Funeral costs can range from several hundred dollars to several thousand dollars, it depends on the services you choose. The price for a direct cremation without ceremony, will cost considerably less than a funeral service with visitation, embalming, and a casket and burial vault. The funeral home will give you a general price list. Study it thoroughly, make all of your necessary choices, then carefully review the written statement that lists the charges for your selections. Remember, your funeral director is a trusted resource. If something does not make sense, or if you have questions, request a thorough explanation. Ask as many questions as you need, until everything has been explained.
Funeral service charges usually fall into three categories:
You determine the cost of the funeral. It helps to have a sense of what you want prior to meeting with the funeral director. When you meet, stick to your, or your family’s, wishes and do not hesitate to omit unnecessary or unwanted items. Again, if something does not make sense, always ask for an explanation. Decisions should be based on your needs, and that is what determines the final cost. A quality funeral director will prioritize your family’s needs and will work with you to do what is best for your family.
