Order Of Service Funeral


Few Advices To Help Lower Costs Of Memorial Service

Burial arrangements are normally made by close family members and friends of the deceased person. It is essential that you work out how much money you can afford for the burial arrangements, as there are many expenses to be covered. If you don't have a lot of money to spend, there are a few measures you can take to help you keep funeral costs as low as possible.

Making your own burial arrangements is usually cheaper than having to hire someone else to do it. However, if you must hire someone to help you with the organization, find someone whose services are affordable. Also, only outsource the specific services you want instead of getting a whole package deal that you may not use fully.

If you can't afford the cost of holding a burial, you can opt to have the body cremated. This is a cheaper option as the only thing that is required is to buy a casket and have it cremated. Make sure the rest of the family agrees with this option.

Shop around and look for affordable caskets. Request to view low cost models. Caskets are usually one of the most expensive items in a burial. Lower priced models are usually made from soft wood. The other option is not to buy a casket but to use a shroud instead.

Minimize the usage of vehicles and flowers. You do not need to hire expensive cars to transport the body and mourners. If you have your own vehicle, consider using it as a hearse. You can organize to have a few wreaths as flowers can be expensive. Ask guests to make financial donations instead of buying flowers.

Find a venue and officiant who charge reasonable prices for conducting the memorial service. If there is anyone in the family who is qualified to offer these services, you can request them to do so. You can also ask friends to act as pall bearers and dig the grave to help keep funeral costs down.
