cremation services By Michael Gunderud

Born in New Jersey and raised by his grandparents, Michael learned early on the value of hard work, old fashioned values, and perseverance. In his early years, he lost his dear brother in a car accident. Shortly thereafter, his focus and calling was aimed at helping others going through a loss. Michael has dedicated his time and effort in funeral services since 1998, where he worked as a Funeral Director and Embalmer for family owned funeral homes in the North East.


Today, his determination has allowed him to successfully own and manager a number of funeral related businesses, including major .com's and an online cremation urn company. Michael owns, manages and has developed over 81 active websites, related to funeral and cremation services on a national platform. His work continues to assist families with the latest in cremation options and services. 


The concept of direct cremation has been around for a long time, however, most funeral directors avoided it. Many funeral home's dismissed it's meaning and families generally were placed in the shadows of traditional, or more lucrative arrangements. As the demand continued to rise for simple cremation arrangements, more funeral homes began to reluctantly adapt to the requests. In turn, prices began to rise for these basic services. 


Michael harnessed the demand for direct cremation many years ago. As a matter of fact, he is also one of the few who have seamlessly combined today's technology with electronic cremation arrangements and added other convenient online features. His trademarked business, Cremation Services By The Sea, is one of the first direct cremation businesses that gives families progressive choices and pressure free options. Combined with a lateral urn business and paperless arrangement forms that can be accessed by any smart phone, tablet or computer right from the users finger tips, is a new approach for an ancient business.


The concept and design for Cremation Services By The Sea, is secure and effectively gives the power of decisions back to families, just like yours. All pricing information, packages and services are also transparent and immediately available online. Families no longer have to wait for mail, faxes or emailed information from a funeral home or funeral director. 


Michael continues to work as the manager for Cremation Services By The Sea, while also finding new ventures within funeral services. In the coming year, Cremation Services By The Sea is looking to expand. By The year 2018 a new modern and high tech crematory will be opening under Michael's direction.
