From my first call, the people at NC have been excellent in all respects: understanding, helpful, courteous, knowledgeable, and professional. At risk leaving out any name, I mention only MJ; response to any question was supportive, accurate and timely. Frankly, I’ve never dealt with a finer group of people.

I was so impressed with the professional and caring service in the handling of my mother's cremation. They took the time with my brother and I to find the just the right urn for her cremains. I would highly recommend them!

Suzanne was absolutely wonderful helping us through the cremation after losing our husband/father. It was during Covid crisis when we couldn’t even visit him in the last days. Blessings to Suzanne **.

I was purchasing for my son, Robert, Jr. who lives in North Carolina. Addresses and phone numbers were confused. Finally was contacted by Julie ** who researched the possible problems and managed to correct the errors. She was most courteous and helpful.

My mother had purchased her cremation earlier in her life from National Cremation Society. When we lost your back in October, this was my first experience with them and with cremation in general. They took all the stress and worry out of the process, they were so easy to deal with. Since I was so pleased, I purchased a cremation for my father. Unfortunately I lost him a week ago and I had the same great experience with them with my father.

My sister passed away last month in Las Vegas. I live in Chicago and was really at a loss. Daren helped me tremendously both emotionally and physically. He made a very difficult situation easier. Thank you again.

Simple process and all questions and concerns were answered. One phone call will take care of the entire process of my body being delivered to a cremation facility and the ashes delivered to my home. Well worth the cost for my wishes to be completed without family member interference. Ashes will be distributed per my wishes in the ocean so anyone can pay their respects or disrespects to me.

Somebody told me to go with National Cremation. Everything went smoothly. The lady I worked with was very nice and answered all questions just fine. She was talkative. She knew what she was talking about. Preplanning made the stress a lot better. With my husband, we did everything at the last minute. I couldn’t handle it, so my kids did it. It’s a lot better this way when you do it ahead of time. It was a fantastic experience with National Cremation. The lady I worked with made it very easy.

I’d been getting National Cremation cards in the mail for a couple of years on a rather regular basis like maybe once every five months. It got planted in my mind from that. I already wanted to do cremation for both of me and my wife. We already had that figured out. We knew where we were gonna buried with other family members. I then talked to my father-in-law who is 95 years old about what they have. They kinda have the same thing except with a single funeral home up in Minnesota. I wondered if I wanted to go with that or if I wanted to go with National Cremation. I had already heard the presentation and it just came down to where I thought the presentation made the most sense for us.

The people at National Cremation were great. I have a fairly good understanding of the funeral industry in that I’m a retired pastor and I’m also an amateur genealogist so I’ve done a lot in that field personally. I felt that the team covered all the bases and they did everything. They said the right things and answered questions. They were also available. Everything’s fine and we got our packages.

First, we received a mailing indicating a presentation at a local restaurant. We called and reserved a spot and when we went to the restaurant on the assigned date, no one was there and the establishment was unaware of any seminar being scheduled. Irene ** contacted us and arranged a private luncheon meeting at the restaurant at a later date. She was very apologetic and after a thorough explanation arranged to finalize our enrollment at our home.

The concerns I have are, even though she explained thoroughly what we were receiving and asked our preferences, she never explained that we did not have to purchase the box and amenities. We clearly told her that we would be having our ashes scattered and did not need all the "memorial amenities". I feel the cost could have been reduced by eliminating these items that we will never use.

Secondly, she indicated that we would receive a check if the reference we provided purchased a plan. I know that my reference did purchase a plan, but I have not received a check. Irene was very informative and I am not complaining about her service, but wish she would have made us aware of all the items, i.e. candle and holder, high end wooden box, etc that will never be used and also followed through with the check for referral.

I'm a veteran. I was unsure about my final wishes since the average funeral cost was so expensive. I finally decided on National Cremation Society since it was a cost saving alternative. I wanted to investigate what they offered. They sent a representative to my home to meet with me to review the process. Laura was friendly & very straightforward and informative about their program. I was very surprised about its content and its price that could be paid overtime and very reasonable. I decided it was for me and very re-assuring to have this matter behind me at an affordable cost. Thank you.

About 2 months ago my husband and I attended a seminar at a Mexican restaurant on Main Street, Sarasota, with Becky moderating. She projected warmth and honesty above all, and we were at a point in our lives where we felt we were nearly ready to commit to cremation. We scheduled a private meeting with Becky, and by that time, had decided to go forward. She answered all of our questions, again projecting a friendly knowledge. We signed up on the spot and have not regretted it. It was a big weight off of our minds, given our ages, and given the Covid-19 virus consuming all of our daily lives.

I'm happy with the idea of going with National Cremation's service. It was something that I've been meaning to do for a while, and I'm really happy with my decision and glad I'm doing something. The team at National Cremation was very helpful, very willing to answer questions, and very willing to work with me. I feel like I'm doing the right thing. I'm talking about it with people because right now in my age group, we were looking to feel okay about whatever comes, so we know we're ready and that we don't leave a mess to people we care about. And there's more and more of my friends that are thinking about this right now.

I have been thinking about cremation and knew that I wanted to eliminate the need for my family to have to make decisions on my behalf or have to deal with any additional burden when I eventually pass. I met with Kathy **, a very knowledgable and professional associate that made the process extremely easy and informative. There was no pressure - just information. I'm very happy with my decision and that I worked with National Cremation Society. I would highly recommend them and ask for Kathy **.

My husband recently passed and his arrangement was so calming in a horrible time. With this I decided to fulfill my obligations for my remaining family so that they too will have no worries at my passing. It was easy and dealt with care and professionalism. I would highly encourage and recommend this decision.

My husband passed a few weeks ago. A month prior we signed on with NCS. From the first call to schedule a meeting to discuss the details to the hand delivery of his flag after he was cremated, NCS were there for us. They kept in close communication each step and I was able to focus on grieving with my husband's daughter and our granddaughter. To know that all of the logistical details involved when a loved one passes, were taken care of, meant more than this review can ever express. I will be getting a plan through them. My father had them 7 years ago when he passed. My mother also has a plan. It's flexible and a much needed service. Thank you NCS for following your mission... giving a hand up so loved ones can focus on their family.

I want to compliment the sales agent. Very low-key, informative, patient, knowledgeable. The price seems very fair based on the market. One thing that both my wife and I agree upon, however, is that the ornate box that contained the cremation urn is really not necessary. It looks nice, but really is not necessary. I understand that it makes it appear as if you have purchased something of value, but if we could have reduced our purchase price by electing NOT to have that box, we would have.

The salesperson was very good and very polite and professional, but seemed to be limited in terms of the flexibility to accommodate anything that was "non-standard" in the package offered. For example, we were prepared to pay extra for urns that we preferred, because we did not like the ones included in the basic package. But she was not able to help us out.

I had visited on a friend and heard about National Cremation, so I figured it would be a good idea to have ours done also because we live in Florida but sometimes, we go to Massachusetts for half the time and then we come back here because this is our residence. We figured if something happens, our kids don’t have to do anything. It’d be all done. The lady I worked with was excellent. She took her time. She sat on one side with it on the other side of the table and she explained to us everything. The pricing was good. It was the main thing just to have everything done in case something happened to us, plus, with this virus around, and we’re elderly. So, we figured we’ll just have everything done now.
