How Much Does A Cremation Urn Cost?
The growing preference for cremation over burial can be attributed to various factors, such as individual choice, environmental responsibility, and financial considerations. After cremation, families can place the remains in cremation urns or other containers of their choice, and it’s where the question of cremation costs comes in.
Families may choose to keep the urn at home, bury it in their garden or cemetery, or place it in a columbarium located on the premises of funeral homes or graveyards. At Nutmeg State Cremation Society, we prioritize transparency in our services and pricing to serve our community better.
The cost of cremation urns can vary significantly depending on size, design, and construction material. Currently, a significant portion of the total cost of cremation, which ranges from $4,000 to $7,000 for families, can be attributed to the cost of urns.
Standard, full-sized, and permanent urns can range in price from $129 plus taxes to $2,250, while green burial containers may cost between $50 and $350. These cremation costs are only averages and can vary depending on where you buy the urns.
How Cremation Urn Cost Depends On The Type
The funeral director can provide all the necessary details about cremation urns, including the materials used, available styles, and prices. Here are some options to consider:
- Consider a higher-priced urn if you plan to display the urn at a prominent place, such as in your home or office.
- If you wish to keep a portion of the ashes nearby but have budget limitations, a keepsake urn made of inexpensive materials like ceramic could be a suitable choice. The remaining ashes can be scattered in a particular location, while a small portion is kept in the keepsake urn.
- Keepsake urns are commonly used to hold the cremains of infants and young children due to their smaller size, and they are more reasonably priced compared to full-size urns.
