How to arrange a low cost cremation in Waco, TX

Cremation is gaining popularity as an alternative to traditional burial in Waco.  Although the cremation rate in Texas is still way below the national average, it is growing exponentially, as families choose less expensive funeral options.  As acceptance of cremation grows, and more families decide that they cannot afford to spend thousands of dollars on funeral expenses, we are sure to see cremation become a preferred choice.

Why choose cremation?

There are several reasons cited as to why families today choose cremation.  The most common reason is the price.  A cremation will cost significantly less than a traditional burial.  A cremation will generally cost at least half the cost of a traditional funeral – if not less.  So opting for cremation is a sure-fire way to make a funeral more affordable, just the savings on such items as the casket, embalming, and the cemetery fees, save thousands of dollars.  Yet a cremation service can be just as traditional and dignified as a burial service.

Other reasons why cremation is becoming more accepted is a declining religious traditionalism, a greater interest in more environmentally-friendly alternatives to traditional burial, and a more transient population.   For many individuals cremation is just a personal choice that offers a simple, less costly, and more flexible means to conduct a funeral.

How much does a cremation cost in Waco?

This is the all-important question that many families wish to find the answer to!  Too often funeral homes do not disclose cremation prices in their marketing literature or websites.  It is important to understand that the cost of a cremation in Waco can vary considerably, depending upon the funeral provider you select.

A simple, direct cremation costs around $1,095 but It is fair to say that the average cost of a cremation can be up to $3,200 for a cremation with a service and a standard urn.  However, you can pay more, or less, than this for a cremation service.  It largely depends upon the professional fees a funeral home charges and the ancillary services/products you select (such as if a ceremony is conducted, the type of cremation urn, whether memorial products and an obituary are included).

A basic cremation service: Arranging a direct cremation in Waco

The lowest cost cremation in Waco is what is known as an immediate cremation or a direct cremation.  This is where the deceased is collected and cremated without any viewing or ceremony.  The cremated remains are returned to the family in a basic temporary urn (unless a cremation urn is selected).  A direct cremation service can be arranged in Waco for $1,095 complete. This form of arranging a simple cremation enables families to conduct death care at a low cost and arrange their own memorial service or ash scattering at a time and place convenient for them.

How can I compare cremation costs between funeral homes in Waco?

One thing we have always recommended families is that you should consult more than one funeral home and compare funeral quotes.  Now we understand that this can seem daunting if you are grieving and do not want to make numerous phone calls or visits.  For this reason, DFS Memorials wanted to take the hassle out of shopping around for cremation prices.  We selected a licensed funeral home in Waco that we know offers one of the best prices on cremations.  This means we can direct you straight to a local, family-owned funeral company that will offer you exceptional value for money as well as meaning your needs are being serviced by a local business.

I cannot afford a funeral: What help is there towards funeral costs?

More families today are finding it a struggle to meet funeral costs, especially if they were unexpected.  So what can you do if you can’t afford to pay for a funeral?  Any public aid for funeral expenses is very patchy at best and varies by each state and county.  All states do have a responsibility to care for indigent funerals, but this is generally for those who become the responsibility of the state, and not generally for those who just do not have the savings to meet the cost of a funeral.  Some funeral homes will offer payment plans or funeral financing, but it is not always easy to get approval.  Local organizations and charities often have some funding to assist those on welfare with funeral expenses.  If you are worried about how you can pay for a funeral, you really need to focus on keeping your funeral costs as low as possible.  Direct cremation will be the lowest cost funeral option you can do.

Also, remember that there is the $255 Social Security death benefit if you qualify and that veterans are entitled to some benefits.

Cremation costs in Louisville, KY – $750 direct cremation

The high costs of dying are leading more families to consider cremation as a less expensive alternative to a traditional funeral. Yet trying to compare the differences in cremation costs between different funeral service providers in Louisville can be a daunting and time-consuming task.

Not all funeral homes even opt to provide cremation prices on their websites, and even when you call a funeral home, you cannot always get a straight answer about funeral costs.

