     If you have lost a loved one and desire to have a simple or "direct cremation," please call us at (850) 610-4444.  We are happy to arrange an in-person meeting between you and either Skip Young, Owner and Licensed Funeral Director, or James Sircy, our licensed Funeral Director in Charge.   

          The best way for you to fully understand and experience the quality of care we will provide to your loved one and to you, is to come to our Funeral Home and Crematory, located at 4948 Six Oaks Drive, Tallahassee, FL  32303.  We are the only privately owned Funeral Home in Tallahassee, Florida with an on-site crematory.  This is important, because it means that your loved one will remain in our custody and care from the moment we pick them up, until the cremation process is completed and the cremains are returned to you, all here in Leon County.  

          All of our staff members are certified cremation technicians, and we take pride in ensuring that your loved one is treated with dignity and respect throughout the entire process.  We are a family owned and operated business and we treat all of the families that we serve, as if they are a part of our family.  

          The price set forth above will cover the costs of transporting your loved one to our funeral home up to 50 miles away.  Your loved one will be maintained in our refrigeration unit for up to 5 days, which is typically plenty of time to obtain the necessary authorizations and to complete the cremation.  We have the forms you will need to complete available electronically on the links listed below, for ease of completion by you.  We will take care of notifying the Social Security Administration regarding the death; obtaining all of the necessary authorizations and permits; filing of the death certificate with the Bureau of Vital Statistics; and providing a Death Notice to the Tallahassee Democrat. If you desire death certificates we will also obtain those for you, with you paying only the actual costs charged for them by the State of Florida.  They are typically in the range of $10 for each.   Some families also like to place obituaries in the Tallahassee Democrat, or other newspapers.  We are happy to assist you in placing the obituary but note that the newspaper determines the amount they will charge based on length and other factors.  At no additional expense to you, we will place a Memorial Tribute for your loved one online at YoungFulford.com.  Finally, upon completion of the cremation, your loved ones cremains will be placed in an attractive temporary urn for you.

          We offer a number of additional services you may decide you would like as well.  We have traditional memorial services, very unique celebrations of life arranged to fit the life that was lived, and a wide variety of urns and keepsakes to hold the cremains, including custom urns made by a private artist retained by Young ~ Fulford.  Please ask either Skip or James about these items if you are interested.   The cost of these additional goods and services are not included in the price set forth above but are available at reasonable costs to you.

          If you research other funeral homes, you may see "packages" offered to you that appear to be specially priced services.  We simply do not do business that way.  We do not want to sell you something you do not need or want by "packaging" goods and services together.  We let you select what you want from what we offer, providing you with the individual personal attention you deserve.  This does not mean we are not competitive in our pricing.   What it means to us is this:  Your loved one was born a unique individual, different than all others.  In passing they do not lose that uniqueness and their final disposition should be as special as they were.    

          We know that the most important thing to you is that your loved one continues to be cared for in a dignified and caring manner, and we assure you that the services provided by Young ~ Fulford Cremation and Funeral Services cannot be matched by others.
