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.

We understand that in this distressing time, legal proceedings and requirements can be a lot to handle. Simple Cremation will be your guide in navigating the documents and permissions required once a family member passes.

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 simple way of ensuring everything will run smoothly for those you leave behind. Simple Cremation of NJ can give you all the tools you need to pre-arrange a funeral and cremation.

We understand that making these arrangements are never easy and encourage you to take your time with it.

With your funeral expenses settled in advance, you can rest easy in the knowledge that your family will not be left with an unexpected expense. A thoughtful final gift to them.

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 misconceptions

It is natural to have questions concerning cremation. After all, it is quickly becoming America’s preferred method of final disposition.To dispel some of the misconceptions around cremation, and leave you with the tools to make the best decision for yourself and your family, here is our take on them.

Cremation is no substitute for a traditional funeral

There is a perception of cremation as a cold and clinical process, detached from loved ones. Nothing could be further from the truth.

The reality is that choosing a cremation affords all the opportunities a traditional funeral does to pay a fitting tribute to those we lose. A family can choose to hold a memorial service with the body present for visitation at a church, funeral home, or crematorium chapel.You can also opt to attend the cremation yourself. If not a Simple Cremation representative will remain on-site until they can visually confirm the process is underway.

Embalming is Required Before a Cremation

The short answer is, no. The more complete answer is that it depends. New Jersey regulation around cremation states that cremation needs to take place within 24 to 48 hours of the time of death. Anything past that time frame will require refrigeration or embalming of the remain. If a viewing is to be arranged, then embalming will be a necessity. We also suggest procuring cosmetic and hairdressing services.

You Have to Keep the Ashes at Home After a Cremation

No, there is a wide range of options to honor your loved one’s remains after cremation.

Following is a list of memorial and interment options available at the Forest Green Park Cemetery in Morganville:

  • Columbarium Niche – A wall containing niches. Niches are small compartments that can hold urns. A Columbarium is usually found in mausoleums, chapels, or cemeteries.
  • Urn Garden – Specifically designated areas within a cemetery for the burial of cremated remains. The remains will be buried within the urn and many Urn Gardens offer space to accommodate grave markers, sculptures, or memorial plaques.
  • Family Plot – Cemeteries often permit the interment of cremated remains of more than one person in a space traditionally allocated for a single casket. This makes family plots a viable alternative to a full-sized vault.
  • Presentation Urns – Presentation Urns, also known as keepsake urns are smaller versions of an urn that hold only part of the remains. They are a popular choice for families that choose to scatter the ashes but what to hold on to something to remember their loved one by.
  • Scattering Gardens – Areas in cemeteries designated to scatter cremated remains in. They will often feature memorial plaques inscribed with names. Some cemeteries offer further personalization such as living memorials (a tree or flower patch) or an entry in the local Book of Memories.

We hope this short dive into how cremations work leaves you a little more informed and with a sense of confidence in choosing us as your funeral service provider.

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.
