Getting Help With Funeral Costs


Best Advices To Help Lower Memorial Costs

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.

Decide whether you want to make the burial arrangements on your own or you would rather hire a funeral director. Making your own arrangements would be much cheaper. If you would rather outsource the work to someone else, shop around and find the most affordable options. Also, instead of paying for a whole package deal, only pay for services that you need.

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.

Since the coffin is the single most expensive item in a burial, shop around for bargain deals. Do not feel shy to ask for lower priced models. The other option is not to buy a coffin at all and use a shroud instead.

Do not pay for expensive or extra vehicles and flowers if you do not have to. Use the available vehicles that friends and family are willing to offer. Also, instead of having guests bring flowers, ask them to make a donation instead that will go towards covering the cost of the burial.

Hiring a venue and an officiant for the memorial service can be expensive. Ask family and friends if they can provide a free venue where the ceremony can be held. Find an officiant who is not charging a lot of money for their services. To further lower funeral costs, have family members and friends act as pall bearers and also dig the grave.
