Online Arrangements for a Direct Cremation:
Our online service allows families the ability to make complete arrangements for the direct cremation of their loved one from the comfort of their own home, using the internet and without the need to come to the funeral home. This option is perfect for those families who live out of state, or who wish to have a direct hands-on approach to arrangements and are willing to handle some details on their own. Families choosing this service option will see a significant savings on the cost of a direct cremation, since the family will not have a face-to-face meeting with a funeral director and the completion of documents will be handled online. Since the family choosing this type of service desires to accomplish several of the tasks traditionally performed by a funeral firm, you will be engaging us to provide a minimal number of professional services.This limitation of services is reflected in the package price of $1595, plus cost of Medical Examiner Cremation Authorization Fee for the county in which the death took place. This fee varies from county to county and is capped by Florida statute at $50.
Please know that the same attention to detail and service that has been the hallmark of Griffith-Cline for the past 82 years is the same for the online cremation package as it is with all other funeral arrangements for which we are engaged.
