Affordable Cremation Services

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 $1285.00, our Simple Cremation charges are hundreds, even thousands less than services elsewhere.

Traditional Funeral Homes can charge thousands of dollars for a Direct Cremation in Rochester, it’s just not right.

Additional Expenses

In addition to the services that Rochester Cremation offers, there are additional expenses to consider. These services are cash advance charges, simply put, third-party expenses that may be paid by us as a courtesy of your family. Cash advance items will be billed at the same amount paid by Rochester Cremation.

Common examples of cash advance items include:

Crematory Fees -

In New York State, funeral homes are not permitted to own or operate crematories, therefore we are required to use third-party crematory operators. There are three crematories in Monroe County--Rochester Crematory, White Haven Memorial Park Crematory, and Mt. Hope Crematory. The cost of cremation in NY starts at $320 for the cremation process. Other fees apply for use of their facilities for a final goodbye, etc.

Newspaper Notices -

Most newspapers charge for printed obituaries. The costs are directly related to the amount of content in them. The average newspaper notice in the Democrat & Chronicle is approx. $200-$400 per day of insertion. Rochester Cremation provides an online obituary, including a photo at no charge.

Certified Copies of Death Certificates -

Certified copies of death certificates are issued by the Monroe County Office of Vital Records. The cost is $30 per certified copy.
