A Denver cremation is often chosen for its affordability as much as the convenience and simplicity. The cost of cremation in Denver runs one-fourth to one-third the cost of the average burial, a big cost savings. With cremation, Denver families avoid the cost of a cemetery plot, casket, burial vault and liner, and headstone.
When minimizing funeral costs, there are additional ways to control costs. Some families forego a traditional funeral for a memorial service or a private scattering ceremony. A memorial service or scattering is done in any manner that befits the deceased and allows family and friends to honor and memorialize the deceased while processing their grief. A memorial service is as simple or complex as the family chooses to make it. A Denver cremation memorial service may include readings and funeral songs in a chapel or a restaurant dinner for a large group of family and friends. The cost is managed through the choice of memorial.
Preplanning a Denver cremation also controls cremation costs. With Neptune Society Denver, for example, clients receive the best price for cremation with advance planning. A commitment to a Denver cremation plan locks in today’s best price for cremation and eliminates future cost increases. Advance planning of a Denver cremation is one more way to control funeral costs.
