You want to find out what cremation prices are in Kelowna. When looking at prices of cremation services it is important to recognize that cremation itself is rarely the only service you will need. Therefore we feel that giving the price of cremation alone can be a little misleading.
Cremation is a form of disposition and, on its own, the price of cremation is relatively low – only a few hundred dollars. But there are other factors that will contribute to the price of cremation.
One component that affects the cremation price is the need for a cremation casket. The prices of cremation caskets can vary tremendously – from about a hundred dollars to several thousands.
Another item to consider when looking at cremation prices is the price of the urn that will safely contain the cremated remains. Again, prices of urns vary and affect the total price of cremation.
Finally, it is very important to consider the memorialization and service options. They are not part of the price of cremation itself, but are an important part of the funeral process as a whole. For closure and healing it is important to have some sort of a service and the type of service you choose will affect the end price of cremation.
We hope that by understanding the different components of cremation, and the funeral service as a whole, you see why it is difficult to give a definitive number for the price of cremation service.
The best way to find out an accurate price of cremation is to come in and have a conversation with one of our knowledgeable staff about the type of cremation service you’d like to have. You can also pre-plan your service, which will lock-in the price of cremation at today’s rates and at the same allows you finance the cremation over a longer period of time.
We’d like to leave you with a video that goes into a little more detail of how different factors affect the prices of cremation services:
