Our legacy of service reaches back to 1883, when a young couple – farmers who made extra money singing at weddings and funerals – started a family business as undertakers. For decades, they served their neighbors in Broome County at Allen Memorial Home and built a reputation for providing exceptional care and compassionate service.

Over 130 years later, that business still operates under the same principles. But our methods have had to change. Cremation has become an increasingly popular choice for families who are looking to create more simple, economical celebrations of life.

Part of caring for a community is being able to adapt with the changing needs of its families. To better serve the people of Broome and surrounding Counties, we’ve launched Simplicity Cremations, LLC. This website was designed with you in mind, and our process is streamlined to make planning more affordable. You’ll never be pressured, but we’re always here for you if you have questions.

Most importantly, when you plan with Simplicity Cremations, you know you’ll be treated with professionalism, and your loved one will be served with dignity and respect. Simplicity Cremations is actually located in the same building as Allen Memorial Home, Inc. and staffed by its directors. We make quality cremation seamless and affordable, and with us, what you see is what you get. You’ll never be surprised by hidden fees or additional costs.

Endicott and the rest of Broome County sure has changed a lot since 1883, but one thing never will: our commitment to serving you and your family with excellence and care. We are neighbors, after all.
