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 Funeral & Cremation Services is the preferred provider for the growing number of people in Central Indiana seeking an Eco-friendly, commonly called a “green funeral", for their loved ones.
Preparation of the Body
Our unique facility is one of only a few in Indiana which utilizes refrigeration.
We use refrigeration to temporarily preserve the body until the service time. It is a common misconception that a body must be embalmed to be buried. We encourage each family to explore all options before making decisions about burial.
ARN Funeral & Cremation Services carries a large selection of biodegradable and earth-friendly caskets. Biodegradable caskets are made from all-natural materials (no plastic or metal), like wood or wicker. Burial will then take place in a cemetery that allows either no vault or a vault without a bottom.
Additional eco-friendly elements can be added to a service with varying degrees to fit one's comfort level. For example, our one-of-a-kind facility is welcoming to families who want to participate in bathing or dressing their loved one.
