Bill Bradley, the founder of Bradley Funeral Homes, first started working in Chatham at the Martenis Funeral Home in 1935. It was located on Main Street in the former Café Beethoven building which isn’t far from 345 Main Street, the current flagship home of Bradley Funeral Homes.
Simple Cremation is a service offered by Bradley & Son Funeral Homes based on generations of feedback from the local community. As the costs of traditional burials rise across the United States, we believe that everyone remains entitled to a professionally handled and dignified farewell.
We also understand that at such a difficult time, a complicated experience with cremation funeral services can easily become the worst experience. That’s why we allow you to arrange everything online, at your own pace, and as your grief allows you.

No Drop-Off Policy
To maintain the highest ethical standards and to protect the crematory industry as a whole, Simple Cremation of New Jersey enforces a strict No Drop-Off Policy.
Our funeral directors personally escort each of the deceased to the cremation facility and do not leave before they have personally witnessed them be placed into the cremation chamber, the door closed, and the cremation process initiated.
Although no law in New Jersey mandates this, we feel we have to be able to call clients and say that we made sure the cremation took place as intended
This policy does not in any way reflect a lack of trust in the crematoriums we work with, in fact, trust is the reason we continue to work with our chosen partners. Rather it is a stand we choose to take in the face of what we consider is far too common practice for many funeral homes across the country. Namely, to call a job finished once transport to the crematorium is complete.
Commitment from professionals who understand what you are going through in such a challenging time and support in your time of grief are what have earned us the trust and respect of the people of Chatham.
Transporting Cremation Remains Via Mail
Simple cremations offer the possibility for remains to be transported directly from the cremation facility to families across the United States. It is part of our standard service and we closely follow any changes in regulation with regards to shipping cremated remains.
(Currently, USPS is the only carrier authorized to do so.)
We are very familiar with their requirements and work with our partner crematoriums to make sure such precious cargo is properly dispatched. Should the remains stay unclaimed for 2 weeks, they will be returned to the crematorium who will either arrange transport once again or arrange a convenient time for you to receive them directly.

After a loss in the family, many legal details need to be worked out. Simple Cremation can help you navigate the list of documents and permissions required when a loved one has passed. Our staff is intimately familiar with the legal procedures you will have to go through and will walk you through them seamlessly, so you can focus on saying goodbye.
