Costs and Payment

Cremation is increasing in popularity compared to traditional burial services due in large part to the lower costs involved. While direct cremation offers the lowest costs, some people prefer cremation for other reasons.

Depending on your situation, there could be cremation payment or reimbursement options available through life insurance, or veteran’s benefits. Our staff is fully trained for all types of death benefits and will help you with any necessary paperwork to file for those benefits.

Cremation Process and Timing

At Affinity Funeral Service, we pride ourselves on handling the services of your loved one with the utmost dignity and care. We also stress the importance of efficiency with everyone on our team. When a family has chosen cremation, we make every effort to return your loved one’s cremated remains as soon as possible.

Many providers tell families that it will be a minimum of 15 days prior to receiving their loved one’s cremated remains back into their care.

While every family we serve is different, we average a three to five business day turnaround of cremated remains once all the necessary paperwork is in order. Delays usually occur when death occurs on a weekend or holiday and the primary care physician’s office is not available to receive the death certificate for signature.

The State of Virginia requires that a few items be completed prior to the cremation taking place, including the Cremation Authorization Form, Signed Death Certificate, and the Medical Examiner/Coroner Examination.
