Why Choose Us


Why Choose Us?

Choosing a cremation provider is an important decision. How do you know who to trust? What do they charge? Certainly cost is a factor. But do lower prices equate with lower standards of service? Not if you choose the right end-of-life provider.

We firmly believe we’re the best service option for those seeking a trustworthy provider at an affordable price. To convince you, however, we’ve listed below the reasons that make choosing the Cremation Society of New England the smart choice for your family:

  • Specialist cremation provider
    Unlike most funeral directors, our licensed staff are dedicated to providing cremation services. We do not offer burials, visitations or memorials. You can be sure you and your family will receive the specialized care you are looking for.

  • Convenient online arrangements
    You can plan and purchase a cremation without leaving the comfort and security of your home or being subjected to sales pressure. Everything can be arranged through our website. You will never be encouraged to purchase more than you need or desire.

  • Huge savings on funeral costs
    We typically save our families 40 – 60% compared to the local, traditional funeral home. Our optional merchandise starts at low prices to accommodate all budgets. We’re the perfect choice for those who have a limited budget or do not want an elaborate service.

  • Simple, straight forward pricing
    You can see all our pricing upfront. There are no hidden extras. Our advertised price covers the cost of a complete direct cremation package, which includes mandatory fees and taxes. Optional extras are individually priced, and a full breakdown of the final price is given to you to review before you purchase.

  • Knowledgable and compassionate staff
    Be confident that we will treat your loved one with the utmost respect, and you and your family with patience and understanding. All our licensed professionals and staff members are fully trained. They work to the highest standards set by the funeral profession, and they are expected to follow our own Code of Ethics at all times.

  • Strict, 8-Step ID system
    To guarantee that the ashes you receive are those of your loved one, we use a comprehensive tracking system throughout the entire cremation process: from the moment your loved one enters our care to the moment we deliver the cremated remains.

  • Licensed and accredited
    The Cremation Society of New England is licensed by the Connecticut Board of Funeral Directors and Embalmers and is proud to be recognized as a BBB Accredited Business.

  • Safe and secure website
    To protect your personal data, we use a secure encrypted connection between your computer and our website. That SSL connection protects all sensitive data such as credit card information, giving you peace of mind.
