Funeral preparations can bring about tough decisions for families after a loved one passes away, especially if no specifications were left behind.When making the decision between burial services and cremation services in Queens, consult the trained funeral directors at Bergen Funeral Service Inc. to determine what the best option is for you.
At Bergen Funeral Service Inc., we are a family-owned and operated funeral home that has been in operation for 51 years. We understand how difficult of a time you are having when someone you know passes away, so we do everything we can to provide you with compassionate, affordable funeral services that will preserve the memory of the deceased forever.
Whether you choose traditional burial services or cremation services in Queens, our funeral directors will treat you with the utmost sympathy and respect. Our burial services are limited to three types: traditional, graveside and immediate services; however, if you choose cremation, there are a few more options available. We offer direct cremation and cremation with full visitation and a ceremony at the crematory.
In addition to these two types of cremation services in Queens, there are a few other options available after the process of cremation is complete:
- Outdoor niches: Burial in an above-ground columbarium niche
- Personalized memorial: Inscribe the name of the deceased on a park bench or plaque
- Scattering: Freely scatter the remains of the deceased in places that held significance for him or her
- Traditional burial: Bury the urn containing the deceased's remains at the head or foot of a grave in a ground burial or family plot
There are a variety of options to choose from when determining whether you want to go through with a traditional burial or cremation; however, as the years go on, we are finding that cremation is becoming a much more widely used method in terms of funeral services.
