Our story

The Cremation Society of the Carolinas provides cremation oversight directly for families choosing Cremation Options.

As the oldest and first cremation society, we have been providing families throughout the state with a secure location for cremation services since 1974. Our purpose in Funeral Care is to provide an affordable low-cost Cremation choice for families choosing an alternative to Traditional Funeral Homes or Funeral Services.

For your peace of mind, our Licensed Cremation Technicians operate our on-site cremation facility and oversee the complete process without outsourcing this delicate procedure.

(Many other providers rely on an additional company to provide the actual cremation and do not provide professional oversight)

We assist families of; Chapel Hill, Durham, Raleigh, Hillsborough, Pittsboro, Wake Forest, Garner, Fuquay-Varina, Cary, or Knightdale and extend our area of services in North Carolina from the Triangle to the Outer Banks, to the Mountains and to many areas of South Carolina and Virginia.

Families surveyed share our cremation services are the lowest in the area. Our many cremation service options include; Simple Cremation (Direct Cremation), Cremation with Memorial Services or Traditional Funeral Services with Cremation. 

Our modern facility compliments these offerings by allowing families a choice of considering a Celebration/ Remembrance Service in either an intimate Memorial area for small services, a separate Chapel for a traditional feel or a Reception Center.

For your convenience, we have a selection room of cremation merchandise including Urns and Memento items.
