Many people believe that choosing cremation means limiting your options. Actually, there are a variety of options available with cremation.

Your funeral director will explain these options to you and answer any questions you may have about cremation.


First let us assure you that we know what you mean when you say, "We just want cremation."  We understand that to mean you don't want to be sold services and merchandise that you do not want or need...and we will honor that request.  There are no pushy sales tactics or hidden fees.  We promise.  Cremation has become a popular option for many people because it can offer more flexibility as to where and when a memorial service can be conducted. You can have a memorial service with or without the urn being present. It is also possible to have a traditional funeral before the cremation if that is your choice.


A Memorial Service is a service without the body of your loved being present. At this service, you may choose to have the cremated remains present in an urn. This ceremony can be held at the funeral home chapel or at your church. It is a way to honor the life of your loved one and provide a setting in which friends and family might gather together.


A funeral with viewing and visitation is still an option when choosing cremation. As with any traditional funeral, all the usual options for ceremony apply. After the ceremony, instead of processing to the burial site the service is concluded and your loved one's remains are cremated.


In almost every case there are a few third party or extra expenses - these are not our charges, therefore, they are not listed as such; however, so that you do not have any surprises you should know about these potential third party fees.

  • 1. Certified Death Certificates - Certified Copies are $15 (as of January 1, 2019) each as charged by local government.
  • 2. Obituaries - Most newspapers will publish a free death notice if desired. For obituaries that list survivor information and other personal information there is usually a fee charged by the newspaper.
  • 3. Clergy Honoraria - it is customary to offer an honorarium to a clergy person who officiates a funeral or memorial service. Ask your fellow parishioners or funeral director for customary guidelines.   
  • 4.  All cremations in the state of Florida must be approved by a medical examiner.  This district, the Jacksonville Medical Examiner's Officer covers Nassau County and they charge $50 to review the death certificate and grant cremation approval.  Their fee will be added to the total cost of services provided.

THERE ARE NO HIDDEN FEES OR ADDITIONAL CHARGES made by Green Pine Funeral Home for any services and no hidden fees based on time of day or day of week.
