Ideas To Help Lower Memorial Costs

Having a dignified send off for a loved one who has just died does not have to be an expensive venture. Organizing a memorial service can end up costing a lot if you do not make an effort to manage expenses. There are certain steps you can take to help you minimize funeral costs.

Even though organizing a burial can be hectic, it will be a lot cheaper if you opted to do it alone, with the help of family and friends rather than hire a funeral director. Nevertheless, if you feel that you need hired help, find a cheap option. Only pay for services that you actually need.

You should consider cremation. This is a low cost method of interment because it only involves buying a low cost coffin and having the body interred at a crematorium. There will be no need for a memorial service, viewing of the body or anything else. You must talk to family members to ensure that this is acceptable to all of them.

Buy a low cost coffin. You can buy something basic, but presentable. Shop around to and ask to see lower priced models. Alternatively, you can decide not to use a coffin at all and just use a shroud for burial.

No need to hire vehicles for the memorial service if your friends and family are willing to provide transportation. Get the exact number of vehicles you need, no need for an entourage. Also, having guests make financial donations rather than bringing flowers to the memorial service will help you get some extra money to cover burial expenses.

You can have the memorial service conducted at a family member's home to avoid having to hire a venue. You can also look around for an affordable officiant or have a friend or family member who is an ordained minister carry out the service. Have volunteer grave diggers and pallbearers so as to keep funeral costs down.
