Q1.What are the minimum and average costs for preparation, funeral and ??

A1.Chris and Stephanie Goes, Goes Funeral Care & Crematory:

The least costly service a funeral provider can offer is local pick up and simple cremation or body donation to the State Anatomical Board. This involves local transfer of the deceased to the funeral service provider, death certificate processing and the cremation (or transfer to University of Colorado/Denver for anatomical donation). The Anatomical Board decides as to whether or not they’ll accept the body. From there costs go up based on specific needs that might include anything from viewing of the deceased to newspaper notification to embalming to use of a hearse or limousine to the purchase of certified copies of the death certificate.

A ‘traditional’ service, that includes casket, burial vault, body viewing, memorial products, newspaper notification and fees to other participants, without cemetery costs, could climb to $4000 - $6000 or more. Then, add in cemetery charges and $10,000 or more is not out of the question for a fairly elaborate funeral. Cemetery costs vary, as do funeral home costs.
