Family service for nearly 150 years…

“Since 1867, we have been serving the families of Northwest Indiana with kindness and compassion, providing the highest level of funeral care. The funeral industry has changed a great deal since then, so have the needs of our families. We now have more options than ever when choosing funeral services. Cremation, for the first time, is surpassing traditional burial as the right choice for families, and more and more people are looking to create memorials that are private and simple.

South Shore Online Cremation was created to meet this growing need, and it has quickly become the premier simple cremation resource for families in Northwest Indiana.

This website was designed to give families a low-cost cremation option from a trusted local family-owned business. We are not just a cremation facility; we also own four funeral homes with highly trained, award-winning staff members who care for your loved one with respect.

The world around us has certainly changed a lot since 1867, but our standards of service and the compassion we show the families we serve will never, ever change.”

– Larry and Kim Geisen, Owners

Why Choose South Shore?

Your loved one never leaves our care.
Some cremation societies transfer your loved one to a third-party cremation facility. Some even send them out of state. We will never do that. We don’t have to, because we own and operate our own crematory. We also follow a strict identification process, and even allow you view the cremation, if you choose, for the ultimate peace of mind.

Our crematory operators are certified.
Indiana state law doesn’t require that crematory operators be certified. But ours are certified through the Cremation Association of North America, the leading global cremation organization.

Additional services.
While South Shore Online Cremation focuses on making cremation affordable and simple, we know some people need more. Whatever level of personalization you want to bring to your loved one’s farewell, we can make it happen.

Pet Cremation

We know that your pet is part of your family, too. We offer pet cremation services at our local state-of-the-art pet crematory. We have a dedicated cremation unit for pets, and our triple-level identification system sets us apart from the rest.
