Shanidar Funeral Services takes its name from the Shanidar Cave discovered in northern Iraq in 1957. Found at this site were human skeletal remains dating back 60,000 – 80,000 years along with thousands of flower seeds and pollen. It is believed that these flowers were gathered and brought from a distance to be placed with the deceased. There is evidence suggesting a feast was held at the gravesite and stones within the cave appear to mark the burial sites. These are all indicators of the first funeral ceremonies known to man.
Funerals are for the living and provide a way for family, friends and community to come together for support and to share memories, tears and laughter. Funerals are very important in the final acceptance of any death. At Shanidar Funeral Services, we believe every human life is worth living and every death celebrated, just as early man believed. At Shanidar Funeral Services, ”The Tradition Continues.”
