More families today are looking to save money on the cost of a funeral, and turning to the Internet to conduct cremation price comparisons. The only problem with this is that many funeral homes in Jacksonville do not disclose funeral prices on their websites.
Although the FTC rule made it federal law for funeral homes to have a general price list and to make this available to families either in person or by phone, still too many funeral homes choose NOT to include this on their website. This makes it difficult for families at the time of need to effectively use the Internet to price shop for funeral services.
We at DFS Memorials wanted to simplify this and help families by easily connecting them with a local Jacksonville funeral home that offered the best value cremation services. We wanted to take the hassle out of funeral price shopping for families.

Cheap direct cremation from a Direct Disposer in Jacksonville
Florida is one of only two states where Direct Disposers are licensed and can operate without funeral home facilities. Cremation costs from a Direct Disposer may initially seem much cheaper, but I would suggest you carefully check the small print of an offered budget cremation from a Direct Disposer. It is not unknown for charges such as refrigeration or out-of-hours collection to significantly increase the cremation cost.
