Since 1962 we at Bergen Funeral have been a funeral home in NJ. We offer many services to care for your loved one after they have left us. Today we’d like to discuss all your options when you come to us for support.
For many years, families have been using burial as a traditional way of caring physically for their loved ones. Over the years, we’ve learned something that is very unrecognized yet very valuable. A funeral service most of the time considered by family members as an opportunity to say goodbye to their loved one. It doesn’t have to be a big or an elaborate event, it just needs set a stage for family members to go through the healing process that follows.
Many families prefer burial over cremation and they perform it as a tradition, but even if it is not commonly done in your family, burial is a deeply personal decision made by the grieved family. There are many reasons why people prefer burial over cremation. Some of them include:
- Cremation uses frames to reduce your loved one body to ashes
- Have a neutral location where the family can visit later date
- Geographical or religious practices and preferences.
If burial is chosen, whatever think is appropriate for your loved one, we will be with you to make sure we achieve your preferences and help you plan a burial celebration that suits your loved one, family, friends and most of all your budget. We will make sure you celebrate your loved one life in a comfortable and meaningful manner.
At our funeral home, we offer different types of funerals that you might find right for your loved one. With this list, we have a summary of funeral packages we offer.
Traditional Funeral Service
This type of service involves a casket with the body for services, then later a burial service at the cemetery. This service is mostly held the same day, but includes a visitation a day before the actual burial date.
The Cremation Services
This is a package where the body is cremated after the funeral service, no burial takes place. Cremation occurs either before or after the formal services and the urn if presented to the family to arrange the final resting place. The urn can be buried and entombed depending on the family.
A burial doesn’t have to be an elaborate event since the important part is sharing memories and receive, comfort from family and friends when gathered together. This means you don’t have to break the bank when arranging for the burial of your loved one, a simple ceremony where the lifetime achievements and the personality of your loved one are showcased.
