  • Basic Services of Funeral Director and Staff
  • Transfer of Remains to Funeral Home and Crematory as needed
  • Dressing/Bathing/Basic Hair Styling
  • Courier to obtain and Secure Documents
  • Use of Facilities for Intimate Prayers (10 People/30  Min)

  • Transfer of Remains to Funeral Home
  • Embalming
  • Dressing/Casketing/Cosmetology

The main difference between the Contemporary and Traditional cremation services is that the Traditional package occurs over two days and the extra time allows for a more detailed, and intricate ceremony. Some families prefer spacing out the events a bit more because it can be overwhelming, but some prefer to have it on the same day as it can transition nicely.

**For each of the packages, the purchase of merchandise (i.e. caskets, urns, cremation containers, flowers, stationery, etc.) and cash advance items (death certificates, cemetery fees, clergy honorariums, etc.) have to be purchased separately as add-ons. 

We pride ourselves on offering some of most affordable yet quality cremation services in Maryland. Please contact us if you have any questions about our cremation packages.
