Cremation With Viewing and Service

The funeral appears traditional, but the family gathers with friends at the church or funeral home after the service, instead of going to the cemetery. This option is becoming more & more popular. Families will either rent a casket (for a fraction of the cost) or, will buy a cremation casket to be cremated with the body after the service. Cremation caskets run from $195.00 to $1500.00. Most wooden caskets can also be used for this purpose.

This option allows for a minimum savings of $2000.00 because cemetery expenses are avoided (purchase of plot, cemetary opening and closing costs, and outside requirements).
