What's the Average Cost of a Funeral?


I would like to know the average cost for a funeral (casket, plot, and all) compared to a cremation service.

It depends!

Individual burial space tends to start around $400-$500 per space. Add to that an opening charge of around $400-$600 per space plus a vault around $1,000. So far, around $2,000.

Those costs are eliminated if cremation takes place after the services, average $3000 plus casket, average. $2000.

An immediate cremation (without visitation) is the least costly way to go, around $1,000.

So,the typical funeral with burial is about $7,000. A typical funeral with cremation, about$5,000. Immediate cremation, $1,000. -- David R. Shirley
