Funeral Costs

No matter what kind of funeral you’re considering, there’s no ignoring the funeral costs associated. There are hundreds of factors that can affect the cost of a funeral, from family traditions, cultural requirements, the requests of the deceased, funeral home fees and more. If you’re concerned about funeral costs or looking to make the most of the money you have available, Kingston Funerals can guide you through the planning process and ensure you can plan out the ideal funeral or memorial service. Our funeral directors will help you honour your loved ones in the way they would have wanted, while managing funeral expenses.

How is the funeral cost determined?

There are a lot of things that go into running a funeral. Each of these things has costs associated and will cost more or less depending on the options you choose for each. With the addition of fees such as cemetery fees, funeral service fees, transportation costs, catering and other optional funeral costs, it’s not hard to understand where the final price comes from. If you’re looking for a basic burial funeral, many of these costs can be disregarded. However, if you’re considering a more elaborate burial or funeral, things can become quite costly.

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.
