Cremation Options in New Jersey

What is Cremation?

Part of making plans for after death, whether for yourself or a loved one, is determining how the person will be put to rest. One such option is cremation – the process by which the enclosed deceased is placed in a cremation chamber where, through heat and evaporation, the body is reduced to its basic elements. These elements are referred to as “cremated remains.” The remains are not ashes, but bone fragments. After preparation, these elements are placed in a temporary container that is suitable for transport. The cremains are often placed in an urn that can be customized to embody the person who has passed away, and then put to rest in a place where family members and friends can visit and reflect on the person’s life.

Cremation is not the final disposition, but serves as the preparation for “memorialization.” An integral part of our recovery from loss is the need to see and know that our loved ones are in a place where we can return to remember and honor their memory. That’s why many of us display pictures in our homes of loved ones that have passed away. Cremated remains can be put to rest above-ground in a mausoleum or interred below-ground. At Memorial Properties, our family is here for yours during this difficult time, and will ensure that all of your needs and wishes are met.

Pre-Planning Cremation Services in NJ

No one enjoys the thought of death, despite the fact that it is an inevitable part of life. Making burial arrangements after someone has passed away adds stress to an already trying time, and the best way to avoid this is to make your arrangements in advance. Pre-planning your arrangements has many benefits, including saving your family costs in the long run and providing peace of mind for everyone involved. Pre-planning also ensures that all of your wishes will be honored, because you will be able to choose how and where you would like to be buried. When you work with Memorial Properties, we will guide you through each step of the process, so you can make the right choices for yourself and your loved ones. We believe that today’s wisdom is tomorrow’s peace of mind, and we follow this philosophy to help serve NJ families in the best way possible.

How Much Does Cremation Cost in NJ?

At Memorial Properties, we are transparent with each family that works with us, so we will be clear about pricing for burial from the beginning of the process. Cremation is an excellent option for burial, as it is more cost-effective than a traditional burial. Those who choose cremation or above-ground burial are able to avoid many of the additional costs that are associated with an in-ground burial, including the digging of the grave, vaults, lot maintenance, and more. 

We understand the financial demands associated with the occurrence of a death, which is why we do whatever we can to make our burial services affordable for those who work with us. Families that set up an appointment to meet with a counselor at Memorial Properties will receive a certificate of credit up to $1495 to put towards an above-ground space, in-ground interment space, or community bible niche. Please contact us by calling 732-820-0211 to learn more.
