Burial or Cremation

At Malloy-Esposito Funeral Home & Crematory, You Simply Choose Burial or Cremation


For many families, a traditional funeral seems the appropriate way to honor their loved one. Others, however, may find themselves pressured by the circumstances of the moment into these traditional arrangements, despite their high cost and complexity. The problem may be a lack of time in which to decide or the inability to resist convention during this time of great emotional stress. Our experience indicates that families accept unsuitable arrangements simply because they do not know what else to do, or where else to go-other than a traditional funeral home.





If you plan your burial, cremation and merchandise purchases in advance, you save someone else from making difficult decisions. Put your wishes in writing and give a copy to your next of kin.


Cremation is accepted by most religious groups. It can be one of the least expensive options, especially when combined with a memorial service. The Direct Burial avoids a viewing and the need for embalming, and the body is placed in the casket and brought directly to the cemetery. The Green Burial is an environmentally friendly alternative that uses a simple casket to allow the body to return to the earth. A graveside service could be held at the cemetery for any one of these options.


Be an educated consumer and make sure you are asking what the actual cost of the casket , urn or outer burial container is. Most funeral homes prices will vary dramatically. At Malloy-Esposito Funeral Home & Crematory, we pride ourselves on providing the best value, helping you spend more time with family and friends and not so much time shopping for the best prices.
