Bradley & Son Funeral Homes, Chatham, NJ
Bradley & Son Funeral Homes has a long history of serving NJ families from Morris, Union, and Essex Counties through five funeral home locations. For for more than 70 years, the Bradley family has provided compassionate care and comfort during life’s most difficult moments, with services ranging from traditional burials and cremations to an extensive after-care bereavement support program.
1943 was the pinnacle year when William A. Bradley bought the 345 Main Street, Chatham, location. William’s son, Richard, joined the business in 1961 and his grandson, Scott, joined in 1987. Through the next several decades, Scott acquired a number of funeral homes in the area and also established an innovative website for arranging direct low-cost cremations entirely online. That website was the forerunner of SimpleCremationOnline.com, and it has been a popular choice locally for families searching for low-cost, simple cremations which still provide dignified and personal care.

The staff at Bradley & Son Funeral Homes, in partnership with SimpleCremationOnline.com, have been trained to make the arrangement process go as smoothly as possible for you. The main emphasis of our business is to provide a service that is trustworthy, professional, and protects the personal information of our clients. When you first need us, you can simply log onto the website from home and contact our staff, who will arrive at the place of death dressed in a manner that gives the respect to the occasion that it deserves. Your loved one will receive proper treatment during transportation as well, in a secure, locked vehicle that will deliver your loved one to Bradley & Son Funeral Homes.
At the facility, senior staff will monitor and track the process so that all of your wishes have been followed. Of course, before staff can continue, they must have proper identification of the deceased individual. This can be done on SimpleCremationOnline.com through our unique and secure Posi-ID Portal. The portal requires a family member to make a positive identification and from there, the staff will proceed to the cremation process. A staff member will witness the beginning of the cremation process as well to ensure the identity of the remains that you receive.
Cremation allows for greater flexibility, allowing services to be arranged at a time that is more convenient for family members who may have to travel some distance or would otherwise be unable to attend services due to work or other commitments. Cremation also allows for a meaningful service to be planned weeks or even months after a loved one has passed, where the ashes may be committed to the land, sea, or air. These ceremonies, often held after the healing process has begun, give family and friends a chance to come together to share memories of their loved one in a way that is profoundly comforting.
