How Much Does An Average Funeral Cost


Few Advices To Help Lower Memorial Service Charges

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.

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 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.

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.

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.
