Arkansas Cremation: Arkansas’ oldest and best cremation provider since 1984
Arkansas Cremation. Our name reflects who we are and what we do.
Arkansas Cremation is the solution for families that don’t want or need all the frills of a traditional funeral home. We’re for those who say, “We just want cremation.”
Founded over 30 years ago as the Cremation Association of Arkansas, Arkansas Cremation is the first and oldest cremation-only provider in Arkansas. We offer all cremation options: a simple cremation without a service, a cremation with a memorial service, and a full funeral with cremation afterwards.
We don’t have a large building with fancy cars and lots of high-paid employees. That lets us keep our prices much lower than traditional funeral homes. But our lower prices don’t mean that we sacrifice service. We pride ourselves on creating the best experience possible for our guests.
Once you decide the route you want to take, we will handle every detail for you.
We invite you to visit us in our comfortable Little Rock office, where we will welcome you and talk you through everything in person. If you prefer to call, our number is (501) 975-1002, and one of our knowledgeable staff members will assist you with next steps. Or you can start planning online and call us when you’re ready. We look forward to helping you.
