Traditional Funeral Service
Traditional type burial includes a funeral service at your church or location of choice. Onsite chapel is available for use in Hilo. We embalm, dress and prepare the body for viewing. There can be either a private or public viewing. You may also purchase a Memorial Package of memorial service folders, thank you cards and matching register book. We have many to choose from and we do all the printing for you. We have caskets in a variety of price ranges. We can also include a graveside service or can conclude the services at the church. Or if you prefer we can do the service only at the graveside.

We offer full body burial at sea. Our services include all transportation and boat fees with room for up to 6 family members or friends to be present for burial. You may have traditional services before on land if desired. We make all the arrangements and comply with required rules and laws. For veterans, you may have a military honors send off.

Bringing a loved one from Oahu to Kona
If your loved one passes away on Oahu and you want them to be brought back to Hawaii for funeral services or burial, Ballard Family Mortuary staff can facilitate this for you. Other island locations may also be available. This can be a substantial cost savings for the family and the advantage of one location taking care of all the details for you.
We also offer our services for care of the deceased when no funeral service is desired, or when the family is gathering elsewhere. We make all the arrangements for burial or shipping and complete the paperwork for you.