This article runs through how cremation can save you money on your overall funeral costs and explains how arranging a simple direct cremation can save you thousands of dollars. We compare a few of the lead providers of affordable cremation services in Louisville and provide tips on how to do your own memorialization and claim any financial assistance available.

How can you save money arranging a cremation?

Although Kentucky is still a more traditional state in favor of burial, high funeral costs and difficult economic times have given many families no choice but to opt for cremation.

The average traditional funeral costs around $9,000 (NFDA 2021), and this does NOT include cemetery costs. So a burial funeral can amount to between $10,000 and $15,000. Not many families have $10,000 to hand if their lost loved one had not made provision for his/her funeral arrangements!

A cremation can immediately remove the need for expensive cemetery property. A burial plot is not required, nor is a burial vault. No casket is needed for the cremation. [Some funeral service providers offer rental caskets for those wishing to hold a viewing or service before the cremation] And no embalming is necessary.

Eliminating these few products and services can reduce your funeral bill by thousands of dollars.

So how much does a cremation cost in Louisville?

Good question! And this largely depends on what kind of cremation service you require and, more importantly, which cremation services provider you select. The cost for a cremation service WILL differ significantly for the same service from different funeral homes!

There are several options with a cremation service that can determine how much it will cost. A cremation funeral service (where a funeral service is held before the cremation is conducted) is likely to cost in the region of $2,500 to $4,500. Costs will depend upon whether a casket is purchased or rented for the purpose of the funeral ceremony and other ancillary costs such as memorial stationery, flowers, etc.

A cremation with a viewing beforehand can be facilitated for those families that wish to have an opportunity to say a final goodbye but do not wish to have a formal service. Again rental caskets, or slumber beds, can make this a fairly inexpensive option.

What is the difference between a cremation funeral and a cremation memorial service?

direct-cremationA cremation memorial service is where the cremation is conducted before a memorial service is held. Your funeral home can provide the memorial ceremony as part of their services but will charge you for this. The price for a cremation memorial service in Louisville is likely to be in the region of $2,500 to $3,500.

A cremation memorial service (being that the deceased is already cremated) can be more flexible. It does not have to be held immediately, as the body is not present, and it offers the opportunity for unique personalization.

A memorial service does not have to be conducted by, or at, a funeral home. A ceremony in memory of the deceased or an ash-scattering ceremony can be held anywhere and led by family members and friends, a funeral celebrant, or clergy.

Arranging to have a cremation performed and then conducting the memorial service yourself can be a significant way to save on overall funeral costs. It can also make for a much more personal tribute to a lost loved one. Visit our section on ‘Memorialization Options’ to read more about how you can create your memorial tributes.

How to arrange a cremation for $750 in Louisville

A direct cremation is the least expensive cremation option that a cremation services provider offers. It is a simple, basic cremation without any services or ceremony. Many funeral homes do not actively promote that they offer such a basic service because, of course, they want you to spend more! They even include it in their general price list (GPL) at the very bottom!

Direct cremation includes everything to take care of the deceased and have the body cremated [but may not include county fees such as death certificate and cremation permit]. A death certificate in Louisville costs $6.00 each.

Affordable cremation services in Bloomington, Indiana

Cremation is increasing in popularity in Indiana.  It offers an efficient and inexpensive funeral alternative.  The interest in cremation has prompted families to seek out information on cremation in their area, especially to find out about cremation costs and cremation procedures. This article can hopefully answer some of your questions about cremation services in Bloomington.

What types of cremation services are available?

Just as with a funeral service, there is a range of options for arranging a cremation service. You can opt for a simple cremation or a full traditional funeral followed by a cremation.

Cremation offers families greater flexibility as a cremation can be conducted following death, and then the funeral service can be arranged at a later date more suitable to the family.  Cremated remains can also be simply transported to another location for interment should this be required.

A basic cremation generally does NOT include any services or ceremony, a cremation funeral service is where the deceased is present during the service, and a cremation follows, and a cremation memorial service is where the ceremony is held after the cremation, with or without the cremated remains present.

