Simple Choices, Inc. is a licensed and registered funeral firm, founded specifically to serve the need of those who desire cremation as a form of final disposition, in lieu of traditional burial. Unlike other funeral homes who consider cremation as a sideline offering, providing cremation services is our primary focus, has been from the beginning and continues to this day.

It is our belief that simple cremations, can be exceptional.

“ Contacted them when a family member passed and we lived out of state. As opposed to having the body brought here we contacted them looking for a basic cremation. They were fast, thorough and professional. They took care of all the basic services that were needed for the cremation as well as everything else for significantly less than what most funeral homes would charge. We were able to pick up our family member in a few days and bring them back for the services held locally. They did exactly what we needed them to do which saved us time, hassle and money. Highly recommend if you are in a similar situation or just looking to have your loved one cremated without the need for all the pomp and circumstance. ”
“ As we arrived at the Simple Choices Crematory we instantly recognized beautiful landscaping and very well structures. As we entered the funeral home, we observed how elegant the entire facility was. We were quickly greeted by Mr. Facci and once again he offered his condolences. In a courtesy and professional manner he guided my family to receive our mother's ashes. He provided us with a folder of helpful information including free grieving counseling along with my Mom's death certificate. It was a heartwarming and peaceful experience under the circumstances. Mr. Facci also went above and beyond by providing bereavement letters to family members so that they would not loose wages due to time off during this sad time. I also would like to add that Mr. Facci made himself available at a very late hour when called upon from the nursing home to receive my mother's recently deceased body. He was very compassionate in the process of removing my mom from her bed onto the hearse, at which time our family waved goodbye. We are so very grateful for this experience and we highly recommend Simple Choices to anyone. ”

“ I would like to express my sincere appreciation for the service that you provided me when my husband passed last week. You were at my home within an hour to pick up his body and take it to the funeral parlor. Nicholas was incredibly understanding, compassionate and kind when he arrived the following day to make arrangements with me and again when he came personally to my home to deliver my husband's ashes. I could not believe the door to door service that was provided and the fact that I never had to step inside the funeral facility in order to plan my husband's direct cremation which was exactly what he wanted. Your prices were unbelievably reasonable for this service as well. For this reason I hope this review reaches out to others and that your service enjoys limitless growth and success.Sincerely, Anita F.My Family made the right choice while searching for a cremation service for our brother Bobby Anderson. We were very impressed with the environment and the cleanliness of the place. They treated our family with the utmost respect and professionalism. An associate by the name of Nicholas J. Facci was one of the most caring and attentive person who assisted us with all our needs. This was a very devastating loss and he helped us with the transition of losing a love one.Our heartfelt thanks to Simple Choices, Inc- Yvonne A.Simple Choices Cremation Service was simply excellent as my family and I dealt with the passing of my mom. Roy and Nicholas were professional, understanding, accommodating and most of all compassionate! Not to mention Simple Choices Cremation Service was also the most affordable option we found in the Capital District. I would highly recommend Simple Choices Cremation Service to anyone who may desire this type of service.-Tom J. ”
