Affordable Cremation in Albuquerque

Cost of an affordable cremation

An affordable cremation is a great option for many families. Funeral costs can be a concern for many today and some families simply cannot afford the cost of a full funeral.

Cost of Traditional Funeral

The average cost of a funeral is $7,045 (National Association of Funeral Directors 2012) not including cemetery costs. Overall a traditional funeral is likely to cost you somewhere $6,000 to $10,000 when everything is included.

Why is it so expensive?

A funeral home business is 24-hour, labor-intensive process. It requires investments like viewing rooms, chapels, limousines, and hearses. You will also need to embalm, purchase a cemetery plot, casket, gravestone or burial vault. All these expenses have to be included into the cost of a traditional funeral.

Cremations are cheaper because there is no need to embalm or to purchase a cemetery plot, casket, burial vault, or gravestone. 

We provide three types of cremation options:

1.    A direct cremation

A basic minimal cremation has no service or ceremony conducted by the funeral provider. 

2.    A cremation with a funeral service

In a cremation with a funeral service the deceased is present and the cremation is conducted after the memorial service.

3.    A cremation with a memorial service

The cremation is conducted first and a memorial service held with the cremation urn present.
