A Guide to Cremation Pricing from Heritage Cremation Provider
Heritage Cremation Provider wants to make sure that before you make any
decisions during this time of your grief, that we give you all of the
information you need about cremation pricing. We know that everyone wants to lay
to rest their loved one in the most dignified and memorable way possible without
having to consider the cost, but we also understand that people are on budgets
and need to know the cost of a service before they can consider it.
Heritage Cremation Provider is family owned and has been operating for over
two decades. We serve those in our community and truly understand their needs,
desires and expectations when they lose a loved one.
Cremation pricing is less expensive than traditional funeral services held in
funeral homes, even when they include a memorial service after the cremation
process. The reason for the cost of cremation being lower than funeral services
are the many expenses that go into conventional burials and viewings.
Conventional funerals require the expense of embalming, a casket, casket
liner, cemetery plot, and vault, maker for the grave, dressing of the departed
and any extra transportation that may be necessary. Cremation pricing does not
include any of these because they are not necessary when cremation is the choice
for end of life arrangements.
Heritage Cremation Provider believes that all people deserve a blend of
distinguished, quality cremation services and an affordable cremation price
that never sacrifices the dignity of your loved one.
Cremation pricing from Heritage Cremation Provider starts with a direct
cremation package cost of $695 that includes:
- Managing all of the necessary paperwork for the release of the departed
- Transporting the departed to a crematory where the cremation will take place
- The container used in the crematory
- A stringent container for the return of the departed ashes
- Final transportation to the place of the families' choice
- 24 hour/7day service
- Assistance with filing for Veterans Benefits, Social Security, and life
- A professional staff member assigned to guide you through the entire process
- Access to grief counseling
Additional Services that Add to Cremation Pricing
Heritage Cremation Provider not only manages the cremation process but also
arranges, manages and coordinates any service you wish to be performed after the
cremation is over. These services will add to the cremation pricing, but we can
reassure you that the final cost will save you thousands of dollars if you chose
cremation services rather than using a funeral home and having a traditional
- Memorial Services – a memorial will be tailored to your family and your
loved one. Heritage will discuss what you would like to have at the memorial,
where you would like it to be held, whether or not you need catering, and how
long you want it to last. We will look for places that will fit your budget so
you can afford the additional services that will be added to the cremation
pricing. We discuss the options with you, and your family makes the final
decision, we just manage all of the arrangements.
- A viewing of the departed before the cremation process – it is possible to
have a cremation performed after a funeral service with a viewing, we can manage
these accommodations so you are only dealing with one provider but they will add
to the cremation pricing. A casket can be rented for the viewing and embalming
can usually be avoided if the viewing lasts for under one hour.
- The purchase of an urn – many families who live far apart are choosing to
keep their loved ones who have passed on with them in their homes in a
decorative urn. We will show you the different urns that you can purchase, and
make the arrangements for purchasing the urn so it is available if you would
like to have it on display at the memorial service.
Cost is not the only reason many families are looking over cremation pricing
from Heritage Cremation Provider. Many families live a great distance from each
other and cannot attend funeral services when they occur, others do not want to
prolong the sadness associated with a tradition burial, some simply do not want
to be buried, and others are environmentalists who are concerned about the
earth. Whatever the reason for the choice of cremation, Heritage Cremation
Provider offers people from every culture and religious belief the ability to
have an honorable cremation with simplified cremation pricing.
