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 procedure is not intended to convey a lack of faith in the crematoriums with which we have developed long-term relationships; it’s actually because we trust them. It is, instead, a stand we make against what we believe is too often seen in the funeral industry. To be precise, to conclude a project before transportation to the crematorium is finished is something that many funeral homes across the country do.

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 Matawan.

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.

Our experienced staff will expedite any permissions required on your behalf and make sure things are in order with the state so you have the time to start processing your grief.

Prepaid Cremation

Prepaid cremations are a straightforward method to make sure everything goes according to plan for those you leave behind. Simple Cremation of New Jersey can help you plan your funeral and cremation.

We realize that making these arrangements is never simple, and we encourage you to go at your own pace.

With your funeral costs paid ahead of time, you can relax knowing your family will not be left with an unexpected expense. It’s the perfect way to say goodbye to them.
