Need Help With Funeral Expenses


Few Ideas To Help Lower Costs Of Memorial

When a loved one dies, you have to start making burial arrangements as soon as possible. This is because the longer you wait to have the burial, the more expenses you are likely to incur. Burials can end up being quite expensive if you do not deliberately make an effort to keep your expenses down. There are some things you can do to keep funeral costs down.

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 the cost of a burial is too high for you, have the body cremated. All you will need to pay for are the cost of a cheap coffin and the crematorium fees. This will eliminate the need for a memorial service and the expenses that go with it.

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.

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.
