How Much Does Cremation Cost?
Cremation can cost anywhere from a couple of thousand dollars up to several thousand but will vary from funeral director to funeral director. The cost will also differ depending on whether you choose a direct cremation or want to have a full service.
Much of the cost of burial comes from the burial plot, as there is often limited space available, and many cemeteries require ongoing payments. If you're choosing a burial funeral for religious reasons this can also affect the funeral cost.
