A Simple Process

You Asked.
We Listened.

Navigating through the loss of a loved one can be overwhelming. Many people don’t know what happens when their loved one passes and have several questions…

Who do we call? Where does our loved one go? Who handles the death certificate? How long does it take?

How does this work? What’s the process?

You deserve peace of mind with easy to understand options.




  • Your Loved One is Brought Into Our Care
  • Secure Care Center

An Affordable Price

Less Markup.
Great Service.

A common misconception is the more you pay, the more you get. The truth is you’re paying for more markup, not more service.

We believe you shouldn’t have to pay more for cremation at a traditional funeral home. With services starting at $1185, our Simple Cremation fees are hundreds, even thousands less than services elsewhere.
