How Much Does A Cremation Urn Cost?

Many people now opt for cremation rather than burials for various reasons including preference, eco-friendly option, and its cost-effectiveness. After cremation, the cremains or ashes are handed over to the family in an urn or container of their choice.

While some families keep the urn, in their home others may bury it in their backyard or in a cemetery while others keep it in a columbarium, a structure built for this purpose in some cemeteries or funeral homes. At Tindall Funeral Home, we like to keep our clients informed about various services and related costs.

Urn Pricing

Depending on a family’s or individual’s preference, there are various types of urns to choose from. This cost could be part of the plan the family chooses when they are considering cremation. The urn’s material, size, and style are all crucial aspects of its cost. The urn costs start at $129 for a permanent, full-sized urn. It can be as simple or elaborate as you want it to be. Some people also opt for green burial urns which cost much less and can be in the range of $50 to $200.

You can discuss your requirements with the funeral director and they will provide you with all the details and information you need regarding urns, the materials, types and costs. If you are planning to place the urn in your home or some other location where it will be seen, you may want to invest in a pricier piece. On the other hand, if you are planning to bury the urn, you could consider a simpler urn at a lower cost.
