Direct cremation services in Boynton Beach, FL

Direct cremation is the industry term for a ‘simple cremation’.  The funeral home provides only the cremation service.  No ceremony or funeral services are provided by the funeral home.  The deceased is collected and cremated, and the remains are returned to the family in a basic urn.

Direct cremation offers families lower-cost funeral services and more control over the time and type of memorial ceremonial services they desire.  A memorial service can be held in a place of worship, a community venue, or even outdoors.  The service can be conducted with or without the cremation urn present and can even take the form of an ash-scattering ceremony or interment in a cremation niche or scattering garden.

A basic direct cremation is available in Boynton Beach for $995, although the average price for a direct cremation is $1,685.   To help families arrange affordable cremation services in Florida, we have selected only licensed cremation service providers who can offer a basic cremation package for under $1,000.Direct Cremation costs in Boynton Beach

Call now at (561) 486-2466 now to arrange a low-cost cremation.

Are there any additional fees to the $995 cremation package?

In order for a cremation to be conducted, a ‘disposition permit’ must be issued by the county.  At present, there is no charge for this.  One death certificate is included in the direct cremation service package, and additional copies can be purchased for $20.00 each.

If the deceased weighed over 200 pounds, had a pacemaker, or requires a residential collection, there may be additional charges.

How do I know that I am getting the remains of my loved one back?

This is one of the most frequent questions families ask about cremation.  Strict laws govern the cremation of human remains, and identity checks must be made all along the way.  The cremation retort must 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) and then ground into the fine ‘dust’ that is returned as cremation ashes.

Read our Complete Guide to Cremation to learn more. It explains every step, from the deceased being collected by the funeral home or crematory to the family receiving the cremated remains.

What if I am not sure about cremation or the family cannot agree about cremation?

Cremation is such a final disposition. You do need to ensure that you are completely sure that this IS the ‘right’ disposition choice for you.  Certain laws are in place to ensure this final disposition can only proceed if the legal next of kin has authorized it.

A Cremation Authorization Form must be signed by the legal next of kin, and in the case of children, many funeral directors will require all children to sign.

You can authorize an agent for your final disposition or sign the authorization when you preplan a cremation.

Affordable Cremation Plan Boynton BeachWhat can you do with the cremated remains?

The options of what you can do with the cremated remains of your loved one are one of the reasons cremation is becoming more popular.  You can, of course, just choose to inter the remains in a cemetery plot.

You can inter the remains in a niche or columbarium, or you can keep the ashes at home.  Keepsake urns even enable you to disperse the ashes between several family members or choose to scatter some and retain a ‘keepsake’ memorial.

Ash scattering is also more common these days, and there are many options for how you can create a befitting ash scattering ceremony.

You can preplan a simple direct cremation service.  This is generally funded through an insurance product that will cover this cost when the need arises.  All monies are secured in a trust fund.

How quickly can a cremation be performed?

It generally takes a few days to make the necessary arrangements, complete all the legal paperwork and schedule the cremation.  However, expedited services can be arranged if required.  In Florida, there is a mandatory 24-hour wait period after death before a cremation can be conducted.

What do I do if I cannot even afford a cremation?

There is very little ‘free’ money to help families with funeral costs.   What is available constantly changes due to budget constraints and varies by county.  Some counties do have a provision to assist needy or low-income families.  Contact Palm Beach county DFCS to find out what may be available to you locally.

Palm Beach County DFCS, 810 Datura St, West Palm Beach, FL 33401

There is also a $255 lump-sum social security death benefit payment if the deceased qualifies, and your funeral director can help you claim this.  So you may find that a low-cost cremation with DFS Memorials is a dignified yet affordable disposition alternative if your family is struggling financially.

Affordable cremation services in Deerfield Beach, FL – $995

Do you need an affordable direct cremation service? Funerals need not be as expensive as many of us have been led to believe.

The National Funeral Directors Association (NFDA) surveyed the average cost of a funeral at $7,848 in 2022, and this is without any cemetery fees included.

Adding in a cemetery plot fee brings the average cost to around $10,000.

For many families today, spending close to $10,000 on funeral expenses is not always affordable.

Therefore, if you need to arrange a more affordable cremation service in Deerfield Beach, this guide should help you understand how to save on your funeral expenses.

How much can I expect to pay for a funeral service in Deerfield Beach?

The cost of a funeral can vary quite significantly.  This will depend upon the type of funeral service you opt for and the funeral service provider you select.  If you do any research with local funeral homes, you will discover that the price for a funeral package will vary from different providers, even for the exact same services!

Funeral Planning Deerfield Beach FLHow do I select a funeral services provider?

If you have no prior experience with a funeral services provider, this can seem an overwhelming task. Consult with friends and associates and seek recommendations.

Funeral and cremation prices can vary significantly for the exact same service but from different funeral homes.

How can I save money when arranging a funeral or cremation?

