The Cremation Society of Minnesota and First Memorial Funeral Chapels began as a single family run funeral home in south Minneapolis.  Today we have grown to become Minnesota's largest funeral and cremation provider, still while being a family owned and operated company with a daily hands on approach.  

At the time of death, from transporting your loved one into our care, throughout the funeral and cremation process, our staff and funeral directors will be directly assisting survivors.  We have simplified the process so that survivors only have to make one phone call to handle all the steps throughout the process and our staff is available 24 hours a day.  By keeping things simple and controling all the aspects from start to finish, we've been able to keep costs down and in most cases save families thousands of dollars by choosing our services versus those of a local funeral home.  

Our web site answers many common questions and is filled with resources to help with many others.  

Please call or email us so we can talk to you about your specific needs.
