If you are considering cremation the information on this page and a quick call to our funeral director will help you make an educated decision during your time of need.
The cost of cremation often ranges in price if planned through a funeral parlor and pre-planning could help you make those hard decisions so your loved ones don’t have to. While the expense of cremation varies dependent on locality, it’s almost always substantially less than the price of a full body burial which is one of the arguments cited for cremation’s rising acceptance and attention around the world.
On the other hand, in addition to the cost of the typical cremation service ( processing a body into the ash-and-bones mixes called “cremains”) a lot of other expenses may be included for related paperwork, goods, and services, including things like:
- Getting a genuine death certificate and hard copies.
- Obtaining a certificate releasing the physical body for cremation, typically issued by a medical examiner or coroner.
- Moving the body from the place of death to the place of cremation.
- Disposing of the cremains by burying or scattering them.
- Taking out a pacemaker.
- Handling charges paid to funeral industry personnel (if involved).
- Buying or renting a casket or container.

Although these ancillary fees can add a few hundred to a few thousand dollars to the cost of cremation, the item that’s potentially the most expensive is usually a coffin (view coffin gallery), We can help you pick the right coffin that is both affordable and looks amazing. Many individuals who choose cremation decide not to invest in a casket and go with an URN (view URN gallery), but some prefer to have one during a funeral or memorial service at which the human body will be present– before cremation happens.