Saving on funeral costsThese days many of us are concerned about having the necessary funds to conduct funeral services for a loved one if no provision was made.

Let’s face it…not many folks can just produce thousands of dollars at the drop of a hat!

There are ways that you can ensure you keep your funeral expenses to a minimum.

Generally, a cremation will work out less expensive than a burial, namely as no immediate cemetery fees are required for cremation.  However, a dignified burial can be achieved at a very affordable cost.

Opting for cremation means that there is no need for a casket, burial vault, or cemetery plot.  And eliminating these costs alone can save you several thousand dollars.

Comparing cremation prices in Deerfield Beach

We conducted a pricing survey for basic direct cremation services from a select number of affordable cremation service providers in the area to enable us to find the best value direct cremation service provider for DFS Memorials.

The cost of a direct cremation in Deerfield Beach ranges from $995 to $2,340.  The Neptune Society charges $1,982 for a direct cremation package.

What is ‘direct cremation’?

A direct cremation is where the deceased is cremated, but no services or ceremony is held.  The funeral director offers minimal services to collect the deceased, prepare the body for cremation, and process all the required paperwork.  The deceased is cremated in a simple cremation container, and the remains are made available for the family to collect or have delivered to them.  No funeral home visit is required for a direct cremation service.  In many cases, the funeral director will visit you at home to sign the paperwork and consult with you about arrangements.

Direct cremation is becoming very popular as a way in which the funeral home can assist in the immediate disposition of the deceased for an affordable fee but leaves the family with the opportunity to conduct their own memorial ceremony once they have the cremated remains back.

Read our Complete Guide to Cremation Services to learn more about cremation services, costs, and laws governing a cremation disposition.

How do I know I am getting the remains of my loved one back?

This is one question that a lot of families ask.  There are strict laws governing how human cremation is conducted.

Operatives are trained in the processes, and only one body can be cremated in a retort at any one time.

The retort chamber is then fully cleared before another cremation proceeds.  A body is tagged the minute it is logged into the funeral home or crematory, and ID checks are done at each step of the process.

What can I do with the cremated remains?

You can inter cremated remains into a grave plot or niche at a cemetery, keep a cremation urn at home, or scatter the remains in a place of your choosing.  Today there are many options for how we can memorialize a lost loved one, and there is now a range of cremation artifacts that can be created to help us immortalize the memory of a loved one, from bird baths made with concrete infused with cremation ashes to memorial diamonds!  Other folks are choosing to scatter ashes in a memorable place for a loved one’s last resting place.

Read this section on Ash Scattering for more ideas.

What if the deceased is at the Medical Examiner?

If the deceased is at the Medical Examiner’s office, you need to appoint a funeral director to arrange the release of the body into their care.  Only a licensed funeral director can collect a body from the county morgue.

What if the deceased had no life insurance?

More often these days, family members are passing, and we find out that they had no life insurance or funeral plan.  This can mean surviving families are burdened with a funeral bill that they cannot afford to pay.

There is very little financial support to assist families in this situation, and it varies significantly by state and county.  We would suggest you contact Broward County Assistance Program at:

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

There is also a $255 lump-sum social security death benefit payment for those that qualify.  Your funeral director will assist you in claiming this.

Arrange a simple, direct cremation in Pompano Beach, FL

Are you looking for a simple and affordable cremation option in Pompano Beach?  Did you know you can arrange a direct cremation for $995 complete?

This is a simple and inexpensive way to conduct a funeral if you have limited resources or simply prefer a direct cremation at a value cost.

Why spend more?

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, an affordable 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 how we are arranging funerals 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.

Visit our Complete Guide to Cremation to learn all about cremation, the process, the costs, service options, and laws governing a cremation disposition.

This article also provides a breakdown of Cremation Costs in Florida.

How much does a funeral cost in Pompano Beach?

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 Pompano Beach is $5,862*.

Funeral Planning pompano beachHow much does a cremation cost in Pompano Beach?

Firstly, a cremation WILL save you on funeral costs.  There is no requirement for a casket, cemetery plot, or burial vault. Eliminating these costs 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 Pompano Beach, DO vary quite considerably between funeral homes, 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 $3,677*. However, it is possible to find much lower-priced cremation services in Pompano Beach.

How much is a direct cremation in Pompano Beach?

A basic cremation can be conducted in Pompano Beach for as little as $995 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.

Call DFS Memorials now at (954) 932-3363 to arrange a low-cost cremation for $995 

What type of cremation services are available?

You can select from a range of cremation services and packages.  These will start with a basic direct 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 Pompano Beach, 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 cremation 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 ones remains?

