How can I save money on the cost of the funeral?

The most obvious and understandable question, but one that is not always easy to answer. Like building a house—the possibilities could be almost limitless.


There are certain necessary inclusions and certifications required, some of which have fixed costs, and some of which are variable. A cremation funeral service can be much less in cost than a burial, unless the family already has an existing right of burial at a local cemetery for a grave which has allowed provisions for further interments, in which case only a reopening fee would apply.


A specific answer cannot be given to this question because of the scope of options available. The costs of a funeral are categorised under:

* professional service fees
* Casket choice
* Disbursements, i.e. paid by the funeral director’s on the day of the service on your behalf.

For many of these services, fees can be negotiated and prices may be lowered in certain situations. This is true in the case of casket choice and the elaborateness of your funeral service overall.

Just ask us and we will work with you to deliver what you and your loved one want in line with your finances.
