Welcome to Ithaca Cremation Service
If death has just occurred please call 607-274-7544
Ithaca Cremation Service was created to provide families in, and around, Tompkins County an affordable cremation service to care for their loved ones.
Our goal is to make this process as stress free as possible.
You can rest assured, that every person that comes through our doors is treated with the same dignity and respect.
*Ithaca Cremation Service has been set up in a way that you are able to make complete funeral arrangements from the comfort of your own home. Authorizations, paperwork, and payments are done online and via email. Please make sure you have this capability before moving forward.
We do NOT meet or sit down with families like a traditional funeral home- this allows us to keep our costs low.
Full payment is expected when services are rendered. Our charges for Direct Cremation are $795, with an additional $300 crematory fee. The total combined cost is $1,095. There are potential additional costs, for example: removal outside of Tompkins County ($200), second attendant removal ($100), or removal of a pacemaker ($95).
Ithaca Cremation Service does NOT process Life Insurance Policies, Trust Accounts, Pre-Plan accounts, or personal bank accounts. We do not work with the Department of Social Services in regards to payment. We are a cash only business and payment is due when services are rendered. This is another way we are able to keep our costs low.
For Deaths occurring in Pennsylvania, at Robert Packer Hospital/Guthrie Sayre the funeral home charges are $1035. This includes the additional $200 for the removal, and the required $40 coroner fee for Authorization to Cremate. There is an additional $300 crematory fee.Total combined cost is $1,335. There are potential additional charges; such as second attendant removal, or removal of a pacemaker, etc.
NOTE: The cremation process takes a minimum of one week.
We do not guarantee a time frame at all; so if you are planning a service, we suggest you wait until you receive the cremains of your loved one to schedule

-Removal of the deceased from the place of death
