Looking at the cremation costs to see if the CSNM Simplicity Cremation Plan is the right choice for you? The table below compares CSNM Simplicity Cremation Plan services (offered online or at our CSNM locations) with Funeral Director Assisted Arrangements at a full-service funeral home.
Review the comparison, and if your needs are better met at a full-service location, please call 505-843-6333 to make an appointment with a French funeral director.
No need to buy casket or headstone
If you are planning a funeral with limited financial resources, the cost of cremation urns and memorials will be lower than a traditional funeral with a casket and headstone. Cremation costs are lower because there is no need to embalm or to purchase a casket, cemetery plot, gravestone or burial vault.
However, the urn can also be buried, ashes can be scattered or you can place the urn in our columbarium.
