About Us

The Highest Standards of Identification and Tracking

To maintain the highest ethical standards and to protect the crematory industry as a whole, Simple Cremation of New Jersey enforces a strict Identification and Tracking Process. Our funeral directors and qualified staff personally escort each of the deceased to our licensed and inspected cremation facility, Paradise Valley Crematory in Cresco, PA. Each decedent is labeled with a personal bar code which follows the person throughout the cremation process. These steps help to ensure that the correct person is being cremated and it also safeguards the identity of the cremated remains your family will receive. Commitment from our funeral 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 our client families.

Transporting Cremation Remains Via Mail

Simple Cremation of NJ offers the possibility for remains to be mailed from the service provider 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 funeral homes to make sure such precious cargo is properly dispatched. Should the remains stay unclaimed for 2 weeks, they will be returned to the partner funeral home 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.

Simple Cremation of New Jersey helped me through the worst experience of my life. I never imagined there was a service that would allow me to make cremation arrangements in the privacy of my own home. During my time of grief, your website was not only easy to navigate, but also provided everything I needed to make the provisions for my son’s cremation, at an affordable price. Thank you so much for making this horrific episode endurable.
