Cremation Services in New Jersey

At Bergen Funeral Service Inc, we have noticed that the number of people choosing cremation services 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 New Jersey cremation services 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.
