We created the Simply Cremation Plan for families who desire a simpler, more affordable cremation option. This plan provides for cremation only and includes no additional services except transfer of the deceased to our funeral home, electronically filing the death certificate, and cremation process. The cremains will be contained in a clear poly bag housed in a black plastic box, housed inside a white cardboard box.
*Eliminating additional services allows us to offer you this low price. Thus, if you choose the Simply Cremation Plan, these following services are NOT provided:
The Simply Cremation Plan requires payment in full upon receiving cremains. For your convenience, we accept the following forms of payment: check, cash or Visa, MasterCard and Discover. A 3% service charge will be applied to credit card transactions.
