Cremation is slowly becoming the more popular option with modern families looking to take care of their loved ones remains. With space in the ground becoming more and more sparse, residents in Ogden, UT can count on Leavitt's Mortuary & Aultorest Memorial Park for a better option. We have been part of the community for over 90 years and understand what your family needs to handle the dearly departed. You will undeniably have questions during this time. If you are unfamiliar with cremation, it is simply a heat-based process of changing a deceased person to ash and particulate matter. The process is clean, safe, and uses no chemicals, so it is more environmentally friendly than embalming. Please do not hesitate to reach out to our staff and ask us anything to help ease the stress of this difficult time or to get help planning ahead.

Leavitt's Mortuary & Aultorest Memorial Park has plenty of years of experience to help develop these to meet all your family's needs and wants.
