Cremation Pricing: Affordable Options to Suit Your Needs

Cremation can be an affordable option and gives families the option to bury or scatter the remains.

Traditional or modern funeral services can include cremation. When most people think of a cremation, they think it is one decision. There are many options to cremation, including many who choose to bury the cremated remains. They can, of course, be scattered. They can be set adrift at sea. They can even be placed in a mausoleum.

Another option is permanent possession, where cremains are kept by a loved one. The funeral options for cremation are virtually endless. For a detailed list of prices for all cremation products, please call us at (718) 828-1800, contact us online, or visit us at our Bronx funeral home.

About Cremation

Why Choose Cremation Services?

Why cremation instead of a traditional burial? Because cremation is clean and simple. Cremation is an option Bronx families of many faiths and backgrounds now choose. It is also environmentally friendly. Since cremation, much like burial or entombment, is a form of final disposition for the remains of a loved one, there must be a series of options a family chooses while making arrangements at our Bronx funeral home. Some of these options include a traditional cremation, a memorial with cremation and a direct cremation.

Traditional Funeral Service With Cremation

This service option includes a funeral service at our Bronx funeral home which typically includes embalming, visitation, church service, and ends with cremation instead of burial. The cremated remains are then placed into an urn either for the family's possession or for scattering, burial, or entombment.

Memorial With Cremation

This service option includes the cremation of a loved one followed by a memorial celebration, often at our Bronx funeral home. During this time, family and friends can share stories about the deceased, as well as their favorite memories together. You can honor your loved one in whatever way feels right.

Direct Cremation in New York

The direct cremation service is one of the least expensive service options which includes the cremation of a loved one without a funeral service or memorial. With this cremation possibility, you can have complete flexibility with where you wish to keep your loved one's cremains. The remains may be placed in an urn to be buried, kept in a personal setting such as a home, entombed, or scattered.

Bronx, NY Cremation Services

Don't assume that all Bronx funeral homes that provide cremation services are the same.

Ask questions. Do they follow a code of ethics? Do they have a tracking system? How can I be sure the cremated remains I receive are those of my loved one?

Avoid heartache and regret by taking the time to ask questions and learn more about the cremation process. As the leading Bronx funeral home, we follow strict guidelines in ensuring the cremation process is completed seamlessly. Feel free to contact us with any questions. 

Don't make your decision based on price alone.

We at Joseph A. Lucchese Funeral Home know that most families in the Bronx must be cost-conscious, and NY cremation services should be priced within your means. However, making decisions based on price- and price alone- can lead to regret later on. Don't just look for the bottom line; look for the quality you'll receive at our Bronx funeral home.

Make sure they quote you the complete cremation cost.

Some Bronx funeral homes may quote you a low price, but neglect to include the transfer of your loved one to the funeral home in the Bronx, professional service fees, and care of the deceased. Don't wait to discover that not all the cost of cremation were included and your service is less affordable than you were led to believe.

We at Joseph A. Lucchese Funeral Home hope that these descriptions make your decisions regarding cremation much clearer and easier.
On another note, it is important to remember that cremation does not limit one’s ability to celebrate the life of a loved one in the utmost dignified manner. Thus, cremation is not the end-all-be-all type of disposition wherein a loved one is merely cremated and forgotten about.
Let us help you through one of the most difficult times in your life by celebrating, commemorating, and mourning the life of a loved one who has chosen to be cremated.