How much does a cremation service cost in Bloomington?

The price of a cremation will vary between funeral homes in Bloomington.  The NFDA* surveyed the average funeral cost at $7,848 in 2021, which does not include any cemetery costs.  In contrast, the average cost of a cremation is $2,250, according to the Cremation Association of North America.

Cremation service costs in Bloomington start at $850 for a basic, simple cremation but can range to $3,500 for a cremation with a service.

Who can authorize a cremation?

The legal next of kin is required to authorize a cremation, and cremation cannot proceed without this signature.   In Indiana, it is now law (2009) that you can authorize your own cremation ahead of time by filling in an Indiana Designated Agent funeral planning form.  This can save the important decision having to be made by next of kin when the time comes, prevents any dispute between family members, and ensures your wishes are met.  Once the cremation authorization form is signed and complete, the funeral director can obtain a permit to cremate.

bloomington-cremation-servicesHow do I know that I am getting back the remains of my loved one?

Many families ask this very valid question when first considering cremation.  There are very strict protocols that govern how cremation is conducted by a funeral home or crematory, and all cremation operatives are accordingly trained.  Human remains MUST be cremated individually, and the chamber (cremation retort) cleared completely before the next cremation.

An ID tagging process is employed, and checks are made each step of the way.  This ensures that the cremated remains you receive back are those of your loved one and nothing more!

Who offers the best cremation prices in Bloomington?

Our DFS Memorials provider offers the best cremation service price in Bloomington.  We would challenge you to find a direct cremation for less!  As a full-service funeral home, our provider can assist you with cremation memorial services – all available at the best prices.

Cremation and personalization

Cremation offers families a wonderful opportunity in how we can personalize and memorialize our lost loved ones.  Of course, cremated remains can be kept close for those that would prefer to have their loved one nearby – whether in a keepsake urn, a cremation diamond, or other cremation artifacts – or the possibilities for ash scattering are almost limitless.

Read this article on Ash Scattering for more information on what options are available and sensible guidelines for how to scatter.

Cremation niches or columbariums are now available in most cemeteries.  These offer a small interment site, generally above ground, where a cremation urn can be interred.  Many cemeteries will also facilitate the opening and closing of an existing family plot to inter a cremation urn if required.  There are fees for this, though.  Cremation niches can cost anywhere between $500 and $5,000, so as with funeral costs, it is imperative to shop around and compare costs.

The deceased had no life insurance – is there any help with cremation costs?

Sadly, there is little financial aid that supports families struggling with funeral costs.  Most counties have a budget for indigent funerals, but this is generally for those who truly are indigent.  Some counties do have limited funds to help low-income families with cremation costs, but this can vary county by county.  Often, the most basic funeral services will be supported in these cases, with limited control over what happens.

Direct cremation in Orlando

A direct cremation proves the cheapest way to conduct a cremation disposition.  It is otherwise known as an immediate cremation or sometimes referred to as a basic or simple cremation.  It just means that the funeral home handles the cremation-servicescremation without providing any ceremony or other services.

Average cremation costs and funeral costs in Southeast Florida

Today’s funeral consumers are much savvier about funeral costs. This is in part due to the fact that the economic downturn has forced many families to seek out more affordable death care alternatives, and also because we are more discerning consumers and prepared to shop around and compare prices…even for a funeral.

A direct cremation is the least expensive and ‘no-fuss’ cremation option and can be conducted for $795 complete (including one copy of the death certificate).

How can I save on funeral and cremation costs in Southeast Florida?

You can save money on the cost of a funeral by reducing the level of ancillary services. A casket is one of the large purchases associated with arranging a funeral. No law states you must purchase a casket, although many cemeteries will require you to use an outer burial container or burial vault. Y

ou can purchase a casket from a third-party casket seller (sometimes cheaper than purchasing a casket from a funeral home), or you can make your own coffin. There is also no legal requirement in Florida that the deceased be embalmed if the burial takes place within several days. Refrigeration is an adequate preservative and can be much less expensive than embalming.

