How can I save money by arranging a cremation?

A cremation can be much cheaper than a traditional burial. There is no need for a casket, embalming, or cemetery fees, and this alone can save you thousands of dollars. It is also possible to arrange a basic cremation with a funeral home in Knoxville and then conduct your own memorial services once you have the cremated remains returned. This can be another way to save money and also make the tribute so much more personal.

What is the average cost of a cremation in Knoxville?

According to the Cremation Association of North America (CANA), the average cost of a cremation is $3,200.  This is, of course, a national average cost, and the average cost of cremation also depends not only upon where you live but also on exactly what services are included with any cremation package.  Arranging a direct cremation in Knoxville for just $1,295 complete is possible.

End of life services and experiences are something most of us choose not to reflect upon until we are suddenly faced with dealing with it. I have been contributing comprehensive and independent resources for families that explain how the funeral industry operates, and the laws that govern funeral practices.
