The cost of cremation services can play a significant part in this decision, as a direct cremation can be arranged in central Florida for just $995 complete. The cremated remains can be transported (if required) to anywhere in the U.S., or overseas, if there is a need to return remains to family outside of Florida.
The DFS Memorials provider for Orlando and Central Florida can be reached on (407) 710-8865.
If you have an immediate, or imminent, need for a simple low cost cremation then we can help you arrange everything for one low price of $995*. Families’ attitudes to funerals are changing and cremation offers families greater flexibility in arranging end of life services. We understand that many families just want a simple, “no fuss” option, one that can be delivered at a low cost.
A direct cremation package can help you arrange a low cost funeral. The direct cremation takes care of the immediate disposition of the deceased, and once the cremated remains are available, a memorial or ash-scattering service can be conducted.
When you can take care of everything for $995*, and are dealing with a family-owned funeral business, why should you pay more than this?
What is included in the $995* Simple Cremation Package?
Our simple cremation service includes:
- Collection of the deceased from the place of death
- Transfer to the funeral facility*
- Shelter of the deceased
- Filing of death certificate and cremation permit
- The cremation process
- Return of the cremated remains in a temporary cremation urn
*an additional mileage fee can apply if outside our basic service area
Are there any extra costs?
The additional fees are county fees, which are subject to change and payable to the county in order to facilitate the cremation proceeding. Death certificate fees in Florida are $10 per copy at present.
Can we still have a funeral service if we arrange a direct cremation in Central Florida?
Yes, of course. You can arrange a memorial service once you have the cremated remains returned. A memorial service is the type of funeral service where the deceased’s body is not present. You can hold a memorial service with, or without, the cremation urn present. A memorial funeral service can also take the shape of an ash scattering ceremony, or a candlelit vigil or tribute. We have some useful resources to help you plan and make your own memorial tributes in our Memorialization section.
Our lowest cost cremation is available throughout the Greater Orlando area and the counties of Flagler, Lake, Orange, Putnam, Seminole, and Volusia
Can I preplan a cremation in Central Florida?
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 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 an affordable cost in Central Florida, ensuring your family do not have the burden of worrying about funeral costs.
What can we do with the cremated remains?
As I mentioned earlier there is a versatility on 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. In these cases often the most basic of funeral services will be supported, with limited control over what happens. An affordable direct cremation from DFS Memorials can be arranged for $995 in Central Florida.
