There are so many cremation service options and providers to choose from that it can be very overwhelming. At DFS Memorials we only work with licensed, reputable local cremation providers, and we specifically select a provider who can offer affordability and quality service.
How much does a cremation cost in Fort Lauderdale?
This is the million-dollar question. As cremation is so popular in Florida, and the Miami-Ft. Lauderdale area is such a built-up area with a huge population, the cremation market is very competitive.
Cremation costs can vary quite significantly though, depending upon the type of cremation service you select, and the service provider. The Cremation Association of North America quotes the average cost of cremation at $3,200, although it is easy to arrange a cremation for much less. Cremation prices in Ft, Lauderdale can range between $795 and $2,200.
What is a direct cremation?
A direct cremation is the simplest (and most economical) cremation option. It is a cremation without any services or ceremony. The deceased is collected from the place of death, transferred to the funeral location, and prepared for cremation. All the necessary paperwork is completed, and the cremation is conducted. The cremated remains are returned directly to the family in a temporary cremation urn.
Can I still have a service with a direct cremation in Fort Lauderdale?
Yes, of course! You can add services to a direct cremation if you wish. So you could opt to add a viewing or a private family ID. Many families choose to conduct memorial services once they have the cremated remains returned from the crematory. You can use the services of a life celebrant or your minister to deliver memorial services, or (as more families are choosing) opt to arrange your own services. This obviously can save you a lot of money off the full cost of a funeral service in Fort Lauderdale.
