It is not acceptable to be paying more for services and products than we should be. DFS Memorials understand this and can offer low-cost funeral alternatives to the residents of Albany, Amsterdam. Cohoes and Troy.
What is a direct cremation?
A direct cremation is an affordable ‘no fuss’ funeral alternative. The deceased is collected from the place of death and transported into the funeral home’s care. All paperwork and permits are processed, and then the cremation is conducted. The cremated remains are then returned to the family.
How much does a direct cremation cost in Albany?
The cost of a direct cremation can vary. It varies between funeral service providers, so it is generally wise to shop around some. At DFS, we did price survey research to locate an affordable cremation provider, and in partnership with an independent funeral director in Albany, we bring you a low-cost direct cremation service for just $895.
Are there additional fees?
Yes, third-party fees are charged on top of the $895 as these are fees paid directly to the county. Death certificates are charged at $15.00 each. [Veterans qualify for 3 free copies.]
In New York, a funeral home cannot own and operate a crematory. Therefore, the crematory fee is an additional fee charged by all funeral homes. The crematory fee is usually around $300 (depending on crematory available and location.)
There may also be a small fee for a cremation permit.
