Our direct cremation service is our most basic cremation package. A direct cremation refers to a cremation without a funeral service of any kind. Direct cremation consists of transporting the deceased from the place of death, the actual cremation at the crematorium, and the return of the ashes to the family.
Below we break down specifically what we provide with out direct cremation package:
1) The basic services of a Funeral Director which mostly involves the filling our and completion of all necessary forms and paperwork.
- The filing of death certificates
- Notification to Social Security
- Placing obituary in newspapers
- If your loved one was a veteran, we will work with the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs to obtain death benefits.
2) Transportation of Your Loved One
- We will transport your loved one from his/her place of death to our crematorium.
- After the cremation is completed, we will deliver your loved one’s ashes to your home, place of worship, cemetery, or even mail them to you of you live outside of Maryland.
3) The Actual Cremation at Our Crematorium
- Of course, the fee covers the cremation process.
- We have our own crematorium and do not pass the process onto a third party company.
- We have highly trained individuals who we consider to be cremation experts.
4) Fiberboard Cremation Container
- We deliver all ashes in a fiberboard cremation container, unless the family wishes to purchase a more expense urn.
Although cremation is our specialty, we do offer direct burial which has many of the same features of direct cremation service with the main exception being the body will be interred instead of cremated. Please contact us for more details on our direct burial package.
