination, and we can provide you with guidance in order to help you decide on the tribute you will create for your loved one.

The decision to opt for cremation is a very personal one, but there are a number of reasons why someone might choose this alternative to traditional burial. Cremation is more affordable than other choices, and it allows loved ones to place the ashes of the deceased in an urn or memorial container to be kept in a place of prominence. Alternately, the ashes can be scattered across a specific area that was once dear to the deceased. If environmental considerations are important to your family, cremation may be the best option for you. Bradford O'Keefe Funeral Homes can help you navigate this decision.
