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.

Bar Code System

This is an internal system that is managed by our funeral service management software. We track the decedent from arrival at the funeral home care center, transporting to the crematory, date stamped when the cremation takes place and finally placement of remains in an urn and returned to the family. The website will not be a part of the barcoding process.

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.

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.

You can opt to attend the cremation if you so desire. Strictly speaking, this isn’t a necessity. Celebrating the life of your loved one is usually the purview of memorial services.

Simple Cremation will always have a funeral director present to witness the start of the cremation process. That way we can inform you with certainty that your wishes have been carried out to the letter.

The cremation process itself takes anywhere from 45 to 60 minutes. The remains are incinerated by flames reaching up to 2000 degrees. For safety purposes, the cremation chamber is cooled for several hours before it is opened again.

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.

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.

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.

Yes, when done correctly. Simple Cremation’s partner in New Jersey: M. William Murphy Funeral Home, 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.

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.

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.
