Interest in cremation is growing at a rapid pace, and one of the core reasons is affordability. Compared to a traditional burial, a direct cremation will likely cost many thousands of dollars less.

What Is a Direct Cremation?

Direct cremation is the term used when cremation service is provided without any additional services. If you’d like any additional services such as visitation or a memorial service, our funeral director will gladly review these options with you.

According to an expert answer at, “the cost of cremation typically ranges from $2,000 to $4,000 if arranged through a funeral home and from $1,500 to $3,000 if arranged directly through a crematory.”

At Affinity Funeral Service, however, we have a company owned crematory, which has two main benefits for you:
The body of your loved one and their cremains never leave our care.
We can offer significant cost savings when compared to a traditional funeral home that has to “outsource” the service to a crematory.
