Are you deciding which between a traditional burial and a cremation would be the best option for your deceased loved one? One of the deciding factors is budget. You need to consider what would work best for your family’s budget.

Burial

A burial typically starts at $7000 and can go as high as $10000 depending on the services that you will get. This includes the basic package from the Coquitlam funeral home, transportation of the remains to the funeral home, the embalming process, preparation of the body for the funeral service, funeral service arrangements, staffing, transportation services, casket, and funeral service paraphernalia.

There are many ways that family members can reduce the costs of a traditional burial. They can opt for direct burial. A direct burial doesn’t include a viewing or a funeral service. Once the body has been embalmed and prepared, it will go directly to the burial ceremony.

Family members can also choose to hold a memorial service later. The memorial service can be arranged with the help of the funeral director.

Cremation

Cremation is usually cheaper than a traditional burial. The average price starts at $5600 but depending on the services, it can go as high as $8,600.

This should include the basic package from the funeral home in Coquitlam, transportation, services for the bereaved family, cremation fee, container and urn, and facilities depending on whether or not the family will hold a ceremony.

Just like a direct burial, family members can also lower the costs by getting a direct cremation. In direct cremation, the remains will go directly to the crematorium. Family members can also skip the funeral service and have a memorial service later. The remains don’t have to be immediately buried. Scattering the ashes can be done to make it more special and also reduce the costs as you don’t need to buy land for the resting place of the deceased.

They can also choose a home-made or a cheaper kind of urn to reduce the costs of the cremation. Anything that can hold the ashes can be used as an urn so you don’t necessarily have to buy the ones sold by the Coquitlam funeral home unless it is a part of the service.

Make sure you weigh down your options and decide what would be the choice for your family. Choose a funeral home that has a good reputation when it comes to giving the best service such as Amherst.
