General Info:
We recently served an Upper East Side family. Prior to calling us, they called a large, corporately-owned funeral home that is located in their neighborhood. The director who answered their call quoted a price for a direct cremation of over $8, 000.00. He then explained how their fees reflected the size of their building, the reputation of their business ( we could debate that ), and their large staff. Fortunately, this family thanked the director for his time and they called City Funeral Service. Ask yourself a question: Do you really need a large building, a staff of 30, and a firm that must satisfy the insatiable financial appetite of Wall Street to provide a direct cremation service for you? Most people answer this question with a resounding "no." In times of economic uncertainty, paying $1, 000.00, $3, 000.00, or $7, 000.00 more for a direct cremation service doesn't make sound financial sense. In fact, it's downright irresponsible. Think about it. Don't be intimidated by our address. Yonkers is within 30 minutes from every borough except Staten Island. Our facility is also convenient to Long Island and, naturally, all cities and towns throughout Westchester county. Remember that all of the documents required to authorize and pay for a direct cremation can be forwarded to you via FedEx or Express Mail service.

Overall
Why cremation makes sense

My brother's wife died in hospice in Westchester County this past April. Since he and I are both Physicians, we understood what was happening but we hated watching her ilness reduce her to a skeleton of her former self. We have a family plot in a cemetery on Nantucket but he informed me it was not only her wish to be cremated, but with everything she had gone thru during chemo, an earth burial would be like pouring salt in his Wife's wounds. While Frank's children weren't hot on the idea, they conceded this was the best way to go. The Funeral Director at City Funeral Service in Yonkers guided us through the steps of a direct cremation and let us know what to expect before and after Paula passed. He personally came to Hospice in the middle of the night (in the rain) to pick my sister in law up and a few days later returned the ashes to Frank's Home in Somers. I can't remember the last time my family used a Funeral Home but even some of my staff said that level of service is beyond what most homes do for their clients especially if they want a direct cremation. We're planning to bury Paula's Ashes at our Family Plot over the July 4th holiday and Peter from City Funeral Service made those arrangements with the Cemetery as well. Frank found them from a google search on my iPhone in the Hospice Room so I guess the internet IS useful after all. I suggest this type of service to anyone and cremation will definitely be my final wish as well.
