The Peoples Memorial Association has found a great disparity in funeral prices in Washington State. Cremation prices vary by 700% and burial prices vary by 400% according to a recent survey. Shopping around is extremely important if you want to come in under the average cost of a funeral. It is key to a lower cost funeral.
It is my belief that the same situation is true across the country.
The PMA Education Fund conducted a survey of cremation and burial prices at 226 Funeral Homes throughout the state of Washington. This is the largest funeral home price analysis ever completed in Washington and shows a broad range in prices. Cremation prices vary by as much as 700% and burial prices over 400% depending upon the choice of funeral home. The study reinforces the importance of consumers shopping around and planning ahead to assure that they receive the final arrangements that they want at a price they can afford.
It is very important to shop around for a funeral to save on cost. The costs vary quite a bit which makes shopping around key.
