When seeking out funeral possibilities, cremation services will always be the most affordable option. Affordable cremation services are a great way to make sure that even cremation puts the least possible financial burden on you and your family.
If possible, take the time to price out, compare, and even pay for your future cremation service in advance. Decide what kind of service, if any, you may want. You can choose from three main options for a cremation:
- A cremation funeral, where the funeral service is held with the deceased present and then the cremation is conducted after the service.
- A cremation memorial, where the cremation is conducted before a memorial service is held. The memorial can be with or without the cremated remains present. This could also take the form of a scattering ceremony.
- A direct cremation, where the deceased is cremated with no formal services, and the remains are given back to the family. This is the most inexpensive cremation option.
Decide in advance the details of your cremation and your memorial to save yourself and your family money and time in the long run.
Invest in a high-quality urn.
The options for cremation urns are highly variable in price, and can cost up to several hundred dollars. Since you’re saving money on burial costs, you could choose to invest in a unique, high quality urn for your cremains. If you are having your cremains scattered, there is no need to purchase one. The box given by the funeral home will do just fine. You could also choose to use a container you already have, perhaps one that has some meaning to you, as an urn for yourself or a loved one.
