Now, we're Offering Online Cremation Process

Arrange a Cremation From Home

We provide our services entirely through an online platform. So you’ll be able to choose and arrange services that fit your needs from the comforts of your own home, without feeling any added stresses. Our interface is simple to use and navigate via mobile, tablet, or Desktop. Our compassionate staff is here to help. If at any point you need clarifications or have any questions, you can contact them directly and they will guide you through the process.

No Drop-Off Policy

To maintain the highest ethical standards and to protect the crematory industry as a whole, Simple Cremation  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 Hamilton.

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.

Cremation Legal Support

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.

Cremation in Hamilton, NJ FAQ

Not all cremations are created equal and as such, not all of them are priced equally. The main factors determining your final costs are:

In the end, the final costs of your cremation mainly depend on your choice of options.

What if family and close friends cannot travel to a memorial service?

We have the web infrastructure needed to host an online memorial service. Distance, availability, and travel restrictions should not be an obstacle to grieving together at such a challenging time. It is a natural human instinct to gather in times of grief and our memorials via video weblink ensure that it remains an option no matter the circumstances.

Is a casket necessary for cremation?

Crematories use what they call temporary containers. These are usually corrugated cardboard or wood boxes, intended to easily combust. You may opt to purchase a cremation casket if you are arranging a viewing. Cremation caskets are the same as traditional ones, just without any metal parts.

Who receives the cremated remains of a family member?

Cremated remain are restituted to the person in charge of arranging the cremation. For a cremation to be authorized, this needs to be next of kin. The next of kin is traditionally the spouse of the departed. If not, their children qualify. If there are no direct descendants, siblings become the next of kin.

If the deceased has previously designated in writing, someone to take possession of their remains, then only they will be authorized to take possession.

Is Cremation ecologically responsible?

Yes, when done correctly. Simple Cremation’s partner in New Jersey: Bradley & Son Funeral Homes LLC, is committed to providing a cremation service that leaves a minimal carbon footprint in line with the 1990 EPA act, without compromising respect and dignity for your loved one.

Why are traditional funerals so expensive?

This is a complex question that we get a lot. A complete answer would offer consideration to plot rental, casket expenses, burial service fees, and embalmment. But as the median cost of burial in New Jersey crosses the $7,500 mark, the crux of it is: people in grief are extremely vulnerable and many funeral homes prey on that.

Burials, just like cremations, need to be arranged quickly after a death. A sense of urgency and obligation towards the memory of loved ones is fertile ground for an upsell. As distasteful as it sounds, it is a sadly common practice. That’s why more and more Americans are turning towards cremation as a means of final disposition. The simpler logistics of cremation automatically bring expenses down. Arranging a cremation online with Simple Cremation of New Jersey isolates you from any pushy salesperson and leaves you in total control of what happens next.

Cremation services are becoming more popular every year, and we understand why. Cremation is an affordable way to honor your loved one’s memory without all the added expenses that come with a traditional funeral. Hopefully, this selection of answers has been useful to you. If you have more questions, we cannot encourage you enough to get in touch with us. Our caring and empathetic staff are ready to answer them individually via email or telephone.
