Guidelines for Choosing a Cremation Services Company
In an ideal world, you would be able to pre-arrange for a cremation. You’d take all the time you need to make the right decisions for your family, and your finances.
That’s not always possible.
Yet, whether you are pre-arranging a cremation, or faced with the loss of a loved one and have immediate need of cremation services, you really should take the time to verify the quality of their policies and procedures.
Quality Cremation Care…It’s Got Little to Do with Price
In our experience, it is never wise to base your decision solely on price. You should work only with a cremation company whose policies and practices reflect:
Professional care of the deceased
Compassion for the living
An atmosphere of respect at all times for all involved
To assist you in selecting a trusted cremation provider, we suggest the following:
Consult the Better Business Bureau website and complete a search for the BBB accredited crematories and providers in your area.
Visit the website of, or call, the agency in your state which governs crematories and cremation providers to determine if any complaints were filed by dissatisfied families.
Check with social review websites such as Yelp, Citysearch, or MerchantCircle, to read what others say about their services.
Talk to your friends, neighbors, co-workers or members of your church congregation to learn who they’ve trusted in the past.
Check out our list of questions to ask a cremation provider. And be sure to ask each and every question of every cremation provider you contact–including us.
