Why an Onsite Crematory is Important

About 40% of Texans now choose cremation over traditional burial. But even as more and more of our families are finding this is the best choice for them and their loved ones, some people still have questions and concerns. Especially with some of the scandals they have seen in the news in recent years.

At Nalley-Pickle & Welch, we want the families of West Texas to know that if cremation is your choice when you preplan or when you’re at your moment of need, you need to come to us. We can offer you peace of mind, as we guarantee that your loved one will be treated with the highest levels of dignity and respect. How can we make such a promise? Because we own and operate our own onsite crematory. Not everyone can say that. That means that not only does your loved one never leave our care, but that we oversee every part of the cremation process. We ensure all the equipment is state of the art and properly maintained. Our staff is highly trained, and our culture of ethics and compassion permeates everything they do.

We are also the only Cremation with Confidence™ provider in our area. What does that mean for you?

We followed the strict, 10-step Cremation with Confidence™ process, which includes a rigorous set of checks and balances. When we return your loved one to you after the cremation, you can rest assured that it is truly your loved one and no one else.

Most of all, we will link arms with you in creating a celebration of life that will offer healing and bring closure to you and your family. Some people think cremation limits your memorialization options, but we don’t think anything could be further from the truth. With the personalization options offered to you at Nalley-Pickle & Welch, every moment of the visitation or service will be a precious reminder of how special your loved one was to your family and the world around them. Our Welch Reception Center in Big Spring and The Branch Reception Center in Midland offer you the space and amenities you’ll need to host all the people who have come to bid your loved one farewell.

Cremation with Confidence™ and our own, onsite crematory – they’re our commitment to you that we understand and appreciate what a treasure your friend or family member is in your life, and we take every step and precaution to make sure they receive the respect and honor they deserve.
