A no-cost alternative to traditional funeral & cremation services in Arizona

Two of the biggest questions people have when searching for end-of-life options are: How much will the services cost, and what will they be able to afford?

Cremation cost factors

While cremation typically offers a substantial cost savings over a funeral, prices can vary dramatically with both. Factors include:

  • Where you live — larger cities tend to be more expensive
  • The funeral home or cremation provider you work with
