One of the difficulties in finding a truly low cost cremation is that most people do not look much beyond their immediate area for a provider. Most of the firms locally do not specialize in cremation, and either do not have or else they hide their low-cost cremation services.
But there are many low-cost cremation firms who will pick up a body, perform the cremation, handle all legal details including death certificates for under $750. What's more, many firms will drive as far as 50-70 miles to pick up the body at no or a low additional charge.
So, how do you find these firms? One place to look is online, at www.cremation.com . Since listed firms specialize in cremation, you are more likely to find a low-cost solution. Also, many firms will advertise as far as 50 miles from their actual location, thus giving you a much larger list of firms to choose from.
