New Forbis & Dick Company now offers direct cremation service in Greensboro and surrounding communities

Greensboro, NC (PRUnderground) June 3rd, 2014

Gate City Cremations, a Forbis & Dick company, recently began offering affordable direct cremation services for the Greensboro market. The company’s goal is to simplify the cremation process and allow families to pay tribute in a way that befits their loved one.

“A direct cremation is simply a cremation without any additional services from the funeral home,” explains Gate City Cremations’ funeral director Heather Forbis-Grice. “We offer easy-to-understand cremation services without complicated packages, membership fees, or multi-level marketing options.”

Direct cremation is less expensive than what is offered at a full-service funeral home. “We want families to be able to honor their loved ones in ways that matter to them, to customize the memorial or tribute they choose. Without the overhead and expenses of a full-service company, our costs are lower,” says Forbis-Grice, “and that savings is passed on to our clients.”

Although Gate City Cremations offers simpler services, its staff must meet the same licensing requirements as a full-service funeral home. The company also provides modern, comfortable facilities for families to meet with staff to make all necessary arrangements.

Forbis-Grice says that Gate City Cremations is built on the foundation and reputation that Forbis & Dick has earned in the Greensboro community. “We are part of an established family and locally-owned business that goes back over five generations,” says Forbis-Grice. “We may have streamlined the process but we take the same care and pride in what we do. We operate on the Golden Rule principle, that we treat you and your family as we would want to be treated.”

Gate City Cremations’ staff is available 24 hours per day /7 days per week, at (336) 217-1111. Gate City Cremations is located at 307-F Pomona Drive, Greensboro.  For more information on services provided by Gate City Cremations, visit the website,
