Cremation is broken down into three categories
- Simple Cremation – no rites or viewing, a family is just concerned with the disposition of the body. We tell families most of the time they will spend around $1500.00
- Cremation with a Memorial Service – there is no viewing but a ceremony will be held at a church or in our chapel. We tell families most of the time they will double the Simple Cremation fee and depending on honorariums to participants ( minister/musicians ) and obituary fees etc., they will spend $3000.00-$4000.00
- Cremation with viewing beforehand and a service. Everything looks very traditional only instead of driving to the cemetery to bury the body, the family gives final blessing for the body to be cremated. This option has expenses running about half of what traditional burial would be and costs approximately $5000.00-$6000.00 depending on the outside expenses.
Families sometimes want a viewing but no rite or ceremony and like option #2, they spend closer to $3000.00-$4000.00.
Our goal is to tailor each service to a family’s need and budget and help them feel ministered to in the process.
