You want to find out what the cost of cremation is in Kelowna. When looking at costs of cremation services it is important to know that cremation is rarely the only service you will require from a funeral home. Therefore we feel that giving the cost of cremation by itself only gives you a limited picture.
On its own, the cost of cremation is relatively low and very affordable. But there are other factors that will contribute to the costs of cremation services.
One aspect that contributes to the cost of cremation services is the need for a cremation casket. The costs of cremation caskets very widely. On the low end of the spectrum, a simple cremation casket will cost about a hundred dollars; a fancy cremation casket can cost several thousands.
Another factor to consider when considering costs of cremation services is the cost of the urn that will keep the cremated remains safe. Similar to cremation caskets, the costs of urns vary and affect the final cost of cremation.
Finally, we advise that you think about the memorialization and service options. They are not part of the cost of cremation itself, but are part of the larger funeral service that most people choose to have. The type of service that you choose to have will affect the total cost of cremation services.
We hope that by understanding the different aspects of cremation that make up the funeral service, you now understand why it is challenging to give a precise number for the cost of cremation services.
One of the best ways to guarantee the costs of cremation is to pre-plan your service. When you pre-plan your cremation, it locks in the costs at today’s rates and at the same time allows you to finance the total cost of cremation over a longer period of time.
