Are there additional charges beyond the $1,295.00 cremation cost?

No. We have one price that includes everything needed to have a simple direct cremation. Unlike others, we do not have extra costly service fees. Our complete service includes our professional transportation team picking up your loved one, all necessary city/state/federal paperwork, crematory fee; delivery to and pick-up from a licensed, Massachusetts crematory, cremated remains container, all of our professional services and pick-up of cremains, all for $1,295.00. You may add additional services, ie: copies of death certificates, obituary announcement in newspapers and memorial and church services.

Are there other cremation services available if we desire?

There are of course additional services that you can do without a funeral director, they are not required and can be done on your own. Newspaper notices, purchase of a personalized urn, death certificate, certified copies, memorial services, scattering of ashes at sea, and shipping of remains are a few additional services that we will be happy to advise you or your family.

Are cremations done individually? When after death can a cremation take place?

All cremations in Massachusetts are done individually. We have always used fully licensed Massachusetts Crematories. In Massachusetts, there is a 48 hour waiting period before cremation.

What forms of payment do you accept?

We accept insurance, all major credit cards, checks, cash, Massachusetts state assistance, and Veteran services benefits. We review with you every possible and available benefit.

Can I pre-plan and pre-pay for a simple direct cremation?

Definitely, all you need to do is contact us. The cost of the cremation is guaranteed and will not change. The cost of your cremation is protected from inflation. Once you complete the $1,295.00 arrangements, there are no additional charges.
