Cost of Cremation

While most funeral homes do offer cremation services, we own and operate an on-site crematorium, enabling us to take full responsibility for the entire process. And we’ve been doing it for years. As with any major spending decision, it’s always wise to weigh one’s options. Such is also true when selecting a funeral or cremation provider to make a valid “apples to apples” comparison.

If you want to arrange a direct cremation, you can use an alternative container. Alternative containers encase the body and can be made of materials like fiberboard or composition materials (with or without an outside covering). A plain cardboard box can be used at no additional charge. Wood or veneer Cremation Caskets may also be selected, if desired. The containers we provide are:

Dawson Tan Cloth-Covered cardboard and fiberboard $975
