Our History

Our History

Midland Cremation Society was established in 2008 after we discovered there was a need for discounted cremation services in the Joplin area.  Our focus is to provide families with quality services at a low cost.                                                                                                        Our unique arrangement area makes it simple and easy to plan cremation services and select desired merchandise.  We offer a full line of cremation caskets, urns, keepsake urns,  urn vaults, video tributes, stationary, prayer cards, and keepsake jewelry.  
Although our main focus is cremation, we also offer burial options and can accommodate any and all of your needs.