Another significant way to save on the cost of a funeral is to consider cremation as an alternative. Cremation eliminates the need for a casket, embalming, burial vault, and cemetery plot. This alone can save thousands of dollars.

cremacion-miamiA direct disposer can ONLY perform a direct disposition and cannot offer many of the services that a fully licensed funeral home can. No viewing, services, or ceremony can be conducted by the direct disposer.

This means that a direct disposer can often offer competitive direct cremation prices. However, it is not uncommon for a direct disposer to offer budget cremation prices that are NOT inclusive and charge additional fees for such things as a residential collection. It is wise to always fully check exactly what is included in any direct cremation package, particularly to look for any hidden fees!

What help is available for cremation costs in SE Florida?

A cremation can also offer a more flexible alternative that can accommodate families who have moved from their home state, or when a funeral cannot be held straight away.  For residents and retirees in Florida who are transplants, cremation can be a preferred option for those whose families are from out-of-state.

Cremation also offers a greater range of personalization options with a whole array of ash-scattering ceremony possibilities, and various cremation artifact products.

What different cremation alternatives do I have?

There are 3 main types of cremation service options:

A cremation funeral – where the funeral service is held with the deceased present and a cremation is conducted after the service.

A cremation memorial – where the cremation is conducted before a memorial service is held.  This can be with, or without, the cremated remains present and can often take the form of an ash scattering ceremony.

A direct cremation – this is where the deceased is cremated with no services, and the remains are given back to the family.  There are some variances around these 3 main options, such as a private viewing before the cremation, an observed cremation, or a graveside interment of a cremation urn.

Direct cremation services in West Palm Beach, FL

How do I choose a cremation services provider?

This can sometimes be a daunting task when there are several funeral homes to choose between.  It may help to set yourself some clear criteria to help you select the provider that best suits your needs.  Which funeral services provider you select can be influenced by what facilities and services they offer, or what budget you have.

As we have highlighted, costs can vary quite significantly between funeral homes for the exact same service.  For this reason, we would recommend you compare some costs before making a decision.

Comparing cremation costs in West Palm Beach, FL

All funeral homes have a general price list (GPL) and this should itemize all services and charges.  Legally a funeral home must provide you with a copy of their GPL if you request cremation price information, either in person or by phone.

According to funeral price research surveys in West Palm Beach, the average cost of a direct cremation is $1,753, although a direct cremation can be arranged for less than this with some cremation providers.  DFS Memorials offer a direct cremation service for $795.

When comparing costs and services check what IS included, especially with a budget direct cremation package.  Is a copy of the death certificate included?  Is the cremation permit an additional cash advance item or included?  What about if an out-of-hours collection is required? Is there an additional daily refrigeration charge if the cremation does not proceed after 48-hours?  Death certificates cost $20.00 each. One copy IS included with the $795 direct cremation service package, and additional copies can be requested for the additional fee of $20.00 per copy.

What legally do I need to know about arranging a cremation in West Palm Beach?

There are a few legal requirements that you need to be aware of if you are considering cremation.

Firstly, the legal next-of-kin must all sign the ‘Cremation Authorization Form’ before a cremation can proceed.

In Florida, there is a mandatory 48-hour wait period after death before the cremation can proceed. Before a cremation can go ahead the doctor must sign and fill out the cause of death, and the county health department must issue a permit to cremate.  The deceased will be refrigerated during this period, and longer if required, however, you should be aware that many cremation packages will only include refrigeration for up to 5 days and will charge you a daily rate thereon.

Can I preplan a cremation?

Yes, you can prearrange a cremation.  Advance planning can help to ensure you get the most appropriate services provider for your needs and can save the surviving family the financial and emotional burden at the time of death.  There are various options open to you to plan ahead so consult with your preferred services provider.  A pre-arranged direct cremation plan can be preplanned at a low cost to ensure your family does not have the burden of worrying about funeral costs.

direct cremation west palm beach flWhat can we do with the cremated remains?

As I mentioned earlier there is versatility in what you can do with cremated remains.

