Why work with Best Cremation Service?
We focus on providing a transparent, simple, and affordable service for any family seeking cremation at the time of need – or planning ahead. Unlike many traditional funeral homes with funeral home prices, we keep costs down, never use high-pressure sales tactics, or hide your true price. You will be constantly aware of where you are in the process, our next steps, and what to expect. Everything we do is designed to create an exceptional experience for you and your family.

You can make arrangements by simply clicking ‘Pricing’ above. Reach out to us – we will make sure you are guided through every step you need to take. We have experts on our team who can ensure that everything is taken care of for you efficiently and compassionately.
How do you ensure quality?
We are a fully licensed funeral home in the state of Ohio and have licensed funeral directors on our team. Not only are we regulated by the state licensing board, but we also maintain internal standards and requirements that go well beyond what is required by law. All our partners are vetted, insured, and reputable.
Are services available everywhere?
We offer our affordable direct cremation and pre-planning services, including prepaid direction cremation planning, across the state of Ohio. Funeral services are regulated at a state-by-state level, so we work in geographies where we have licensed staff and licensed funeral home. However, you can make arrangements for a family member in Ohio from anywhere in the world directly on our website.

Do you offer a memorial service?
We do not require that you pay for a memorial service through us. Your family can select the memorial that appeals to you and arrange independently. Some families prefer a private family ceremony, a celebration of life, or service at their church. We give you the choice and don’t require any specific memorial.
What is direct cremation?
Direct cremation is the simplest way to navigate the end-of-life process. Direct cremation allows families to arrange a cremation that takes place days after the passing without a viewing or memorial before.
How are ashes returned?
In the United States, the law requires that all ashes must be shipped via USPS in a specially-designated container. You will receive a signature-required package from USPS with a temporary container that can be transferred to any urn you select in the Arrangements process. We will notify you of shipment progress each step of the way.
How do your costs compare to a traditional funeral?
We provide services at less than half the cost of what you would pay at a traditional funeral home. Since we provide only the highest-quality services and 24/7 customer support, we chose not to compete with the prices of the very cheapest cremation providers.
When do I pay?
To guarantee your price and have our team take your loved one into our care, you pay up front for services rendered. You never have unexpected bills from us in the future.
How do payment plans work?
You can choose to pay our service fees over time as well with no financing charges. Simply select the Affirm option at checkout and you will be enrolled in just a few minutes. You can pay over months, or years – whatever works best for you and your family.
How long does the process take?
Typically, the direct cremation process takes less than ten (10) days, assuming all legal authorizations are promptly signed by the appropriate next-of-kin.
What are the laws about scattering ashes?
Laws vary depending on geographic location and federal law. You should consult regulations for your specific location, but generally scattering on private property with the permission of the owner is permitted.
