Cremation is becoming more socially accepted by families who once opted for a traditional burial and many religions are accepting cremation as an alternative to a burial. Cremation can also be an economic decision, for families. People are becoming more educated in their options when a death has occurred and realize that cremation is the final disposition, just like a burial is the final disposition. This means the same type of services are available for cremation, such as, a traditional cremation, a memorial service with body present, memorial service without body presence or a direct cremation (no services). Because of people rethinking cremation as the final disposition, half of American choose cremation as the final disposition for their loved one.
The cost of cremation can vary drastically from one cremation provider to the next.. Millennium Crematory is the most reputable cremation provider in Indian River, St. Lucie and Brevard counties and has become a premier resource for families. Cremation prices do play an important role in a family’s decision on who they choose. The funeral industry is no different than other industries, in that, you really do get what you pay for. It’s understandable that pricing plays an important role, but, don’t let that be the only factor in your decision.
Cremation cost for a direct cremation is $795.00. This is without any service and does not include a newspaper notice (obituary), death certificates, or cremation merchandise such as a permanent urn.
When a direct cremation is chosen for the final disposition, families usually have some type of memorial service on their own.
