About Cremation

Cremation: Something To Consider.

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 environmentally friendly. Since cremation, much like burial and 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 the following:

1. 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.
 

2. Memorial with Cremation. This service option includes the cremation of a loved one followed by a memorial celebration many times at our Bronx funeral home.

3. Direct Cremation. This service option includes the cremation of a loved one without a funeral service or memorial. The remains may be placed in an urn to be buried, kept in a personal setting such as a home, entombed, or scattered.

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 completely seamlessly.

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 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 at the bottom line; look for the quality you’ll receive from our Bronx funeral home. The decision you make needs to be based on value.

Make sure they quote you the complete cost.

Some Bronx funeral homes may quote you a low price, but neglect to include transfer of deceased to the funeral home in the Bronx, professional service fees, and care of the deceased. Don’t wait to discover that not all the costs of cremation were included.

Contact us with any questions.

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.
