What do I do when a death occurs while out of town or away from home?

What do I do when a death occurs while out of town or away from home?

It’s important that you contact the local medical authorities first (as well as the police, if appropriate), and then make sure to give us a call as soon as possible. We will work with you to make the necessary arrangements to get you and your loved one back home as quickly and easily as possible. Calling us will also help you to avoid duplication of efforts and fees.

How much does Cremation cost?

How much does Cremation cost?

Our most economical direct cremation costs $1,696. That cost includes transferring the deceased from a local hospital or nursing home to our on-site climate-controlled facility, obtaining all required cremation authorizations, filing the death certificate, and performing the cremation. There is an additional charge of $140 if death occurs in a home. Some families will select a cremation that includes viewing of the deceased in our Reflection Room or a memorial service, which are added services available to you at additional cost.

Why are Cremation Society of the Quad Cities™ prices so much lower than those of traditional funeral homes?

Why are Cremation Society of the Quad Cities™ prices so much lower than those of traditional funeral homes?

Our charges are lower because we limit the services we offer:

• You do not have to pay for anything you don’t want or need
• In-person meetings are limited to the sole purpose of completing required documents and authorizations.
• Our cremation specialists spend less time with the authorizing agent at the time of death.

In addition, unlike many funeral homes, we own and operate our own on-site climate-facility and crematory and do not have to pay third-party refrigeration and crematory fees.

While the Cremation Society of the Quad Cities™ does not offer many additional services, a wide range of memorial options are available from our affiliated companies, Trimble Funeral Home & Crematory and CityView Celebrations, both located at Trimble Pointe in downtown, Moline.

What are the benefits of choosing The Cremation Society of the Quad Cities?

What are the benefits of choosing The Cremation Society of the Quad Cities?

Simply put, the main benefit is the significant savings in cost compared to the direct cremation charges of local funeral homes. Our charge for “Only Cremation” is at least $800 below the average cost of direct cremation of the fifteen funeral homes in Scott and Rock Island Counties.

Another benefit is that you can choose the services you want and record your wishes in advance. Your instructions and vital information will be kept on-file until it is needed. By having the information on hand at the time of death, arrangements will go more smoothly for your survivors.

Preplanning allows an individual to sign and authorize his or her own future cremation. In cases where the deceased does not have a next of kin, or has multiple next of kin with differing ideas, having written instructions can be the only way to assure that his or her wishes to be cremated will be followed.
