Cremation Services

At Bergen Funeral Service Inc, we have noticed that the number of people choosing cremation has increased significantly in the past few years, yet cremation is a long-standing tradition that remains largely unchanged.

What is done before or after the cremation is up to the survivors, or up to you. You can relieve the burden of these decisions by pre-planning your arrangements in advance so that your wishes will be honored. Contrary to what some people believe, cremation does not limit choices, but, in fact, increases one’s options. It is a process which is performed in a respectful and dignified manner and can be memorialized in many ways.

Traditional or contemporary cremation services in NJ are often planned before or after the cremation process. A funeral service followed by cremation may be exactly the same as a funeral service followed by ground burial. They can be elaborate or simple and traditional or nontraditional. Arrangements and ceremonies tend to be as individual as the persons for whom and by whom they are made.

There are three types of cremation services that we offer:

  • Complete Cremation Service- just like a complete funeral service except cremation will follow the services, rather than a burial.
  • Immediate Cremation Service – can be arranged as an immediate disposition of the body, but usually followed by a memorial service.
  • Direction Cremation Service – a cremation is provided and funeral services are limited to the removal and transportation of the deceased into our care.

Our cremation services in NJ allow families many choices for memorializing a loved one. We offer the following memorialization options for cremated remains:

  • Scattering - your loved one’s remains may be scattered freely within a dedicated, natural environment. There are also certain services which offer scattering among the sea or the stars.
  • Traditional Burial - in ground burial on a family plot – Urns may be buried at the head or foot of a grave site.

If you have any questions about any of the cremation services in NJ that we provide, please don’t hesitate to give Bergen Funeral Service Inc a call at 1-800-262-7901.
