At Fitting Tribute, we believe that back-to-basics, family-centered funerals have the power to be transformational. We seek to instill meaning after a death through ritual and ceremony, and we include the bereaved in the creative process of honoring the uniqueness of the deceased. We've noticed that grieving families feel better when they're engaged in the caring and the planning, offered hands-on involvement and earth-friendly products.

It is not our assumption that a chemically-preserved or embalmed body is the only body that can be viewed by the family. Death is natural. Funerals can be natural too. We'll work with you to get the setting right, and give you all the time you need to say good-bye.

We'll also make every effort to come to you for the planning conference so that you don't have to step foot in a funeral home if that's something you don't care to do. We believe that funerals should not break the bank and we offer products that are reasonably priced, earth-friendly, and sometimes hand-made.

Here's how we help nyc families

  • Respectfully and compassionately transfer the deceased from place of death.

  • Manage burial or cremation arrangements with any cemetery or Green-Wood Cemetery's crematory in Brooklyn.

  • Locate the right casket or urn (we specialize in earth-friendly vessels).

  • Suggest and secure the best, most convenient chapel or memorial service venue.

  • Book the livery (limousines, sedans, or SUVs).

  • Counsel families of diverse backgrounds, mixed or blended faiths, on funeral readings or liturgy.

  • File for the death certificate and promptly obtain as many copies as you need.

  • Assist with the digital obituary or death notice.

  • Create prayer cards and funeral programs (based on your typed order of service)

  • Cue recorded music from our speakers, or book musicians for your service.

  • Arrange military honors for veterans.

  • Help out with flowers, videos, slide shows.

  • Find a caterer or restaurant for your meal after the service.

  • Recommend local oral historians, biographers and filmmakers to help preserve the life.

  • Make at-need house-calls for arrangements, and in the case of a cremation, we will personally deliver the urn to your NYC residence.

 

A casket doesn't need to be fancy. We encourage some families to slip letters into the box or actually decorate it.

We like traditional casket sprays, but we love the alternatives--huge bundles and garlands of rosemary, lavender, and eucalyptus tied with biodegradeable silk ribbon, all thanks to the smart design team at Zuzu's Petals in Brooklyn.
