The Axelson Family, which has been known for excellence and innovation in funeral service, is now servicing the Butte Community in a NEW way. We are very proud of our 75 year commitment to serving families. Axelson Alternative Cremation, an affordable alternative to traditional funeral homes, has been established to meet the changing needs and wishes of Butte.

Cremation is a decision that provides as many memorial choices as burial. Cemetery interment, niche committal, scattering, a simple family service or a traditional church service are just a few of the many options available to families. Our service means peace of mind, convenience, and affordability.

Our services include but are not limited to:

  • Removal of the person from the place of their death.
  • The cremation process which is conducted locally at Butte Crematories, the first and most experienced cremation service in Butte.
  • Completion and filing of the death certificate and ordering of certified copies as needed by the family.
  • Completion of all Social Security, Veterans, insurance and union paperwork so that families will receive all the benefits to which they are entitled.
  • Assistance with the compiling and placement of obituaries in local and distant newspapers.
  • Arranging and directing of all remembrance services, funerals and graveside rites, including contacting the clergy, musicians and others to provide a meaningful and dignified life celebration service.
  • Assistance in contacting area caterers and host facilities to arrange fellowship gatherings as part of the remembrance ceremonies.
  • Coordination with an expert provider of memorial brochures and printed materials for the memorial service.
  • Professional yet personal suggestions and expert advice on how to make each service a personal tribute to a life lived.
  • All arrangements are made with licensed morticians who have generations of professional expertise in providing funeral services to the Butte Community.


Identical services offered through a traditional funeral home can cost a family thousands of dollars.