You can inter a cremation urn in a cemetery plot or niche, keep an urn at home, scatter the remains or create a cremation artifact such as a cremation diamond, glass paperweight, bird bath, or memorial reef ball to name but a few!

The deceased had no life insurance – is there any help with cremation costs?

Sadly there is little financial aid that supports those families that find themselves struggling with funeral costs.  Most counties do have a budget for indigent funerals but this is generally for those individuals who truly are indigent.  Some counties do have limited funds to help low-income families with cremation costs but this can vary county by county.  You would need to make inquiries with St Lucie County Human Services Department at 437 North 7th Street Ft. Pierce, FL 34950

to find out if any assistance is available to you.  In these cases often the most basic of funeral services will be supported, with limited control over what happens.  A low-cost direct cremation from DFS Memorials can be arranged for $795 complete (no hidden extras).

What is “no-cost cremation”?

Some funeral homes now offer this option in West Palm Beach.  This is referring to whole body donation whereby after the donation is complete the remains are cremated (free of charge) and then returned to the family or scattered.   Generally, funeral homes can get a referral fee from the whole body donation organization, plus they sometimes charge a transportation fee.  So all-in-all they do still recoup their costs.  As we all know, there really is nothing that is truly free!

How do I obtain a copy of a death certificate?

You can obtain copies of a death certificate from the Vital Records office at 5150 NW Milner Drive, Port St. Lucie, FL 34983  Phone: (772) 873-4932

What happens if the deceased is taken to the Coroner’s Office?

If there were circumstances surrounding the death that led to the deceased being taken to the County Coroner’s office, you will need to employ the services of a funeral director as soon as possible to liaise with the Coroner to have the body released into their care.  Only a licensed funeral director can collect a body from the Coroner’s morgue.

A direct cremation service can be conducted for as little as $795 complete (including one copy of the death certificate) in Pembroke Pines.

How funeral care is changing and the economic reasons for choosing cremation

Deciding whether to bury or cremate is a personal choice.  For some families, the decision is dictated by the budget they have for a funeral, and a cremation service will cost less than a traditional burial funeral.  On average, a cremation service is going to save you at least 40% on the cost of a burial, sometimes, you can save as much as 60% on the cost of a burial service.

More families are choosing cremation as it does offer greater flexibility. The funeral service does not have to go ahead immediately.  Instead, a cremation can be performed, and the immediate disposition of the body dealt with, and then a service held at a later date convenient to the family.

The economy has definitely impacted on how we are changing our approach to death care today.  Many families simply cannot, or do not, want to spend unnecessarily on funeral costs.  A cremation provides a simple, efficient, and economical means to conduct a disposition.

How much does a funeral cost in Pembroke Pines?

This is not a simple question to answer as funeral costs can range significantly depending on the type of services and products selected and the funeral services provider used.  The average cost of a funeral in Pembroke Pines is $5,792*.

How much does a cremation cost in Pembroke Pines?

Firstly, a cremation WILL save you on funeral costs.  There is no requirement for a casket, cemetery plot, or burial vault, which alone saves thousands of dollars.  Generally, embalming is not required when a cremation is performed, so all-in-all, you can save on many funeral expenses, meaning that a cremation will cost at least half, if not less, than the full cost of a burial funeral.

It is important to state that cremation prices in Pembroke Pines vary considerably between funeral homes and depending on what type of cremation service you opt for.  Not all funeral homes have their own crematory but will use the services of a local crematory.  The average cost of a cremation memorial is $2,645*.  However, it is possible to find much lower-priced cremation services in Pembroke Pines.

Cremation questionsHow much is a direct cremation in Pembroke Pines, FL?

A basic cremation can be conducted in Pembroke Pines for as little as $795 complete.  This is what is known as a direct cremation”.  No services are performed, the deceased is collected, transported to the funeral facility, prepared for cremation, and the cremation is conducted.  The cremated remains are returned to the family in a temporary plastic urn.  If desired, the family can arrange a brief final goodbye viewing at the funeral home.

Call DFS Memorials now on (954) 281-7747 to arrange a low-cost cremation for $795

What type of cremation services are available?

