Arranging a low cost cremation in Boca Raton FL – $995

Why direct cremation?

Cremation is a popular disposition choice in Florida, and the SE Florida area has some of the lowest-cost cremation services in the U.S. This is partly because Florida is one of only two states where direct disposers are licensed.

A direct disposer does not have to operate a funeral establishment or an embalming facility to legally run a cremation-only business, which can significantly reduce overheads. However, be careful, as sometimes a direct disposer’s seemingly cheap cremation price will not include some services that a licensed funeral home includes.

I have been researching and writing about the death care industry for the last fifteen years. 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. Sara writes for US Funerals Online and DFS Memorials LLC, as well as contributing to other forums and publications for the death care industry. I have a BA in Cultural Studies. This helps my analysis of cultural death care rituals, alongside a career background in Business Management. The death care industry is undergoing an epoch of change and this fascinates me.
