Shoreline Cremation was a wonderful resource during our family’s time of need when my dad passed away. James and Joe were extremely attentive and empathetic while helping us make the arrangements for his service. Shoreline Cremation made the whole process effortless and smooth. I would definitely recommend their services during such an unexpected and unfortunate time.

James and Joe were both very professional but also very helpful and compassionate. They walked us through every step and took such good care of our family. I also have to say that the cost was half of other funeral parlors in the area. Our whole family is very happy we found Shoreline Cremation for our aunt. We highly recommend them.

I would just like to thank Joe and James from Shoreline Cremation for their kindness while I was making funeral arrangements for the passing of my brother Gary. There was nothing in place my brother as far as arrangements and I was very worried. A friend recommended that I call Shoreline Cremation. Starting from my very first phone call when Joe answered the phone, I felt a sense of relief for he was very calming when I explained that my brother did not have much time left for he was very sick. Joe explained that when the time does come, just call him or James and they will help me with what is necessary. This helped me focus on spending the valuable time I needed with my brother as much as I possibly could without worrying about what is to come regarding arrangements. I was not sure of all that was necessary for this funeral because I needed to plan everything separately, and that was very stressful. Joe and James are not only helpful, but are pleasant to work with and will speak with you at any time for I definitely had many questions. They also stayed with us through to the end of our ceremony providing support for a proper sendoff. Shoreline Cremation services were very accommodating for what I needed to get through this process. Kindly, Laurie Sanzari 3/30/2022

When we lost my sister a year ago it was under very difficult circumstances. Joe sensitively guided us in preparation, always immediately responsive and available any time day or night. When we needed him, he and David arrived immediately, respectfully, with a quiet, understanding presence, which allowed us to grieve without any other consideration. Joe and David went beyond service. In loss, one needs the accommodating and caring they so gracefully provide.

At the oh, so sad and stressful time for our family of our loved one dying, Joe at Shoreline Cremation was there for us every hard step of the way. We had less than 48 hours over a weekend to make so many decisions and arrangements. Joe was incredibly responsive to our myriad of questions, and he was gentle, kind, knowledgeable and supportive. He went the extra mile to see us through the whole difficult week. We are extremely grateful to Joe, David and Shoreline Cremation for their important service and dedication, and especially for comforting our broken hearts.

Over the past 13 months many of us have lost loved ones. This year we lost 3 members of our family. Planning funerals has become all too common. Recently I lost my husband. To say my kids and I were devastated would be an understatement. My daughter and I called several local funeral homes to see if the could fulfill my husband's wishes for a simple cremation. The popular, go to, often used funeral homes only made our task more difficult. My daughter was frustrated with the all too common practice of "up-selling". Trying to convince us we needed certain services when they were reminded it was a cremation. I then remembered seeing a Shoreline Cremation brochure recently. I called them and the staff was sympathetic and understanding. The ease with which they dealt with us made it possible to fulfill my husband's wishes without unnecessary drama. Joe & David listened and then kept us on track with paperwork, forms and tasks. During these unpleasant times they were a pleasure to work with. Services went smoothly. Friends who attended called to say how safe they felt in these seemingly unsafe times. It was little things that I had not seen at the other services we attended this year. Things like sterilized pens for the guestbook that were constantly monitored and rotated upon use. Then there were the little individual bottles of hand sanitizers for the visitors to use and take. My family can not say enough about how much we appreciated the staff and all they did for us. The service was beautiful and exactly what my husband would have wanted. I would recommend Shoreline Cremations for anyone needing funeral services. They will be our "Go-To" funeral directors in the future. (Note: we paid for a beautiful memorable service; not some popular brand name. With Shoreline Cremations we never felt like we were being taken advantage of during a stressful time.) Your loved ones ALWAYS deserve the best: Shoreline Cremations is that.

If star ratings were on this page, I would give Shoreline Cremation all 5 STARS! Joe and David were patient, supportive, and very helpful. The service that Shoreline Cremation delivered was excellent and expedient! There were no sales or price gimmicks. Everything is as stated on their website. After mom's passing, I felt guilty leaving my mom in a cold and desolate hospital setting... I felt an overwhelming sense of guilt and despair. However, my worries were not long. It was with a sigh of consolation and relief that I read the email from Joe the next morning that mom's body had been picked up and was already at the funeral home (very next day). In addition, we chose the online obituary to deliver the information to all family members since the internet is accessible to all and reaches the masses. We were able to notify our family in Puerto Rico. I HIGHLY recommend Shoreline Cremation. The service is excellent, the price reasonable and the staff patient and supportive. Thank you much.