You can select from a range of cremation services and packages.  These will start with a basic cremation without any additional services, which is the cheapest type of cremation package.  You can have a full-service funeral that is followed by the cremation, a cremation followed by a memorial service, or just a viewing followed by a cremation.  Cremation does offer versatility in what options you have and when and where any services can be held.

How to compare cremation costs in Pembroke Pines, FL

As mentioned, the cost of a cremation can vary enormously – for the exact same service – but from different cremation service providers.   Ensure that you compare like-for-like services.  Some cremation service providers include crematory fees and cremation container costs in a direct cremation package, and others do not always include these fees.  Death certificate fees and cremation permits are often additional ‘cash advance’ items.

How do I know that the cremated remains I get back are my loved one’s remains?

This is probably the most common cremation question we are asked.  Strict laws govern the cremation of human remains, and identity checks have to be made along the way.

The cremation retort has to be completely cleared following a cremation, and only one cremation can be performed at a time.  The remains are cleared into a machine that filters out any metal parts (tooth fillings, hip replacements, etc) and then ground into the fine ‘dust’ that is returned as cremation ashes.

Understanding the legal requirements for cremation in Pembroke Pines

As mentioned above, there are laws in place regarding the cremation of human remains.  A cremation cannot be performed until a cremation permit is issued by the medical examiner’s office.  The legal next of kin must sign a Cremation Authorization Form.  A mandatory wait period is 48 hours after death in Florida before the cremation can proceed.

It is unnecessary to embalm a body for cremation, and refrigerated storage is used to preserve the body until it is performed.  The funeral home will generally store the body for up to 5 days in refrigerated storage at no extra charge.  If the cremation does not go ahead within 5 days, an additional fee for storage may be incurred.

What can we do with the cremated remains?

Cremation offers greater flexibility in what you can do with the cremated remains once you have returned.  You can, of course, inter them in a grave plot or niche.  However, you can choose to store them in an urn at home or scatter the cremated remains.  There are also options such as having cremation artifacts made from cremated remains such as cremation diamonds, glass jewelry, bird baths, and paintings.

Preplanning an affordable cremation service

You can lock in a low-cost cremation price if you wish to preplan a simple cremation.  This may depend upon your age at the time of setting up a prepaid cremation plan.  A cremation plan can be set up using an insurance policy where the funds are put into a trust.  You can also opt to preplan your cremation service without prepaying.

This ensures that your surviving family can proceed with arrangements at the time of need without having to worry about completing the paperwork or making difficult decisions.  The money to pay for the cremation can be put aside in a POD account (Payable on Death) which your beneficiary can draw out upon death immediately without probate.

The deceased had no life insurance – is there any help with cremation costs?

It is sadly a reality that more folks are passing without leaving the means to pay for their funeral.  If you are faced with this situation, you need to explore what help may be available to you.  Social Security pays out a $255 lump sum death benefit (if you qualify), and your funeral director can assist you with this.

The support for indigent burials differs so much by state and county. Some counties do offer some financial assistance to low-income families, whereas in other counties, only county indigent dispositions are conducted.  To find out what may be available, you should contact Broward County Human Services Department at:

115 S Andrews Ave, Fort Lauderdale, FL 33301  Phone:  954-357-6385

The deceased is at the Medical Examiner’s Office.  What do I do?

If the deceased was the victim of a crime, or there were unusual circumstances surrounding the death, the deceased’s body may be taken into the care of the coroner for an examination to determine the cause of death.  You will need to employ the services of a funeral director as soon as possible to coordinate the release of your loved one from the ME’s office.

A deceased person can only be released into the care of a licensed funeral director.  Many funeral homes are familiar with the process of liaising with the ME to have the body released as quickly as possible.  You may also find that a simple, direct cremation can be arranged at a very low cost when the deceased is in the Coroner’s morgue as all the paperwork can be expedited quickly, and the process of transferring the deceased to the funeral facility is simplified.

Address of county coroner’s office: 5301 SW 31st Ave, Fort Lauderdale, FL 33312
