We don't ask for any money upfront or at time of pickup but only at time of State approval for the cremation and/or before the funeral service.
A direct cremation where the person is taken directly to the crematory. Once the necessary forms and approvals are obtained, a cremation is performed. In Central Florida, the total costs are a $695 Cremation Package (Removal, Refrigeration, Cremation, Alternative Container, Notifying State/Local Agencies & Social Security and returning remains in Temp Container) + $35 Medical Examiner Permit. Death certificates are $10 each. For example, 2 death certificates would be $20 for a grand cremation total of $750.
A traditional cremation is where the person is embalmed and there is a viewing and potentially a service by clergy. The person is embalmed, dressed and placed in a casket for viewing hours. There is typically a viewing followed by a service at a local church and cremation takes place the next day. We do work with either your church or do have access to church's. The total cost is $2,295 and includes everything associated with a direct cremation plus a rental casket, embalming, dressing/light cosmetics, register book, viewing and service. The $35 Medical Examiner permit fee and death certificates would be added to that total. For example, 2 death certificates would still be $20 for the Grand Total of $2,350 plus any clergy fee that the church would charge us. (Typically $150).
A Cremation Memorial Service is where the person is cremated and a service is held at a local church. The loved one is typically in an urn at the front of the church. The total costs for a cremation memorial service would be $1,320 and includes everything associated with a direct cremation plus register book, tree of life wooden urn and use of a local church. The $35 Medical Examiner permit fee and death certificates would be added to that total. For example, 2 death certificates would still be $20 for the Grand Total of $1,375 plus any clergy fee that the church would charge us. (Typically $150)
A Traditional Funeral Burial Services is where the person is embalmed and there is a viewing and service at a church. The person is embalmed, dressed and placed in a casket for viewing hours. After the church service the person is transported via a hearse to a cemetery. The total cost is more variable than the other services because the family has to pick out a casket and there are cemetery fees associated which vary by cemetery location which we don't control. For example, costs could be as low as $3,495 for our services plus cemetery fees of $3,000 for a total cost of $6,495.
Now, we do other services as well like direct burials, ship out's and ship in's from other funeral homes around the country. This means if we want your loved one shipped to a different state, we would work with a funeral home in that city/state and coordinate the shipping of your loved one so that you may have a funeral in that city/state at a funeral home. Call for additional pricing.
** Examples above assume the person is under 250 pounds and have passed away in Central Florida. As a disclaimer, we have to say prices subject to change so please call us to discuss your specific needs. Again, we really try to keep it simple and straightforward.
Why aren't all funeral homes posting their pricing online?