This is probably the most common cremation question we are asked.  Strict laws govern the cremation of human remains, and identity checks must 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 Pompano Beach

There are laws in place regarding the cremation of human remains.  A cremation cannot be performed until the medical examiner’s office issues a cremation permit.  The legal next of kin must sign a Cremation Authorization Form.  There is a mandatory wait period of 24 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 the cremation 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 some greater flexibility in what you can do with the cremated remains once you have them 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

If you wish to preplan a simple cremation, you can lock in a low-cost cremation price.  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

direct cremation pompano beachThe 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 to transfer the deceased to the funeral facility is simplified.

Direct cremation offers families lower-cost funeral services and more control over the time and type of memorial ceremonial services they desire.  A memorial service can be held in a place of worship, a community venue, or even outdoors.  The service can be conducted with or without the cremation urn present. It can even take the form of an ash-scattering ceremony or interment in a cremation niche or scattering garden.

A basic direct cremation is available in Port St Lucie for $1,095, although the average price for a direct cremation can be far higher.  To help families arrange affordable cremation services, we have selected a licensed direct disposal establishment that can offer a basic cremation package for just $1,095.

Are there any additional fees added to the cremation package?

For a cremation to be conducted, the county must issue a ‘disposition permit’.  At present, there is no charge for this.  Death certificates are an additional cost, as these are issued by the county and are a third-party expense.  Death certificates cost $5 for the first certificate and $4 for each additional copy issued.

If the deceased was overweight (over 250 pounds) or had a pacemaker, you may incur some additional charges.

How do I know that I am getting the remains of my loved one back?

This is one of the most frequent questions families ask about cremation.  Strict laws govern the cremation of human remains, and identity checks must be made all along the way.  The cremation retort must 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) and then ground into the fine ‘dust’ that is returned as cremation ashes.

direct cremation port st lucieWhat if I am unsure about cremation or the family cannot agree?

Cremation is such a final disposition, and you do need to ensure that you are completely sure that this IS the ‘right’ disposition choice for you.

Certain laws are in place to ensure this final disposition can only proceed if the legal next of kin has authorized it.

A Cremation Authorization Form must be signed by the legal next of kin, and in the case of children, many funeral directors will require all children to sign.

You can authorize an agent for your final disposition or sign the authorization when you preplan a cremation.

What can you do with the cremated remains?

The options of what you can do with the cremated remains of your loved one are one of the reasons cremation is becoming more popular.  You can, of course, choose to inter the remains in a cemetery plot. You can inter the remains in a niche or columbarium, or you can keep the ashes at home.  Keepsake urns enable you to disperse the ashes between several family members or scatter some and retain a ‘keepsake’ memorial.

Ash scattering is also more common these days, and there are many options for how you can create a befitting ash scattering ceremony.

Can I preplan a direct cremation at an affordable cost in Port St Lucie?

Yes. You can preplan a simple direct cremation service in Port St Lucie.  This is generally funded through an insurance product that will cover this cost when the need arises.  All monies are secured in a trust fund.

How quickly can a cremation be performed?

It generally takes a few days to make the necessary arrangements, complete all the legal paperwork and schedule the cremation.  However, expedited services can be arranged if required.  In Florida, there is a mandatory 48-hour wait period after death before a cremation can be conducted.

What do I do if I cannot even afford a cremation in Port St Lucie?

There is very little ‘free’ money to help families with funeral costs.   What is available is constantly changing due to budget constraints and varies by county.  Some counties do have a provision to assist needy or low-income families.

Contact St Lucie county DFCS to find out what may be available to you locally.

Selecting Affordable Cremation Services in Kissimmee, FL

Selecting a simple and affordable direct cremation service package in Kissimmee can be the easiest and least expensive way to conduct disposition services at the place of death before transporting remains.

Deciding whether to bury or cremate

Deciding whether to bury or cremate is a personal choice, but for some families, the decision is dictated by the budget they have for a funeral.   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. 

Also, 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.

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 Kissimmee?

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.  Online funeral price surveys suggest that the average cost of a funeral in Kissimmee is $7,295.*

How much does a cremation cost in Kissimmee?

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 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 Kissimmee vary considerably between funeral homes, cremation service providers, and direct disposal establishments, 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 $3,973*. However, it is possible to find much lower-priced cremation services in Kissimmee.

How much is a direct cremation in Kissimmee, FL?

A basic cremation can be conducted in Kissimmee for as little as $1,095 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.

How to compare cremation costs in Kissimmee, 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 ones’ 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 must be completely cleared following a cremation, and only one 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 Florida

As mentioned above, there are laws in place regarding the cremation of human remains. A cremation cannot be performed until the medical examiner’s office issues a cremation permit.  The legal next of kin must sign a Cremation Authorization Form.  A mandatory wait period is 24 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 five 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.

You can also opt to hold an Ash Scattering Memorial Tribute. Visit our Complete Guide to Scattering Cremated Remains to learn more.

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

Sadly, more folks are passing away without leaving the means to pay for their funeral.  If a family member has died and 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.  You should contact Osceola County Human Services Department to find out what may be available.

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. The process of transferring the deceased to the funeral facility is simplified.
