Mortuary Shipping

 Are you looking for Mortuary Shipping? Bergen Funeral Service has been providing Mortuary Shipping for many years with compassion and great customer care.

Mortuary shipping can be complicated and is generally done with some assistance, especially with things like planning for the remains of loved ones to be sent back to the family. To pull this off, you might need the aid of someone who has the experience in setting up and executing these complex arrangements.

 It can be really destabilizing when issues with mishandling during the shipping process of remains occurs. It can lead to delays or even a botched funeral arrangement, incurring more avoidable expenses for the bereaved family. This can be hard to manage for the family as they are already burdened with paying for final expenses while emotionally in turmoil.

Mortuary shipping usually comes up in situations when a loved one dies in a state or country and there arises the need to ship the body to another state or country to be cremated or buried. If one decides to have the body cremated first, it will obviously cost less but a number of families would still prefer to traditionally see their deceased loved ones and say their final goodbyes.
Our known shipper status allows our funeral directors to schedule flights for mortuary shipping whenever necessary. We also receive discounts from airlines, which we provide to the family of the deceased.

Included with the body should be the following:

·         Communicable Disease Affidavit
·         Embalmers Affidavit (on funeral home's letterhead)
·         At least two certified copies of the death certificate
·         The burial / transfer permit
·         Authorization forms

Once the body is cremated, the urn must be packed into a wooden box, and with it, the following documents are needed:

·         At least two certified copies of the death certificate
·         At least two certified copies of the cremation certificate
·         The non-contraband Affidavit (on funeral home's letterhead)
The complete name, address and phone number must also be provided of the funeral home that will be receiving the cremated mortuary shipping.

International funeral shipping

Are you looking for International Funeral Shipping? Bergen Funeral Service has been offers International Funeral Shipping for many years with dignity and great customer care.

There are cases where people travel to another country and "kick the bucket" during their stay there. They die far away from home but their family and loved ones want their burial rites to be performed in their own country.

With a more mobile society, this is easy to accomplish. This is where international funeral shipping comes in.

What is international funeral shipping?
There are several international funeral shipping companies that work on the shipment process of traveling the deceased from one state line to another or one country to another. The body is embalmed or stored in dry ice to be shipped. The body is then placed in a casket or suitable container for transportation.

Mode of transportation
The remains can either be shipped by land or by air. Moving the deceased by land transportation is only effective when the distance between the locations is not too far. However, some states have laws that require the body to be embalmed before crossing state lines. There are other states that are fine with the body being refrigerated with dry ice or the usage of a refrigerated vehicle for transportation.

Air transportation is efficient when the distance between states or countries is too far. For example, transporting remains from the US to Nigeria.

A funeral home that offers funeral shipping will have to be in contact with an airline (several airline companies offer human remain cargo shipping). They register the remains and obtain airline freight fees. The remains also have to be embalmed or packed with dry ice and placed in a special air-sealed casket.

As easy as it might sound, transportation of the deceased overseas can be very complex. There are customs laws, consulate forms, import and export legislation, and logistic requirements to meet in order to process a body shipment from the US or another country to the receiving country.

Note that two funeral homes have to be involved. The first funeral home will work out the body shipment with cargo airlines and the second funeral home will receive the body shipment once it arrives safely.

What do international funeral shipping providers do?
International funeral shipping providers arrange and organize everything. The body needs to be transported internationally, they make arrangements to collect the deceased from the place of death and transport them to a funeral facility. They prepare for transportation i.e. sealer casket and an approved receiving country shipping container. They handle all the paper work and flight bookings. They make sure the transportation is speedy and develops no issues or setbacks. They also make sure the deceased gets to the receiving funeral home in one piece.

If the international funeral shipping company is very reliable and there are no complications, it takes about 5 work days to finish the whole process.

Cremation Service in NJ

The Cremation Process
Are you looking for Cremation Service in NJ? Bergen Funeral Service Inc provides Cremation Service in NJ with compassion and dignity for many years and with great customer care.

Cremation process may take two or three hours for completion, usually done in the cremators offered by funeral homes. Cremators usually contain two chambers and a cooling tray, some have three chambers. In accordance with the Health Department Regulation, the coffin is cremated separately in the first chamber, or we may say that only one coffin is cremated inside the first chamber at one time.

After completion of the first chamber cremation process, the relocation of remains occurs in the second chamber to remove the residue from the coffin. Once this process is complete, the remains (commonly known as Ashes) of the corpse are placed into the cooling tray for sometimes for cooling. Once done, the non-consumed metallic content such as coffin nails and joint implants are separated and collected. The process is carried manually and with the help of a strong magnet as well.

Finally, these remains are processed further to get the fine powder. The remains are placed in the temporary container and handed over to the family for disposal.

Prerequisites for Cremation

1- As cremation is an irreversible process, certain prerequisites need to be fulfilled for this process.

2- Filing of required legal documents such as death certificate and permission for cremation from the corpse family.

3- Cremation may have a waiting period of 24 to 48 hours, in some states, as the determination of the death cause is impossible after cremation.

4- Cremation may require the casket or container in specific cases.

5- Cremation containers should be strapping to ensure the protection of operators involved in handling crematory boxes.

6- Remove jewelry items before the cremation process because metals will be damaged during the process.

After having a detailed overview of the cremation process, you might look for the cremation service provider. We at Bergen Funeral, understand your concerns about saving the cost for funeral services, thus, we provide you the cheap cremation services.

Direct Cremation in NJ

Are you looking for direct cremation in NJ? Bergen Funeral Service is a family-owned and operated funeral service, that have been providing direct cremation in NJ for over 50 years with compassion.

Direct cremation involves collection and cremation of the dead body immediately after the death, without waiting for the funeral service. Direct cremation is the simple way where no friends or family are present at the occasions; however, ashes may be returned to the family on request.

  What are the Basic Features of Direct Cremation?
  Direct cremation doesn’t include any funeral or pre-funeral services; instead, it is the modest option with the limited services:

1- The local pickup or transportation of a deceased person from the place of death to the direct-cremation funeral home or crematory.

2- Filling and completion of all the required legal documents such as death certificate and authorization for cremation

3- The body is respectfully placed in an ‘alternative container’- a thick-walled cardboard box having a lid.

4- The actual cremation of the body in the cremation chamber. Also known as retort or cremator, it is an industrial furnace designed for fragmentation of the body.

5- The return of the cremated remains (Ashes), by the funeral home to the family of a corpse, in a cremation container- a cardboard box or simple plastic.

Why Choose Direct Cremation?
As discussed earlier, direct cremation is relatively cheap and bears less cost, but there are certain benefits of cremation beside cost such as;

1- No need to bear the expenses of the funeral event.

2- No need to buy an expensive casket, funeral home takes the body and places it in a cardboard container.

3- Since there is no public event; the public view of the body by family and guest, you don’t bear expenses for corpse preparation.

4- It provides you great flexibility as you don’t need to schedule the pre-burial funeral event. Funeral home takes care of everything.

Direct cremation not only saves your time and gives you flexibility, but also saves a significant amount of money. You may use it later for the celebration of life or memorial service.
