.Which Funeral Home to use in Orlando, Florida

Choosing to have a Burial or Cremation in Orlando

This is first question that needs to be addressed as the cost factors are quite different between burials and cremations in Orlando.  Most cemeteries in Orlando will require that a casket is buried in a grave liner in order to prevent the ground from subsiding.  These 2 items (casket + grave liner) plus the cost of the cemetery plot can run at several thousand dollars, and that is before the funeral home and funeral director have added their charges to the overall funeral bill.

Cremation eliminates the need for many of the products associated with a traditional funeral burial.  No casket is required, and there is no need to purchase a cemetery plot to house the casket in.  Some families choose to buy a more expensive urn and keep the ashes at home, and some will choose to have an ash scattering on either land or sea. 

Selecting a Funeral Home in Orlando

Orlando Cremation Providers

Almost all funeral homes in Orlando can offer cremations, however, there are cremation-only companies operating in the area.  It is important to understand that in the state of Florida, there is what are known as “Direct Disposers” who are NOT licensed funeral directors.  These companies are only permitted to offer Direct Cremations (without a service), so if you require a viewing or a service prior to the cremation in Orlando, you need to make sure you are dealing with a licensed funeral director. 

Direct Cremations in Orlando

A direct cremation in Orlando should be the least expensive option, however, be warned that a Direct Cremation in Orlando can cost anywhere from $750 to $3000, depending on the funeral home/cremation provider selected.  Many families today are choosing to have a direct cremation and then arranging their own memorial or celebration of life with the ashes present.  This is both practical in the sense that family members do not need to attend funerals at very short notice, and are also not paying the funeral home for using their premises to hold the services/viewings.  Families can then arrange their own memorial service at a time that suits them, not the funeral company.  Many people today feel that funerals have become so expensive that they are looking for alternatives, and this is why direct cremations are growing in popularity.

How much does a funeral or cremation in Orlando cost?

It is not uncommon to find prices for funeral and cremations varying by hundreds or even thousands of dollars between different funeral homes in Orlando.  However, it is very important to be comparing like-for-like funeral services.  Some funeral companies give out prices that do not include the crematory charge
