My Review of the 10″ Classic Cremation Urn.
How to Find A Great Deal On a Quality Cremation Urn
I recently collected some price surveys from a couple local funeral homes in the mid-Michigan area and discovered that cremation has become more and more the norm. With the economy the way it is, it is no wonder. I know that planning in advance can save you a lot of money down the road.
The cost of a cremation can cost you anywhere from $700.00 to $2,000.00. There are several things that effect this cost. Direct cremations are the least expensive. In direct cremation you can have the body cremated.
If you wish to have a service that includes a viewing before cremation, it is possible but be careful as the price of a casket for viewing can be costly. The service can also cost more with having a viewing. Some people want to have a viewing so friends and family can see the deceased during this grieving period.
Once the cremation is done some people will have the ashes put into an urn that you purchase. You would have the service with the urn after the cremation.

In a traditional burial, there are more costs which can be very expensive. This will vary greatly with the type of casket used, embalming, head stone, services, and the type of burial. This type of burial can cost from $3,000.00 to as much as $15,000.00.
The casket price list at most funeral homes will start at least $1300 and can range into the $15,000 dollar range.
