Here Are 20 Tips To Have An Affordable Cremation Service

1) Pre-plan your own cremation: Planning ahead allows you to make decisions about what type of services and products you want to be included in your cremation service.

2) Shop around for providers: Check prices and services offered by different cremation providers before making a decision. (Then Check Us Out)

3) Consider direct cremations: Direct cremations are the most affordable option, as they do not include typical funeral services such as visitation, embalming or other services typically associated with funerals.

4) Look into state laws: Each state has its own laws regarding what is required of a cremation service provider, so make sure you fully understand what is necessary in your particular area.  (Let Us Help)

5) Learn all costs involved: Make sure to ask about all fees associated with the service, including transportation costs, death certificates, and any other charges that may apply.

6) Consider cremation packages: Many providers offer pre-set packages for their services, allowing you to get a better deal on a variety of services. (Check Our Prices)

7) Consider going without embalming: Embalming is expensive and not always necessary. Ask your provider if it’s possible to avoid this cost.

8) Take advantage of group discounts: Many providers offer special group discounts, so be sure to ask about them when arranging your service. (Then Check Our Prices)

9) Shop for an urn, cremation Jewelry, flowers,  or other memorial items online: You can often find much lower prices by shopping online instead of at the provider’s location.    (Check Our Collection)

10) Choose cremation jewelry instead of a standard casket: Cremation jewelry is a more affordable option for those looking to memorialize their loved one.

11) Have the service at your home: Having the service at your own home can save you significantly on rental costs and other fees associated with having it at a funeral home or crematorium.

12) Use alternatives to flowers: Families often opt for alternative options such as potted plants, balloons, and candles to decorate during the service instead of traditional floral arrangements.

13) Print obituaries from online templates: Instead of paying for an obituary to be printed in the newspaper, search online for pre-made templates that you can customize and print yourself.   (Ask About Our Collection)

14) Choose low-cost memorial items: There are plenty of options for inexpensive memorial items such as keychains, t-shirts, and mugs.

15) Ask friends or family members to speak: Instead of hiring a celebrant, you can ask close friends or family members to share memories and stories about your loved one during the service.

16) Have the service outdoors: Having an outdoor service is free and often allows for more people to attend than having it in a traditional funeral home or crematorium.

17) Reuse items from other services: If possible, consider borrowing or reusing items from previous services instead of buying new ones.

18) Keep decorations simple: Choose low-cost decorations that won’t break the bank but still help create an uplifting atmosphere for the service.

19) Consider a direct cremation with a memorial service: This is a great option if you want to keep costs low but still have some type of memorial service afterward.

20) Donate the remains: If your loved one wanted their ashes to be donated, you can save significantly on expenses by donating them instead of having them interred or scattered.


Having an affordable cremation service doesn't have to be hard, and these tips can help make it possible. 

Remember that there are options available for families who don’t want to break the bank, so always do your research before making any decisions. 

With careful planning and creative thinking, you can arrange an affordable and meaningful cremation service for the final arrangements, which will help to keep costs lower.
