Questions People Frequently Ask Us

What is the difference between cremation and direct cremation?
Direct cremation is the most cost-effective cremation service available, and also the most cost-effective funeral option. It is an industry term that refers to the purchase of the cremation itself, without any unnecessary additions. Regular cremation packages may add expensive “cremation caskets” for your loved one to be cremated in, or other extras you don’t want or need. If you are looking for a simple, affordable funeral option, always ask about a funeral establishment’s direct cremation package. They will cremate your loved one more affordably and simply return their cremated remains to you once completed.
How Much Do Cremations and Burials Cost in Northern California?
The cost of funeral services varies from funeral home to funeral home. Funerals, especially burial options, can be expensive and overwhelming to plan if you are unfamiliar with the costs. Traditional burial services can cost anywhere from $4,000 to $20,000 depending on the provider you choose and the package options available to you. If you are interested in burial services, look for a trusted local provider that is conscious of your budget and will accommodate yourneeds. Be wary of burial providers who try to add on unwanted extras that drive up the burial price.When considering between burial or cremation, many families consider the cost difference. When it comes to funeral options, cremations are typically much more affordable than burial services. Cremation can cost anything from $600 to $5,000 depending on the provider you choose. Traditional funeral homes are generally more expensive, even if you choose a direct cremation option. If you are cost-conscious, make sure to shop around and compare services different funeral providers offer to ensure you are getting the best price for your funeral.
What is the cheapest way to cremate a body?
Direct cremation is the most affordable funeral option available. Traditional cremation services have many add ons that increase the price, so you end up paying far more for your loved one’s funeral. Direct cremation packages only include the cost of the cremation itself, and no unwanted extras, drastically reducing the price of the funeral.
