About the Cremation Society of Tennessee
Today, well over 15 percent of Tennessee families choose cremation over burial. The Cremation Society of Tennessee was established to serve these families. We are licensed by the Tennessee Board of Funeral Directors and Embalmers and, unlike most funeral homes, specialize in providing services centered around your cremation options and choices.
The Cremation Society of Tennessee offers our families a full line of memorial and funeral services, cremation caskets, and urns at costs significantly less than those at traditional funeral homes. We do not sell high-priced caskets or operate lavish facilities, so our families are not pressured to buy services or merchandise they do not need.
Cremation is increasingly common throughout the United States and has become the preferred method of disposition in industrialized nations world-wide. Reasons for choosing cremation vary from religious, ecological or cost concerns, to personal preference. Additionally, more and more churches are assisting their members with simple, meaningful funeral services. Whatever your reason for choosing cremation, the Cremation Society of Tennessee is here to assist you in your time of need.

Complete arrangements can be made on-line, by mail, over the phone, or at your own residence without ever having to visit our offices. We understand the dignity of your decision and treat families desiring cremation services with the utmost respect. We will not mislead you regarding the cost. When you contact the Cremation Society of Tennessee, you will be given the total cost for our services. We do not quote a low price then add on hidden fees. We will fully explain all of our services and answer any questions you may have – thoughtfully and honestly – just as you deserve.
How is a Cremation Society different from a Traditional Funeral Home?
While most traditional funeral homes treat cremation as a side line, or “alternative”, the Cremation Society of Tennessee was established to provide professional, compassionate services to families who prefer a simple, dignified, and affordable form of cremation and burial services. As funeral costs continue to rise, more people are turning to us as a dignified alternative to elaborate – and expensive – funeral services. We simply do not have the overhead costs associated with operating and caring for big buildings and expensive vehicles. For this reason, we are able to provide our service throughout the state at a significant savings to you and your family with a professional, caring staff of funeral directors, fully licensed by the state of Tennessee.
