Cremation is on the rise in Schuylkill County, Pa and more families are choosing to cremate their loved ones for various reasons. Below we have provided information regarding our cremation costs and average prices.
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). Speak with one of our funeral professionals to learn more about the cost of our direct cremation services.
One of our specialties is affordable, low-cost direct cremation services. Direct cremation refers to a simple cremation service without any type of ceremony or funeral. Direct cremation is ideal for those who want a simple service and want the most affordable cremation option. Essentially the direct cremation service fee covers the completion of the necessary paperwork, removal of the deceased from the place of death, and the actual cremation of the deceased.
