Cost of Cremation in 2020
After a loved one passes away, those left behind are tasked with handling the funeral and burial process. With the average cost of a traditional funeral ranging between $7,000 and $12,000, many families consider cremation. Solie Funeral Home & Crematory helps those who have recently lost a loved one find the best service options and navigate the cremation process.
The cost of cremations in the United States typically ranges from $1,500 to $7,000. Depending on location, the services you request, the cremation service, and the provider you choose to work with. The cost for cremation varies widely.
Cremation itself is a straightforward process, but your family’s wishes play a major role in determining the final cost. Keep in mind that adding on services such as viewings, a memorial service, and witness cremation will increase the cost of a cremation.
Direct Cremation Costs Are Lower Than Average Funeral Costs
The most cost-effective option is direct cremation. On average, in the United States, direct cremations cost $1,500. This low-cost cremation service allows you to forgo high funeral costs while still paying respect to your loved one.
Direct cremation prices will usually include basic services such as your loved one’s transportation to the crematorium, a cremation casket, the cremation process, and the return of your loved one’s ashes in a simple container. Costs for cremation also include filing the necessary paperwork and permits.
The cremation provider you choose handles all aspects of the process from start to finish. However, with direct cremation, you typically forgo optional add-ons such as embalming, body preparation, viewing and visitation, as well as any graveside services. Since direct cremation is such a simple process, cremation costs are usually much lower than they would be if you chose to work with a funeral home.
