During the past few months, we have all become accustomed to home delivery for nearly everything due to “stay-at-home” or “shelter-in-place” orders. At Cremation Society of America, we’ve received many inquires regarding home delivery of a loved one’s ashes upon completion of a Direct Cremation.
The answer is a resounding “YES.”
It takes CSA 7-10 business days to perform the Direct Cremation from the time we receive all necessary approvals. Then, in 1-2 days, the urn containing cremated remains is delivered via United States Postal Service Express Priority Mail. Within 8-12 business days your loved one’s Urn will be returned home to you.
However, some families prefer a more dignified and personal form of delivery: Hand Delivery. We at Cremation Society of America offer a Hand Delivery* service for an additional fee of $100 when you arrange your Direct Cremation with us.
*Please note that our Hand Delivery Service is currently available ONLY in Dade, Broward and Palm Beach counties in Florida. More delivery areas are planned.
When you choose to have your loved one’s cremains delivered by hand, an adult will need to be present at the delivery address with photo-identification in order to accept and sign for the ashes.
