There are few things that cause more emotional trauma than the death of someone you love. Even when the death is anticipated, you’re never truly prepared. At The Cremation Society, we understand that this is an emotional time for you, so we’ve prepared this section to guide you through the process of making your arrangements online.
Please note, we work exceptionally hard to keep our prices affordable. As such, everything you need to make your arrangements online can be found on this website. We realize that there are times when families need extra attention. For those families who want additional help making arrangements, whether planning ahead or at the time of need, we offer in-person consultations for an additional fee. If you’d like to come meet with us at one of our offices during business hours, the consultation is $195. If you’d like us to come to your home, the consultation is $295.
Any of our cremation packages can be easily customized to meet the various needs of the families we serve.
