The idea of Bridges Cremation Service was conceived in 1995 by two young women who were determined to provide a funeral service to people experiencing a loss. They met while working together at a large, well known funeral organization. Both women were uncomfortable with the requirement to sell merchandise and services to families that either didn’t need them or couldn’t afford them. Thus, the Bridges Cremation Service concept was born.
With not much more than their funeral licenses and experience in the industry, the two women embarked on a journey together to build a company that focused on individual attention without high pressure sales. They both firmly believe that the funeral industry should be service oriented, not profit-driven.
Building Bridges Cremation Service has not been easy. There have been times when giving up was a very real and appealing option. However, the founders believed so strongly in the philosophy of their company that they persevered. Today, they continue their commitment to helping those experiencing a loss with compassion and warmth.
