How Can I Find Out About The Price Of Low Cost Funerals?

A common misconception about funerals is that the higher the price tag, the more cherished the deceased were by their loved ones in life. However, this isn’t the case. Low cost funerals could allow for greater personalization and provide additional options to celebrate life in the manner it was lived, making it as special as a more expensive funeral service.

Low Cost Funerals Pricing

Many families end up forking out several thousand dollars for products and funeral services they don't want or even require simply because they are unaware they have a choice in the matter. At Sholom Chapel, we think it's important to inform customers about their options for funeral services so they can choose what they need and do not overspend.

Estimating the price of a funeral can be challenging because costs vary widely between funeral homes and depend on the type of service being planned. Whether a body is buried or cremated, what kind of funeral service is held, what type of casket is used, and other incidental costs like flowers and food all contribute to the final cost. Due to different land and crematory fees, state government fees, and transport costs, the location also significantly impacts funeral costs. You need to keep these factors in view while planning a funeral.

However, because of costs like the burial plot cost, headstone, cemetery upkeep, and an extra fee, if a final committal ceremony is held at the gravesite, burials are typically more expensive than cremations. The average cost of a traditional funeral is $5,000–$10,000. In contrast, cremations range in price from $2,000 to $5,000, but depending on the options, they can even cost as little as $1000, putting them in the low cost funerals category.

Direct Cremations Are An Affordable Option

Direct cremation is typically the most cost-effective final disposition method. Because there will be no formal funeral service and no chapel or celebrant is required, there will be less money spent on catering, flowers, printing the order of service, and funeral notices. In the absence of a formal ceremony, an expensive casket and embalming services are typically unnecessary, reducing the costs even further.

We provide low cost funerals and help with preplanning. For more information, please get in touch with Sholom Chapel, and our experts will revert soon to discuss your requirements. We are here to offer you the best services and personalized attention.
