About Us

We're intentional about raising the standards for cremation care throughout the entire Quad Cities region. We work exclusively with funeral homes who are interested in offering a higher standard to the cremation families they serve.

Locally Owned & Operated 

Established, owned and operated by a local Licensed Funeral Director, the RiverBend Cremation Center opened in 2012. Conveniently located and ADA-friendly, our facility provides a comfortable, private family room for family viewing or reflection prior to cremation.

Professional, Compassionate Care For All

Being intentional about raising the standards for professional cremation care begins with the proper facility. It also requires a commitment to the most efficient and environmentally-responsible cremation equipment, proper processes, procedures and protocols, and professional, properly-trained people. This intentionality is foundational to Why We're Different from other cremation providers.

Our intentionality to raise the standards also prompted us to establish an entirely separate division to provide our services for some very special members of the family: our pets. 

Known as Quad Cities Pet Cremation, this division of RiverBend assists Pet Parents and Veterinary Professionals alike with complete pet cremation services. We've had to say good-bye to our own pets, too -- and we know how difficult this can be. We believe pets are part of the family, too -- and we think they deserve the very best care when they must leave us. 

Of course, we utilize completely separate equipment for pet cremation . . . but we utilize the same careful processes, procedures and protocols to assure Pet Parents that we're caring for their pets just as we do our own: with love and care and compassion. 

Because we think pets are part of the family, too.

Easy Access

Conveniently located from any direction, our facility offers ease of access from any area of the Quad Cities. We're located on Highway 67 (also known as State Street or River Drive) approximately halfway between the metro I-74 bridge in Bettendorf and the I-80 bridge at LeClaire.
