Elizabeth Cremation and Crematory Services

Bradley, Smith & Smith Funeral Home services central and northern New Jersey, specifically the areas of Elizabeth, Summit, and Union Township. All three are quite close to both Newark and New York City and are thus greatly influenced by the culture of the area, as well as the heavy traffic of the nearby highways.


The City of Elizabeth, part of Union County, is home to roughly 125,000 residents and is one of the top five most populous cities in New Jersey. Highly diverse, Elizabeth is made up of twelve distinct neighborhoods, all with their own characteristics and personalities. Elizabeth is well-known as a strong educational center, with nationally ranked public, Catholic and Jewish private schools, large libraries, and, of course, the Ivy-league Princeton University, founded in 1746. Traffic is quite heavy, as it is attached to the Turnpike, I-95, I-278, and several other highways and freeways serving central New Jersey and into New York City.

Union Township, consisting of roughly 60,000 residents, has its roots in history.

Additionally, there are 69 buildings on the National Register of Historic Places in the township. Like Elizabeth, Union has many distinct neighborhoods, eight in total: Five Points, Vauxhall, Brookside Heights, Union Center, Putnam Ridge, Orchard Park, Putnam Manor, Larchmont Estates Parkside Manor, Green Lane, and Fairway Drive.
