Cremation costs can vary by provider and what type of cremation you select.  As an example, a direct cremation can be as low as $600 and as high as $3000 depending on where you live and who will perform the cremation.  A full service funeral home will charge more than a discount cremation service who focuses on direct cremation as their specialty. The services provided will be minimal and the price will reflect that.

If a funeral service with a visitation or a memorial service is what you would like, consider working with a traditional funeral home. They have the facilities and staff who are experienced in creating meaningful services for families.

Before you can compare prices, you will need to decide on what type of cremation service you want.
