Cremation Services in Brooklyn, NY

The death of a loved one is never easy. However, deciding how to honor their life should not be as stressful. Cremation is a valuable alternative to a traditional burial service. It is a great way to keep your loved one close to your heart and in a special place, and is very flexible. If you are looking for cremation services in in Brooklyn, NY, the funeral directors at Bergen Funeral Service are here to assist you.

Traditional or contemporary cremation services in Brooklyn, NY are often planned before or after the cremation process. A funeral service followed by cremation may be exactly the same as a funeral service followed by a traditional burial. They can be elaborate or simple, traditional or nontraditional. Arrangements and ceremonies tend to be as individual as the persons for whom and by whom they are made.

We Offer the Following Cremation Services in Brooklyn, NY:

  • Complete Cremation Service - just like a complete funeral service except cremation will follow the services, rather than a burial.
  • Immediate Cremation Service – can be arranged as an immediate disposition of the body, but usually followed by a memorial service.
  • Direct Cremation Service – a cremation is provided and funeral services are limited to the removal and transportation of the deceased into our care.
Let us help you honor your loved one's life the best way possible. Our funeral directors are available to help you and answer any questions you may have. Please call us today at 800-262-7901.
