HOW MUCH DOES CREMATION COST?

 

If an undertaker is used to transport the body, obtain permits, and file the death certificate, the average fee is $1,200 (in 2008). However, prices can vary from about $500 to well over $3,000, often in the same market. If a visitation or a funeral service is held before cremation, the charges will be higher.

 

Many funeral consumer alliances offer mem-bers cremation services provided by funeral or cremation businesses for considerably less than the national average. Families who care for their own dead can use crematories directly at charges from $200 to $400 (2008).
