The anguish that comes with losing a family member sometimes extends to the economic impact of the cremation cost. Many funeral home charges depend on such things as the prevailing market, the deceased’s location and accessibility. In addition, overhead fees are often tacked on the final bill.
That leads to the obvious question: how much does cremation cost? Unfortunately, for those funeral homes, such costs tend to be determined by with what’s good for the business and not their clients. Generally, we base those flexible overhead costs on the average volume of their company, a practice which unfairly charges those with more modest needs.
Getting the Most Value
Such overhead concerns don’t exist at Lone Star Cremation. That’s because their philosophy is based on making sure the client isn’t forced to purchase unnecessary services or pay for facilities they don’t use.
While the price is reduced, the client needn’t worry about receiving less service as a result. The price at Lone Star Cremation can stay low because we focus on this singular aspect of the business in both the Dallas-Fort Worth and Waco areas.
So without the annoying aspect of overhead costs clouding the final bill, the question is again asked: how much does cremation cost? Lone Star Cremation has three different cremation packages available: bronze, silver and gold, with all of them offering different levels of comfort.
The bronze is their basic package for $755, and is there for those who prize simplicity. It offers a cremation, with slight fees for shipping the ashes and mailing the death certificate, though arrangement can only be made online
The $995 silver package is Lone Star Cremation’s most popular package. All of the above items are included, with the fees and the cost of submitting an obituary waived. The cremation itself can be expedited, you’re eligible for a 15 percent urn discount and for just $225, can witness the cremation. You can also make arrangements in-person or online.
Not surprisingly, the $1,595 gold package offers the best opportunity, with everything in the silver included. In addition, you have the option of prepaying for the cremation and paying between $200-$1,595 to rent the chapel and receive concierge and military assistance.
