Cremation Cost Factors

Compare Funeral Costs: Cremation Urn and Memorial vs. Casket and Headstone

For those planning a funeral with limited financial resources, it is prudent to evaluate the cost of cremation urns and memorials compared to a casket and headstone. Cremation offers the most versatility and opportunity to control costs for those on a budget, while burial costs mount quickly.


Compare Cremation Costs to Burial Costs

The first cost difference between cremation and burial comes with preparation of the body. Housing the body, collecting burial certificates, and preparing the deceased for burial averages around $1,600. The second cost difference is between the burial casket and the cremation container.
