    Founded in 1973 in Pinellas County, National Cremation Society is the oldest and largest cremation company in the nation. They continue to keep up with the times by compassionately supporting both traditional and contemporary funeral arrangements. To suit more conventional observances, they offer full service visitations, burials, and religious and non-religious services in their onsite chapel. With a crematory also onsite, they specialize in cremation plans and celebration of life services. As advocates of pre-planning, National Cremation Society provides the opportunity for individuals to make provisions for these final plans, thereby alleviating the financial and emotional burden arrangements typically impose on families

    It is rare for a company to become such an integral part in the lives of the families it supports.

    “What we’ve actually done is build relationships over these forty years,” said Don Politano, Service Manager and Funeral Director for National Cremation Society. “Establishing that mutual trust with the local hospitals, caregivers, community leaders, merchants, and neighbors is essential when you are helping people make time of need or pre-arranged plans.” When families meet with the professionals at National Cremation Society, they have just lost a loved one or wish to make their final plans in advance. National Cremation Society has forged singular bonds with these families, as these are emotional experiences characterized by a unique vulnerability. A connection is created unlike those established between most customers and service providers.

    Today, with offices across the United States, the National Cremation Society has served over 190,000 families at time of loss. Over 450,000 families have consulted with them to facilitate pre-arranged services. The organization’s sole purpose is to offer families traditional and alternative choices; at a cost much less than local funeral homes. As part of the family of firms owned by Service Corporation International, the largest provider of death care services in America, National Cremation Society is also a member of this vast network of over 1800 affiliates across America and Canada. Each one is available to support families in need and those interested in pre-planning.

    We Serve Pinellas and Hillsborough Counties and offer services for viewing, visitation, and burials.

    3. Families are contacted as quickly as possible after a death and information is gathered to initiate and coordinate the cremation.
    4. Cremation permit, disposition permit and family cremation authorizations must be completed according to Florida State Law before cremation can take place. These documents are usually completed in 2-3 business days.
    5. Once our staff has received the necessary authorizations and documents have been properly signed, the cremation will take place
    6. The cremated remains will be delivered to our office and transferred into the urn or keepsakes selected by the family. The funeral director will discuss with the family a time to release the urn. If shipping or delivery is requested, allow 1- 2 additional days.
