Q: Do we have to meet in Birmingham, Alabama, in order to use Cremation Center of Birmingham?
A: No, we can fax or email necessary documents that the family can then have notarized (at any bank or UPS store). Just email or fax the documents back to us. When the documents have been received electronically, the cremation can take place. The originals are returned to us by postal mail.
Q: Does the $950 cremation price include an urn?
A: Yes, our $950 price does include a basic, rectangular plastic urn that is suitable for shipping, scattering, or burial. We do have a link that allows you to view and purchase other urns.
Q: Will there be any hidden or extra charges that we weren't expecting with Cremation Center of Birmingham?
A: No, the $950 price includes transportation from the place of death, the cremation and basic urn, and filing any necessary legal documents with the state and federal government. Any other charges that are incurred would be anything extra that the family elects to do with outside companies, such as:
- Ordering Copies Of The Certified Death Certificate (This Charge Is Paid Directly To The State Of Alabama)
- Obituaries (These Costs Are Paid Directly To the Newspaper)
- Cemetery Charges (If You Plan To Bury the Urn Or An Urn Vault—We Have Very Affordable Urn Vaults, Starting At Only $300)
- Flowers for the Service (Arrange This Directly With Your Own Florist)
