Loss is difficult to bear at times. It might be challenging to deal with the funeral, burial arrangements and cremation costs because of the emotional stress and the financial burden.

Cremation Costs To Know About

A funeral and memorial service will typically set you back roughly $7,640. Since this is the case, Tindall Funeral Home has witnessed a rise in demand for our more affordable cremation services. There are several expenses to keep in mind if you're thinking about cremation:

The combined price of cremation and memorial services could be anywhere from $350 and $4,000. But if the family decides they don't need the funeral home's services, it can significantly reduce the price of a direct cremation because it takes place soon after death.

One way to reduce stress is to opt for direct cremation, managed entirely by the crematorium or cemetery. A wake and viewing are optional with a direct cremation, although some people still prefer to hold them.

In a cremation, a casket isn't required but can be bought if the family chooses. It is customary to acquire an attractive urn to hold and show off the cremated remains in a place of a casket, but if the ashes are going to be spread, the urn is unnecessary. This will reduce cremation costs.

Other Cremation Costs

The following are some additional expenses that may arise from a cremation:

  • If the chosen cemetery doesn't have a crematorium on-site, the remains will have to be sent elsewhere, which would incur additional costs.
  • A death certificate must be obtained when someone dies. This official government document includes the deceased person's name, address, date, and time of death.
  • There are several situations in which you'd need a death certificate. Pension payments, life insurance claims, estate settlements, and burial arrangements necessitate it.
  • Apart from the death certificate, cremation permission is required before the cremation may take place.
  • While cremation is relatively straightforward, a funeral with a viewing and all the related expenses is undoubtedly possible. A casket and visiting hours at the funeral home are optional extras when cremation is chosen as the final disposition method.

In the end, it all boils down to what the departed would have wanted, and that's priceless. You have plenty of time to decide whether cremation or even immediate cremation, is right for you. The funeral director can help you with any additional information you need regarding cremation costs. Contact us at Tindall Funeral Home or call (315) 468-5521.
