A Review Of Cremation Cost Factors

by | Aug 19, 2022 | Funeral Home

There are many reasons why people and families in Hayward choose cremation rather than a traditional burial. For some, it is the reduction in the environmental impact of choosing cremation over burial. For others, the lower cost of cremation is a deciding factor.

No matter what the reasons are for an individual or family to choose the cremation process, there are costs involved. Understanding the different cremation cost options helps families to plan the funeral service and stay within their budget. Unfortunately, this is an emotional time for many of the decision makers in the family and it can be easy to spend more than the family can reasonably afford.

Cremation Package Costs

The lowest cremation cost in Hayward is typically the direct cremation package. There is no visitation, vigil, or viewing, so the body does not need to be embalmed or prepared for display. There is also no need to purchase a casket, which reduces the costs of the funeral by several thousand dollars.

It is possible to have a Funeral Mass or a Memorial Service with the cremains present in the urn and follow this with a committal. The urn can be interred or placed in a mausoleum or columbarium in a consecrated cemetery. The choice of the urn, floral arrangements, and other factors will be additional costs above the basic cremation package.

A cremation with the vigil, visitation, Funeral Mass, and Committal in Hayward is typically more costly. However, it is still affordable for most families. The funeral center may offer different financial programs or options to help offset the cremation cost for lower-income families.
