Acadia Burial and Cremation Direct was created as an alternative to meet the needs of those who do not desire the services of a funeral home. Our intention is to provide direct services to those families who wish to have cremation or burial without ceremony. In order to provide the services at a minimum cost we require payment in full at the time of consultation, either by cash or check. Additional items are available upon request.
The goods and services shown below are those we can provide to our customers. You may choose only the items that you desire. (However, any funeral arrangements you select will include a charge for our basic services and overhead.) If legal or other requirements mean you must buy any items you did not specifically ask for, we will explain the reason in writing on the statement describing the funeral goods and services you selected.
