Funeral or cremation costs can be a financial burden, especially for families who have just lost an earning member. At The Jerry Spears Company, we explain all of the funeral or cremation costs in detail so clients can decide what kind of service they need. The costs can vary from one funeral home to another so it is best to contact us directly for details. Here’s a look at the expenses involved:
The average funeral cost can range from $7,000 to $12,000 based on what kind of service you choose. Funerals that end in cremation can cost anywhere between $6,000 and $7,000, which means this option is more affordable. It is also possible to book a direct cremation if you’re on a tight budget. If you choose direct cremation, the body is transported to the cremation center after death and is cremated as soon as the funeral home has the permit from local authorities.
