City of Oaks
Funeral Home & Cremations

Our Funeral Home is located in Wake County NC; however, we provide our services to families throughout the entire State. Regardless of what County you live in, we can help your family with making simple, affordable funeral arrangements.

We have an all-inclusive, low cost approach. The families we serve are typically educated, practical, environmentally conscious and economically sound decision makers. More frequently, families are deciding to bypass the lavish floral displays, catered receptions, expensive hearses and family cars or limousines that have often been associated with traditional American funerals of the past.

We provide each family with a Licensed Funeral Director who will work with you from start to finish. Our team takes pride in being able to assist families with a wide range of cultures, religions, economical and other influencing factors. We provide compassionate care and understanding to families at the time of a pending death by making sure they are informed of what steps will follow and how we will be there to assist them through the entire process. Our Funeral Directors provide the reassuring voice that families rely on while going through a difficult time when a loved one passes away.

We service all of North Carolina, including but not limited to: Apex, Cary, Chapel Hill, Clayton, Durham, Fayetteville, Fuquay-Varina, Garner, Goldsboro, Hillsborough, Holly Springs, Knightdale, Louisburg, Raleigh, Rocky Mount, Wake Forest, Wendell, and Zebulon.

Direct or Simple Cremation – $1196.75

When calling another funeral home to compare cost, it is important to ask how much the total invoice will be after they add in the cost of the alternative container (required by the crematory), Certified Death Certificates, an urn and the NC Sales Tax.

The simple cremation service we provide includes the following…

  • Basic service of funeral director and staff
  • Transfer of remains
  • Alternative container (cardboard container)
  • Crematory fee
  • Three (3) Certified Death Certificates
  • Wooden rectangular shaped urn
  • NC Sales Tax

If you find any of our services less expensive on a current General Price List provided to you by another licensed funeral home in Wake County, NC, we will match the cost of that item and discount it by an additional 10%.

A Direct or Simple Cremation does not traditionally include a memorial service; however, the Funeral Director working with your family will be able to assist you with ideas or ways to celebrate your loved one’s life. The Funeral Director will discuss with you countless ways to honor, pay tribute or commemorate your loved one’s life at no additional charge.

We assist families throughout North Carolina and do NOT charge an additional mileage fee.

Immediate Burial – $2497.50

An Immediate Burial is when the body is taken directly from the place of death (or from the morgue) to the cemetery. Normally, the body stops at the funeral home just long enough to secure the death certificate and burial permit – and for the family to buy the cemetery plot, if needed. The body is then transported to the cemetery where it will be buried in a grave or entombed in a mausoleum crypt. With an Immediate Burial there is no funeral ceremony, visitation, grave side service, embalming or other body preparation.

The Immediate Burial package includes…

  • Basic services of the funeral director and staff
  • Removal of remains
  • Dressing and casketing
  • Local transportation to the cemetery
  • Your choice of a metal or wooden casket from our Casket Price List
  • Register book
  • Three (3) Certified Death Certificates
  • NC Sales Tax

Although immediate burials do not include any type of formal ceremony, many families like to hold a get-together at a relative’s home following the burial or have a memorial service at their place of worship. This allows the family to get a sense of closure without incurring additional expenses from the funeral home.

We assist families throughout North Carolina and do NOT charge an additional mileage fee.
