Cremation is becoming an increasingly popular choice for disposition in the Virginia Beach area. The cost of a cremation is significantly less than the cost of a traditional burial, and with the tough economic times, opting for cremation can save families thousands of dollars and make death care more affordable.
The average cost of a simple cremation in Virginia Beach is around $3,000, however, a simple, direct cremation can be performed for as little as $1,650. A direct cremation just means that a cremation is conducted without any service, and the cremated remains returned directly to the family. Of course, a memorial service can be held with the cremated remains at a later date.

What different cremation alternatives do I have in Virginia Beach?
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 given back to the family. There are some variances around these 3 main options, such as a private viewing before cremation, an observed cremation, or a graveside interment of a cremation urn.
