Our Burial Services

The earliest human burial dates back 100,000 years making it one of the longest-lived and most widespread of traditions.

Understanding Burial Services

Here at Elcock Funeral Home, Inc., we have the deepest respect for this traditional practice. If you are interested in learning more about the burial services we offer, please review the following information. Should you have questions about anything, please call us at (718) 845-7408.

There are many things to consider when selecting burial. One of the first decisions you'll need to make involves choosing both the cemetery and the specific place of burial within its grounds. You'll then need to select a casket and possibly a burial vault,  if required by the cemetery.  At some point, and this does not have to take place right away, the decision becomes one of selecting the headstone or marker and writing the inscription. A member of our professional staff will be available should you wish to have assistance in making each of these decisions.

An Open Invitation

We offer a number of affordable burial service options. They range from: simple burials where only a member of our staff oversees the interment; simple graveside services led by a religious leader, family member or funeral director; and a traditional funeral service followed by burial. Each can be tailored to meet the needs and expectations of today's price-conscious families.
