Cremation is one of the oldest forms of human disposition. Evidence of intentional human cremation dates back at least 17,000 years ago. Throughout history, various cultures such as the Greeks, the Vikings, and the Romans chose cremation as their preferred form of disposition. Cremation is a sacred religious rite within the Hindu religion. Within the United States, cremation has increasingly become more popular. In 2015, cremation replaced traditional burial as the most selected form of disposition. The National Funeral Directors Association, or NFDA estimated that in 2020, more than half of Americans had chosen cremation as their preferred form of disposition. The NFDA believes that in 20 years, more than 80% of Americans will choose cremation.


There are several reasons as to why cremation has become increasingly more popular. The high cost of traditional casket burial, the fact that people are no longer living near immediate family members, and the ongoing pandemic are three of the several reasons to explain the popularity of cremation.


The cost of cremations in the United States typically ranges from $1,000 to $7,000. Depending on location, the services you request, the cremation service, and the provider you choose to work with. The cost for cremation varies widely. Cremation itself is a straightforward process, but a family’s wishes play a major role in determining the final cost. Keep in mind that adding on services such as viewings, a memorial service, and witness cremation will increase the cost of a cremation.


Direct cremation prices will usually include basic services such as a loved one’s transportation to the crematorium, a cremation casket, the cremation process, and the return of a loved one’s ashes in a simple container. Costs for cremation also include filing the necessary paperwork and permits.


The cremation provider one chooses handles all aspects of the process from start to finish. However, with direct cremation, families typically forgo optional add-ons such as embalming, body preparation, viewing and visitation, as well as any graveside services. Since direct cremation is such a simple process, cremation costs are usually much lower than they would be if one chooses to work with a funeral home.
