Simple Cremation, A Simple Process
Simple (or direct) cremation refers to the way that a deceased person’s remains may be handled through cremation without having a ceremony beforehand. There may also not be services afterwards, depending on the needs of the remaining loved ones. Cremation is the process of carefully identifying the deceased and then putting them into an appropriate cremation container. This container is brought into the actual cremation chamber and then exposed to extreme heat (up to 2000 degrees Fahrenheit). The actual time in the chamber can vary depending upon the size of the body. Generally, it does not take longer than a few hours. This intense heat causes the remains to dry out and combust until only bone fragments are left. After the cooling process, the fragments are completely collected and ground into a fine sand-like consistency that we generally refer to as “ashes.” These ashes are then placed in an urn and returned to the remaining loved ones to be scattered, interred, or kept in a safe place.
CremateSimply® is Easy to Work With for Cremations in Denver, CO
Our process for arranging cremations is uncomplicated. We know this time is filled with many decisions to make, and we are here to help simplify things for you. Colorado law requires that a body be embalmed or refrigerated within 24 hours of death. As such, we can come and put your loved one in our care right away while you decide the best course of action– up to 72 hours later. Should you need the deceased transported elsewhere, we will do that for you at no charge.
We have worked with hundreds of families to find the absolute essentials to include in our service. We will file the appropriate paperwork for the cremation permit, notification to social security of the death, and filing for the actual death certificate. Regarding death certificates — there are five certified copies included in our fee.
Our cremations are only handled onsite, in our facilities. We take great pride in our caring, professional staff who are carefully trained and attentive to this service’s necessary details and sensitive nature. Our identification process was created to ensure no mistakes. You will receive your loved one’s remains at the end of the process.
We are always upfront with our pricing package. This package includes the services already mentioned, as well as the transfer of the deceased to our facility (and their safekeeping until the time of cremation). The service also includes a cremation container, the actual cremation, and a basic urn. There are no gimmicks, no upsells, and no hidden fees.
Direct Cremations May Not Fit Your Situation
Not everyone needs or wants to retain simple cremation services. We understand that, and we never want anyone to feel that they can’t utilize other services. We are here to support those who need a more streamlined or budget-friendly option to lay their loved ones to rest.
We can support a brief visit of the deceased (10 people or less) before the cremation takes place. However, we do not offer embalming or public viewings. Those services would need to be retained through a mortuary or funeral home.
Services Can Be Held After Simple Cremations
Present-day conditions and modern options have made it completely acceptable to have services for your departed after a direct cremation has been completed. The more flexible time frame has made this a wonderful option for families and loved ones who are stretched across the globe or need extended timelines to gather safely. We only support cremations in Denver, CO, but encourage families to have some type of funeral, memorial, or celebration of life if they desire.
Pre-Purchase of Services Available
A great option we see more and more is where people choose to pre-pay for these services. This can be done if there is an upcoming death or as a simple way to prepare for a need that will arise someday. We promise that in the future, our service will still be the excellent care you expect from us today.

Should I choose Burial or Cremation?
Burial in a casket is the most common method of disposing of remains in the United States, although entombment also occurs. Cremation is increasingly selected because it can be less expensive and allows for the memorial service to be held at a more convenient time in the future when relatives and friends can come together. Learn more about our cremation services.
How is a body prepared for cremation?
Usually, the body is bathed, cleaned, and dressed before identification. There is no embalming unless you have a public viewing, or you request it. Next, jewelry or other items that you would like to keep are removed. Learn more about our cremation process.
How to decide whether to cremate or bury?
Cremation is a simpler process that also helps save ground space, but it is not so in case of burial. Nevertheless, both are regarded as safe ways of dealing with the deceased. Contact us so we can help!
