Are there hidden charges beyond the $1,395.00 cremation cost?
No. We have one price that includes everything needed to have a "Simplicity" cremation. Unlike others, we do not have extra costly service fees.

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.
Do Massachusetts Funeral Homes own Crematories?
In Massachusetts, funeral homes are not allowed own a crematory. All Massachusetts funeral home providers must use a fully licensed state approved crematory.
Is it easy to ship cremains internationally?
We are experts in international funeral shipping. Each country has specific regulations and processes in order to receive approval to send cremated remains into a country.
