About Crematories and Cremation Costs

Cremation costs are often much lower than burial costs, making cremation a more affordable and popular death-care option for families. Over 50% of the US population now opts for cremation.  

In some states, crematories (also called crematoriums) can be owned by funeral homes or cremation establishments. In other states, crematoriums must remain under independent ownership.

Crematories often work directly with the the funeral service providers as a trade service, but in some areas, crematories will work directly with consumers. Cremation services provided by funeral homes and mortuaries will liase with a crematory. Picking the right funeral home, or cremation service is the first step you will need to take in laying your loved one to rest.

Finding crematoriums that work with the public has never been faster or easier. Simply enter your City, State or Zip Code in the Funerals360 Search Box to get started.
