We receive many letters from the families we've served, thanking us for our caring ways during their time of loss. Their words warm our hearts, and speak to you of our professionalism, compassion, and the true value of the services we provide.

Jim Marrocco and his staff have been amazing. I lost my brother and didn't know which way to turn when it came to a situation like this so I asked around and got a few recommendations but went with Cremation Society of New Jersey and glad I did. Everyone was so kind, compassionate, and professional and made everything easy for me during a very tough time I give them 5 stars and more thank you everyone at Cremation Society of New Jersey!

My aunt was living in Arizona and she had a prepaid cremation. She came to live with my sister last year in New Jersey and unfortunately the cremation was only for Arizona. The cremation society was helpful transferring the contract to their facility. When my aunt passed this year they were very compassionate and professional every time I reached out to them. Months has passed since my aunts passing and they are still reaching out to us to check on us.

The process was quick and easy. The people were great to work with. They explained everything and assisted where needed. This service also eliminated the need for an expensive funeral home if all you wanted was for the body to be cremated and the ashes returned to you.

Pedro Panana June 17, 2020

We were fortunate to find Cremation Society of NJ when our father died in 2015 at 93. He had made clear that this was his wish. We had no experience with cremation at that time, but the professionals at CSA helped us to understand the process and guided us to complete the arrangements. When our mother died in May, 2020, at 98, we worked with them again for final arrangements, this time slightly more challenging in the time of COVID-19. Jim Marrocco and staff are consummate professionals and meet all needs with dignity and understanding. We three kids (!) are all from out of state and so it was important to have a relationship with a Bergen County business to offer their assistance and service to bring our parents to their eternal rest. Sincere thanks from our family to Cremation Society of NJ.

Debbie Meckbach February 14, 2021

When my husband died, I knew options were limited due to COVID-19. But more importantly, I was only looking for a cremation service as a matter of personal choice. I wanted a firm that would help me remotely, was reasonably priced and close by. I found this at the Cremation Society of New Jersey. I was able to fill out all the information on-line and everything else was done with email and a few phone calls. The staff was understanding and compassionate. It was a tough time but I felt very comfortable with my choice.

The Cremation Society of NJ was extremely helpful with my daughter's passing. They were patient with me and worked hard at getting everything resolved as soon as possible. It would have been much more difficult for me if they weren't there because I live 2 hours away. The price was affordable and they provided many choices in the process. I highly recommend dealing with them if you need cremation services.

We 110% recommend their services and wish to thank them once again

Steve Hogan May 26, 2020

Both Jim and Elizabeth were most professional and considerate during a very difficult time for me with the loss of my Mom. I had to make arrangements while living out of state and during the covid-19 pandemic. It was emotionally difficult and with the pandemic things were even worse. They called me and walked me through all the details and emailed everything necessary for me to sign. Since there was such a back up in Northern NJ with the unfortunate loss of so many people due to this virus, I wanted to have it done as soon as possible and not to have to wait several weeks, they offered an option to have her transported to South Jersey for a minimal extra fee. This provided comfort, as no one wants to ever lose their Mom. I would recommend them highly.

Susan Daidone May 27, 2020

I found the Cremation Society everything a “ business” should aspire too. Especially in these delicate areas. They were caring, friendly, and helpful in every way possible! I’ve dealt with Stephanie, Elizabeth and Jim. Very lovely people. A few years back, I used their crematory services for my Meggie (dog). They were very kind and compassionate. I highly recommend their services to all at a very sad time.

Cheryl Curtin May 29, 2020

Cynthia Mueller February 11, 2021

When my mother went to be with the Lord recently, the Cremation Society of New Jersey provided their services in taking care of her corporeal body. They were extremely professional in every way: punctual, thoughtful, reliable, and kind as well as affordable. They even went the extra step of including some of my father’s ashes in her urn so that my parents could be together when she is buried in Puerto Rico. (His urn will be at the Veteran’s cemetery.) They helped make the most difficult time of my life a bit easier. I highly recommend them.

Dear Jim & Staff Thank you so much for your assistance when our mother died on Oct. 13th At Cedar Crest Retirement Community. You came on very short notice which meant I did not need to drive to an unfamiliar place at a stressful time. You also helped with the paperwork I had not filled out in advance. Mom's ashes arrived as promised. My brother and I greatly appreciate your help. Thank you, Nancy & Douglas
