At Aaron-Ruben-Nelson Mortuary the community’s safety is of paramount concern. We will be following the guidelines set forth by the Government with regards to social gatherings. Currently, Hamilton County has limited in-door gatherings to 25 people, who are masked and practice safe social-distancing protocols. We are adhering to this policy.
Additionally, some clergy have indicated they will officiate at graveside services only, and limit attendance to immediate family. We will update you with the most current information we have at the arrangement conference, as this is a rapidly changing situation.
We offer streaming services, at no additional charge, so that all extended family, friends and colleagues may share in this special memorial of your loved one.
ARN is the preferred provider in Central Indiana for eco-friendly, “green” services, as well as Buddhist, Sikh and Hindu services because we have a one-of-a-kind facility.
Preparation of the Body
ARN is one of the only funeral homes in Indiana with refrigeration. This preserves the body until the time of the cremation and therefore removes the need for other preservation techniques such as embalming.
We have a crematory in our building and can therefore control all aspects of the cremation. This allows us to minimize our environmental impact and maintain our certified cremation process. We also have a cremation viewing room so families can be present at the time of cremation if they wish.
Traditional urns are made of metal and hardwoods that are not biodegradable. We offer eco-friendly urns designed for scattering, burial, being the foundation of a tree, or sinking into a body of water. These come in many different designs and are made from natural materials such as hemp and rock salt. Please feel free to stop by our display room for more examples and personalized advice.
All Faith Practices Welcome
Our unique facility allows for other rites, such as bathing and dressing before the cremation. ARN is well-versed in all faith practices and welcomes special requests.
We have put together pricing for typical services that involve a service with cremation and additional faith specific requests. These are meant to be a guide and we always work with our families and to accommodate their unique situation.
