Our $550 Affordable Direct Cremation Services
Metropolitan Funeral Chapels, Inc. offers Affordable Direct Cremation Starting At $550.
Direct cremation is a disposition option in which the body is cremated in the days immediately following the death, without a funeral service beforehand. Direct cremation services are the most economic & affordable option for disposition, as the most expensive purchases - casket, preparing the body, funeral service, extensive transportation - are avoided.
The Preliminary Direct Cremation Package Includes:
Removal of the body from place of passing (within Monroe County)
Arrangement conference with licensed funeral director, filing of all necessary paperwork including Social Security Form, Death Certificate, Cremation Authorization Form, VA Benefit Applications, help with Obituary and Memorial Donations
Transfer of deceased to the crematory
Alternative container for cremation
Return of cremated remains in a temporary container
Free posting of Obituary on our website
If you are interested in our affordable direct cremation in Rochester NY but want to have a formal service as well, that service will likely take the form of a memorial service at a later date, which eliminates the need for an expensive casket and funeral arrangements. If you want to have a service before the cremation, you will not be planning a direct cremation, but rather a traditional cremation service.
