Offer a gift of comfort and beauty to a family suffering from loss.
A gift to your family, sparing them hard decisions at an emotional time.
It is not always possible to pay respects in person, so we hope that this small token will help.
Caring Cremation Services was founded by Robert A. Scott, a second generation funeral director, in response to the growing need for affordable cremation services. "Cost is...one of the big reasons why the popularity of cremation is soaring", shares Jim T. Miller, syndicated columnist for the Huffington Post. "Roughly 40 percent of Americans now choose cremation, up from 27 percent just a decade ago."
In his online post, "How to Find Affordable Cremation Services," he suggests readers start by comparing the cremation costs of local funeral service providers (and we agree). "Start by calling the funeral homes in your area...and ask them how much they charge for a direct cremation, which is the least expensive option."
If you follow his suggestion, you'll quickly discover that Caring Cremation Services offers your family the lowest cremation costs of any funeral home or cremation services provider in our region. What others call a "direct cremation", Caring Cremation Services identifies as our Simple Cremation package, which includes:
transportation of the deceased from the place of death (within 50 miles)
an arrangement conference with a licensed funeral director in your home
refrigeration of the deceased
filing of all required paperwork
a basic cremation container
the cremation process
a temporary plastic cremation urn
Our Simple Cremation package costs only $700. But it's important to realize that you are not limited solely to the purchase of this cremation services package. We can assist you in planning a funeral or memorial service for your loved one which is meaningful, yet very affordable–ranging in price from $300 for a basic memorial service (not including any additional fees charged by the church, organist, reception hall, funeral home, or any other location), to just over $1,100 for a funeral. Please refer to our General Price List for additional details on other funeral services and products we can provide to help your family in honoring a loved one.
We promise you and your family honesty and compassion–and value–in all we do on your behalf.
