This is the type of service people don't want and is very difficult to put together. However, Dan and Mike are true professionals from the very beginning to the end. They were there to answer every question I had. They answered the phone and emails immediately. I cannot express enough how grateful I am to them for making such a hard experience in my life a little easier. From communication, service, cost and professionalism. This is a part of life that is hard to process and navigate, but when the time comes and anyone I know is in need for their services I will always recommend Affordable cremation. Dan and Mike, thank you for everything.

We had a family death in a different city while out of town ourselves. One phone call to Dan put everything in place and all was handled professionally. He was prompt and efficient with the entire process. His assistance well managed our difficult situation and we are appreciative.

Dan Geise and his associate, Mike, were extremely compassionate, professional and helpful in the process of my Mom's cremation. Their prices are affordable and are choices in cards, thank you notes and the Urns were all completed at once. There are many styles to choose from.
I'm very happy with the choice I made with Affordable Cremation in Belvidere, IL. Also, they planted a tree in honor of Mom which was very thoughtful and caring.
Forever Grateful,
The Family of Joanne Smith

The family of Robert D. Aden truly appreciated the compassion and professionalism of Dan Giese in regards to our father. He took our father into his care with great respect and was completely accommodating to our wishes through this difficult time. We highly recommend Affordable Cremation to anyone in need of their services.

Hello Dan, this is Donna koral...Shane’s aunt. I’ve wanted to write this for awhile. But then my sister died in CA. In either case I wanted to leave a testimonial to your service!! And I don’t know where to leave it! Dan and Affordable Cremation.... were Amazingly wonderful!!! It was a very emotional time with my nephews death. It was a complex situation not only with covid but many other factors! And Dan handled every part of the situation remarkably! He helped us to have a beautiful visitation with honor and dignity.

Dan and Tara were AMAZING. During the Covid-10 stay at home order, they helped me compassionately prepare final arrangements, paperwork and found someone to officiate the service for my brother that died suddenly. in less that 5 business days! it was beautiful and very respectful.. I was a mess......We safely held the service both in person and they assisted virtually with my equipment for out of state friends and family. I am from Colorado and knew no-one......Thank you so much from the bottom of my heart! I feel the angels were watching over us...Tina

After my father in law passed, we called around to a few funeral homes to ask for prices on viewings and cremations, and they were all astronomically high. We thought that we would have to forgo a viewing and just cremate without having the closure of seeing him one last time. I found Affordable Cremations through one last effort to find something within our budget and Dan did not disappoint. He was kind and compassionate, did great work with my father in law, and helped us put together a wonderful viewing so close friends and family got to say goodbye that never would have had the opportunity to before. I can’t thank him enough and recommend him to all who are going through a difficult time with the loss of a loved one.

I am so very grateful to have found Afforfable Creamations. They are very caring and professional. My fiancee passed earlier this month and even though it was and is a very hard time for my family and I, they have been a huge help. They have reached out to check on us and have shown such compassion and care.
I can't thank you enough for all you have done!

Couldn’t be more impressed with the service our family received. After my dad passed, we needed to find affordable services. We made many phone calls and heard lots of high prices, we found Affordable Cremation-we’re thankful we did.

Nana, my Mom, was 96. Dan gave complete information about the funeral and cemetery costs and funeral insurance policy. Of all the funeral homes we contacted, he was the only one who did.

When Nana passed away two months later, everything occurred as he promised and more. Dan’s service anticipated and managed a number of details.

We appreciated his service which was friendly and caring.

Mr. Dan Giese from affordable cremation was a saver midst of challenging times for the family. We just lost our brother. There should be time for the family to grieve before making arrangements, but that's not the reality. Mr. Giese and the affordable cremation was there to help us quickly and flexible in meeting our needs. Thank you.

I recently attended a service for a young woman who died quite suddenly. That alone was extremely difficult. I was very comforted by the services provided by Dan Giese, the owner of Affordable Cremation. Mr. Giese's kindness, compassion to the family and professionalism was lovely.

Later, when I sat with the family, they commented on how they were so well cared for by Mr. Giese, (Dan, as they called him). He took all the details and the family's wishes and produced a beautiful service appropriate for a young woman and a family in pain, bringing comfort in a time of sorrow.

Mr. Giese, Thank You for taking care of this family, my friends. I will always remember your kindness and will suggest to all that they call you when they need you.
