The average cost of cremation with services handled through a funeral home is between $2,000 and $4,000. If these same services are handled directly through a crematory, you can expect to pay between $1,500 and $3,000.

When choosing cremation following a funeral service, you can expect to pay between $4,000 to $6,000 at a funeral home or $3,000 to $4,000 at a crematory.

Typically, these prices include the cost of the actual cremation and a basic memorial service. Some families may instead choose to cremate the body after first holding a viewing or funeral ceremony.

This type of cremation with service can increase costs considerably by requiring you to purchase a casket and pay more for the funeral director's basic services.
