Funeral Burial Costs


Best Advices For Lowering Memorial Service 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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
