Our arrangement is designed for simplicity. As cremation specialists, we are able to begin our services immediately upon being contacted. An American Heritage representative will then make the necessary arrangements with the responsible party. It is not necessary for the responsible party to travel in person to Florida if they are out of the area. Completion of the Vital Statistics for Death Certificate Information Form below allows us to begin processing the necessary information immediately.

The above services represent all that is necessary for a complete, simple cremation. Our fees are all inclusive by region and No additional fees or charges are needed to complete the arrangement. If desired, other options such as formal urns, vaults and memorial products are available for additional cost, but are not necessary.




The number of people who prefer cremation is increasing rapidly. In Florida, the percentage approaches 50%, and the numbers are steadily growing in every state. Recent projections by the Cremation Association of North America reflect a national average of 47% by the year 2012. In other developed nations like Japan and the countries of Scandinavia, percentages reach as high as 95%.
Individual reasons for choosing cremation are as varied as the alternatives. High cost of funerals, concerns for the environment, cold-weather constraints, and ease of transportation to distant burial site are just a few. But most people choose cremation for its simplicity.
At American Heritage Cremation Society, Simple Cremation services consist of transportation from place of death; temporary shelter of remains; completion of necessary documents, obtaining permits and authorizations and preparation of death certificate; standard cremation container; cremation procedure; and delivery of cremains to designated destination (providing a selection of permanent urns, if desired).


Cremation is a computerized thermal process of applied heat and dehydration that reduces the human body to its basic elements. It is accomplished in a special chamber called a retort, taking approximately one to two hours.
The cremated remains (often referred to as "ashes") are called cremains and usually weigh from four to nine pounds. They are enclosed in a sealed heavy polyurethane bag and packaged in a container suitable for transport. Urns, or permanent containers, can be selected and purchased separately if desired. (Artistic designs and materials vary according to individual tastes and/or final disposition requirements of the cemetery or columbarium).
In a religious context, the human body originating from and returning to the basic elements of nature, "dust", is a Biblical principle, expressed in Genesis 2:7 and 3:19, Ecclesiastes 3:20 and 12:7, Psalms 22:29 and 103:14, 1 Corinthians 15:47, and other passages. Natural decay and decomposition is God's immutable law for returning the body to "dust."


BURIAL in cemeteries,* urn gardens, at sea or at a National Cemetery for veterans and their spouses.

INURNMENT in a niche of a columbarium in cemeteries, churches and other locations. *

SCATTERING in a memorial garden of a cemetery or church, at-sea, over private property, and a host of other personal options.

KEEP AT HOME in a permanent urn. This is often done with consideration for later transport and or burial.

"KEEPSAKES" are miniature urns or pendants designed to contain a portion of the cremains while the remainder is buried, scattered or inurned.

*If using a private cemetery, you may need to purchase a permanent urn or vault, an opening & closing as well a marker. These are not requirements of American Heritage Cremation Society.


Our company was first incorporated in Florida in October of 1997. We immediately began serving clients from our original location in Lakeland. In 1998 our company relocated to the Tampa Bay area, in a legal center on Court Street in Clearwater. We served families from that location until March of 2003, when we purchased the commercial establishment currently in use as our administrative office in Holiday, Florida. Our administrative location coordinates all services throughout the state of Florida.
