Simply having to reach out to a funeral home can feel overwhelming. Our goal is to simplify the entire funeral home experience and make this process as easy as possible. We hope to eliminate any unnecessary surprises by publishing our total cost and the services we provide directly on our website. Hopefully this simple gesture helps provide your family with a little piece of mind.
When calling another funeral home to compare cost, it is important to ask how much the total invoice will be after they include additional costs like the cost of the alternative container, Certified Death Certificates, the NC Sales Tax and any other additional fees. Our prices already include all of those things. Raleigh news station WRAL thinks our belief in transparency is newsworthy.
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%.
Nobody likes surprise costs added in at the last minute. We guarantee you will not find any hidden charges here. We include everything you need for a simple or direct cremation. Simple, affordable and reliable. We have not changed the cost of our direct cremation service since we opened City of Oaks in 2012.
City of Oaks Funeral Home and Cremation provides an affordable cremation option with onsite visitation. Nobody likes surprise costs added in at the last minute. We guarantee you will not find any hidden charges here. Simple, affordable and reliable.
An immediate burial has the same end result as a traditional burial; however, we have eliminated the extra (sometimes unnecessary) services prior to getting to the cemetery. Not everyone wants an open casket for viewing or a limousine for the family. Despite the term immediate, we can move as fast as you need or as slow as you like. This option simply allows you to save money by eliminating some of the fancy extras at the funeral home.
We offer the same traditional funeral services as the big corporately owned funeral homes in the area; however, we cost about half the amount. You might consider a traditional funeral service if your family is looking for an open casket visitation, a traditional church service or a funeral service in the funeral home's chapel. A traditional funeral service can be altered to fit the needs of your family.
This establishment is one of a select number of funeral homes who meet the criteria for providing green funeral service by the Green Burial Council; a tax-exempt, nonprofit organization working to encourage environmentally sustainability in the field of funeral service. Our Green options allow for a funeral to take place without the use of toxic and non-biodegradable materials/chemicals.
As an alternative to traditional cremation, City of Oaks Funeral Home also offers Aquamation. The Aquamation process, often referred to as alkaline hydrolysis, uses a solution of water and potassium hydroxide to facilitate natural decomposition.

Our team takes pride in being able to assist families with a wide range of cultures, religions, economic 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.

Chapel Capacity Limit
City of Oaks Cremation, LLC limits our on-site memorial services, visitations, funeral services and/or religious services to a maximum of 44 individuals in attendance. The City of Raleigh believes our intimate chapel is simply not large enough to safely accommodate larger groups. We completely agree... for this reason, all services held onsite are required to be private as well as unadvertised.
