Funeral home arrangements, cremations, and other services offered in North Plainfield
These days, funeral homes and cremation facilities in North Plainfield offer so much more than solely the funeral arrangements. Take a look at what we do:
Traditional funeral arrangements: honoring the deceased with a funeral is an integral part of human culture; paying respects, joining together in remembrance, and seeking the beginnings of closure. Gatherings can be held here or at a place of worship, personal home, etc.
Cemetery burial: human burial is an ancient part of human practice. We will help you select the right casket for your loved one, make burial plans, select a cemetery and burial plot, and choose a gravestone or marker and arrange for inscription. Our relationship with local cemeteries is quite strong—this will aid us in this process.
Cremation: this option refers to the way in which you or your loved one has opted to deal with the physical remains. Cremation is the burning of the physical remains and pulverization of the bones fragments into ashes. This can absolutely be combined with any other services.
Direct cremation: this is also known as “immediate cremation.” This excludes any visitation, funeral, or ceremony.
Visitation and ceremony arrangements: we can coordinate a wake, visitation, celebration-of-life ceremonies, etc. This is about you, your loved one, and your family.
24/7 response assistance: need us immediately? We are available ‘round the clock.
Repatriation: we have over 100 years of experience in repatriation. All aspects of the repatriation are handled by our staff, so the family has no burdens here or at home.
Pre-plan arrangements: we encourage those interested in lifting the burden of final arrangements from their next-of-kin to create a pre-plan. This outlines your wishes, includes payment or partial payment (if pre-payment is desired), and makes coordinating your after-death care seamless for those you love. Be in control of all your end-of-life decisions through funeral pre-planning with us.
Veterans funeral services: we want to help you to honor your Veteran the way he or she honored all of us. We offer Full Military Honors, 7-Person Detail, or a Standard Honors Team Detail for eligible veterans.
