Elements of Cremation

We are located in eastern Suffolk County, in Center Moriches, but proudly provide our cremation services to those who recently lost a loved one. We provide an array of affordable cremation services, ranging from an onsite chapel to a cremation container. We understand how difficult losing a loved one is, but we aim to make this process go as smooth as possible by providing you with affordable cremation services. There are a few different elements that go into the cremation process.

Cremation Elements

When you are comparing prices and providers for the cremation, make sure that each element you want is included in the price listing. There are, at a minimum, four essential elements of cremation that you should be aware of:

  1. Transportation: The deceased will need to be removed from the place of death and then brought to the crematory or funeral home. The deceased's identity needs to be carefully confirmed at each step of the process.
  2. Storage: Make plans to store the body, because it takes time for the paperwork to be finalized. So, until everything is agreed upon and the cremation services are scheduled, the deceased need to be placed in a cold and secure storage unit until then. The time between death and cremation does vary from case to case, but it typically takes over 48 hours after the death, so be prepared.
  3. Cremation: This is when the deceased body is cremated.
  4. The Return: After your loved one is cremated, the remains will be returned.

Cremation Service Considerations

We aim to provide those looking for affordable cremation services with the ability to choose a type of service that is best for their lost loved one. There are different reasons why someone would opt for a cremation over a burial. Whether you are a family member choosing a respectful way to memorialize your loved one or you are planning your own arrangements, the decision to cremate is a personal one. Here are some factors as considerations in the cremation process:

  • Cremation has become acceptable by the masses
  • People are dying older and choosing cremations themselves
  • Environmental impact is becoming more important
  • Religious restrictions are diminishing
  • Great flexibility in memorialization services
