These days, cremation is much more popular than burial due to various factors, such as personal preference, environmental friendliness, and cost. Following cremation, the family receives the cremains or ashes and can store them in cremation urns or other containers.

Some families keep the urn in their own homes, while others bury it in their yards or at cemeteries. Other people store the urn inside a columbarium, a special structure that some cemeteries and funeral homes have on their premises. At George Darte Funeral Home, we believe in providing our clients with information about the various services we offer and their associated costs.

Cremation Urns Pricing

There are many options to consider when planning a funeral. Once you choose cremation as the final disposition method, the question of which urn to use becomes the next thing to think about. Since there are many different types of urns their costs different significantly. It's important to remember that the urn's cost will depend on factors like its size, material, styling and more.

The price for a permanent, full-sized urn begins at $129 plus HST. You can make it as simple or intricate as you like and can choose customized embellishments and personalization options. Some people also choose green cremation urns, which can cost in the range of $70 to $200.

Types Of Cremation Urns

You can talk to the funeral director about your preferences, and they will give you all the information you require about cremation urns, their materials,, varieties, and prices. Some options include the following:

You should spend more money on an expensive urn if you intend to display it in your residence or another visible location.

A keepsake cremation urn is an option to consider when your financial resources are limited, but you still desire to keep some of the remains close at hand. Keepsake urns hold a token amount of ashes for display, and the rest can be scattered in a meaningful location. Keepsakes are frequently used to store infant and young child ashes because they only contain a small amount of cremains. The cost of keepsakes is significantly lower than that of full-size urns.

The cremation urn you choose is a personal choice and having this information handy gives you the flexibility to choose something that works well for you and your family.
