About Direct Cremation

Tulip has experienced funeral professionals throughout Sarasota County who treat your loved ones with respect and dignity. Once your loved one is in our care, we file all paperwork and permits. Our licensed cremation providers then perform a private, respectful cremation without witnesses. We return your loved one safely and securely through the U.S. Postal Service. 

You pay only for what you need when choosing Tulip Sarasota for immediate or preplanned arrangements. There are no hidden costs or aggressive sales tactics. Many FL families find that direct cremation offers more flexibility in planning a memorial or celebration of life.

The Memorial

Choosing online direct cremation gives your family the freedom to host a memorial or celebration of life for your loved one whenever you are ready. Rather than rushing to plan a memorial service in Sarasota days after their passing, you can take your time exploring your options and plan a celebration that is truly unique and memorable.

If you have family from out of town, you can plan around their schedule, rather than rushing them to make the services following the cremation. Spend as much or as little money as you’d like, without paying a premium to funeral homes that may not offer exactly what you want. We’ve put together these articles to help you consider all the options available to you as you plan your loved one’s personalized memorial service.

Remembering Your Loved One

Choosing Tulip offers many permanent memorialization options. These include a memory garden, columbarium, or a family estate. Sarasota veterans may be entitled to burial benefits. 

Some families select a decorative or personalized urn to keep their loved one’s ashes at home. You may also wish to scatter ashes at sea or another meaningful location. From memorial jewelry to planting a tree, browse Tulip’s online resources and links to find the perfect way to remember your loved one.

Cost of Cremation in Sarasota, FL

Tulip is a respectful and affordable option. It is not unseemly to consider finances for end-of-life decisions. 

The prices of burial and traditional cremation vary, depending on the funeral home and selected options. Traditional burial services cost anywhere from $4,000 to $20,000, depending on the provider and package options. 

Cremation costs range from $600 to $5,000 depending on whether you choose direct cremation services or select traditional cremation through a funeral home. Direct cremation is much less expensive because you pay only for the service you want and need. 

If traditional burial or cremation funeral services interest you, look for a licensed funeral operator who respects your wishes and budget.

Simple, Transparent Pricing

Tulip’s direct cremation services have no hidden costs. We provide local families with simple, transparent cremation arrangements. You may take advantage of payment options that make our cremations even more affordable and accessible.

I found Tulip on the internet. I couldn’t travel to another state where my father had passed, but found Tulip, who took care of everything; from recovering the body from the M.E. To sending me my fathers ashes and his death certificates. I appreciate this service so much and the whole time, they stayed in communication with me. Tulip took a lot off my plate in such a difficult time. Thank you.

I chose Tulip because of a memory we shared involving a ukulele and tulips, but they handled my husband’s cremation with care and sensitivity.

My family's experience with Tulip Cremations was very positive. They provided a quick quote and did not attempt to sale me services and products I did not want or need. Eric of Tulip Cremations was there to assist us through the process. He was kind, courteous, and knowledgeable. I would recommend Tulip Cremations and Eric for cremation services.
