The funeral industry is the
complete opposite of the corporate model of economies of scale and affordability.
It is a known fact that corporate cremation companies, such as SCI’s Neptune
Society, are more expensive than many Mom & Pop funeral and cremation
companies in Dallas-Fort Worth. It can save you money to find a local
family-owned DFW funeral home that offers simple affordable cremation packages.
1. Make sure you compare cremation
prices between DFW cremation providers
This may seem very obvious considering
how we all compare prices when making consumer purchases these days.
But when it comes to death care, so many people just go to a Dallas funeral
service provider they are recommended to, or know, without thinking about
how price competitive they are. Somehow it seems ‘undignified’ to
be asking the question “how much does a cremation cost in DFW?” However,
it is one tip that is guaranteed to save you money.
2. Avoid corporate-owned
Dallas-Fort Worth cremation companies
3. Consider a direct cremation
in Dallas-Fort Worth
A cremation with a service in
Dallas will still work out cheaper than a traditional burial, as savings
can be made on the casket, cemetery plot and burial container. However,
a direct cremation, which is a cremation with NO service, will significantly
reduce your overall funeral costs. A direct cremation in the DFW
area can be obtained for under $800.00. If you opt for a DFW direct
cremation, you can then conduct your own memorial service. This saves
on the expense you would have paid the funeral home for.

service in DFW
Family-directed funerals are
coming back into vogue. What does this mean? Simply that the family
arrange the funeral services, as opposed to employing the services of a
funeral director. If you arrange a basic direct cremation you can
organize your own memorial service at a time and place convenient for all
family and friends, plus you can personalize it in a way that only family
These days’ families are
opting to hold memorial services in a variety of locations. It does not
have to be a place of faith or a funeral home, it can be held at a community
center, a country club, a ranch or just about anywhere. Life celebration
services are becoming more popular, so the memorial does not have to be
a somber event.

with the ashes

so we are being presented with more choices as to what we can do with cremated
remains. Cremated remains can be interred similar to a burial, however,

something unique and personalized. There are a whole array of keepsake
urns and cremation jewelry, aside from many ash scattering opportunities.
