Funeral Costs

The cost of a funeral is different for each type of service. Thus far, the leading reason for cost variance is because it depends on the service type and location.

Cost Factors

So, the initial factor that applies is whether it is a burial or cremation service. Hence, burials are more expensive than cremation. It is due to the land or plot purchase. Thus far, crematorium fees are more economical than the plot. So, cremation is more affordable.

The other major funeral expense is the coffin or casket costs. It may range from $1000 to $4,000. For instance, the high-end caskets may cost more than $15,000. Thus far, coffin choice is one of the easiest to personalise. So, you may consider to choose on what you like and cost.

Then there are fees and charges. For instance, the professional fees include 24-hour transfer, mortuary care and preparation. Further to this, it is inclusive of administrative duties, hearse costs and staff costs. You may experience not all funeral director may itemise the costs. Thus far, there is no standard, which is why the variances.
