We will need some information about the deceased. Please download our Information We Will Need Form by clicking here, or at the bottom of this page. You can return this fillable .pdf document to us via e-mail or fax. You can contact us at any time by calling (914) 963-4499 or filling out the contact form on our about us page. If a death occurs at home, you may need to contact your Hospice provider so that a pronouncement of the death can be made. If a home death has taken place without Hospice Care, please dial 911. You may also be notified of a death by Nursing Home or Assisted Living Facility Staff and you may be instructed to contact a Funeral Home immediately. Please call our office so that we may respond in an expedited manor. Please keep in mind that our service commitment to you begins when you contact us, and any instructions you give, such as responding to a death, will begin your financial responsibility for services rendered. If another provider is selected at any time, for any reason, you may be asked to pay for the services we provide to you up to that point. We do not bill another Funeral Home these services, they must be paid by you.
It was once said "An educated consumer is our best customer". We are aware of the many Funeral Homes now offering low cost, cheap, or inexpensive Cremation Services to New York City via the web. We ask you to take a look at our content versus theirs. We have been online at NYcremation.com since 2003 - and it shows. Look past the cheap prices of our competitors and once again we would like to remind you of that age-old saying "You Get What You Pay For".
