Estimating how much a funeral will cost can be tricky.
Average funeral costs continue to rise and there are many elements to consider: services, casket, vault, embalming, gravesite, and more. To make matters worse, funeral service providers and cemeteries expect payment in full at the time of the funeral. It’s little wonder that shopping for a funeral can be overwhelming.

Things to Keep in Mind

Funeral costs of Cremation vs Burial: one of the reasons that cremation is on the rise is because it can be significantly lower than the cost of burial.

The exact cost of a funeral will depend on the quality of the casket, burial vault and other merchandise selected.

A Direct Burial  (no service) or Cremation can be arranged for under $1,000. We recommend that you consider holding a memorial service of some kind, even an informal one, to acknowledge the passing of your loved one. The best way to manage funeral costs is to pre-plan.

Ask for help. It may help to bring a trusted friend or family member with you when you shop. Your companion can speak on your behalf if difficult negotiations are involved. The decisions to be made are extremely personal and emotional. You may be grieving and not in the best frame of mind to make big financial decisions. The person should be someone you trust and who you think has a personality that will be calming for you.
