What items go into the cost associated with cremation expenses in Schuylkill County?


There really are no standardized cremation costs or prices. Basically, the individual charges which make up the final cost of cremation services include the administrative services of a funeral home professional, transportation of the deceased to the crematory, the alternative or cremation casket selected, and the fees charged by the crematory for the cremation process. There are additional costs, if you decide to hold a funeral, gathering or memorial service.

Much like other purchases which are a combination of charges for services rendered and products which support the completion of those services (such as the purchase of carpeting and under-padding, which are then combined with the cost of installation); the cost of cremation can vary (depending on the products and services selected).
