DFS Memorials was
set up to help families find a local funeral home or cremation provider
who could offer them, a simple and affordable alternative to the much more
expensive so-called "traditional funeral", being offered by most
funeral homes today.
The average price
of a funeral in the US today is $7300, according to the National Funeral
Directors Association. Funeral costs have been rising at way above
inflation rates for many years, and people are beginning to question why
funerals seem to be so expensive.
The funeral homes
and cremation providers who are part of the DFS Memorials Network, offer
what is known as a Direct Cremation. A Direct Cremation is by far
the least expensive end-of-life option available. The deceased is
collected by the funeral company from the place of death, all the legal
issues are sorted out with the family, and the body is then taken to a
crematory for cremation. The ashes are then returned to the family.
|More and more families
are choosing this simple cremation option, and then arranging their own
memorial service or end-of-life celebration, at a time and place that is
suitable to them, and without having to pay the funeral company for arranging
these services. Your local place of worship, should have no problems
in providing a small service for your departed loved one, even if you choose
to arrange this yourself.
Some families choose
to keep the ashes at home, others may wish to have them scattered in a
favorite place, like a state park. It really is, and should be, a
personal choice. When we lose a loved one, it certainly does not
need to cost thousands of dollars. To find your nearest DFS Memorials
