How much does cremation cost without services?

If your loved one chose cremation, you may want to skip the public viewing of the embalmed body and save money. Instead, allow family members to say their final goodbyes privately.

A private ceremony with no service allows you to spend quiet time with your loved one before the cremation takes place. 

It's similar to a casket burial but much less.

Private cremation is priced $2215 in Orange, CA.

Cost of Cremation vs Burial

In the sunshine state cremation services vary as does burial costs. But in general you will find cremation expenses are less.

A burial service uses more items and more labor, which increases the actual price of the burial funeral. The average consumer will have to pay for:

  • Casket 
  • Embalming
  • Cemetery plot
  • Burial fees
  • Tombstone or grave marker

But you can consider a direct burial if cremation is not an option. 

What about a "no-cost" or free cremation in California?

The term "no-cost" cremation in California refers to whole-body donation. While there may be transportation costs and obtaining death certificates, this option can have no charges and offer a free cremation.

But it's not for everyone. The chances are high ashes will never be returned back to your family. It is donated to the school or a scientific program. 

And there is no guarantee the body is cremated. Learn more below.
