For several years now we have been showing folks how to lower the cost of a funeral. Recently the Boston Herald has done a post coming down hard on Funeral Directors.

Most of us have been there.

Grandma dies, or dear old dad. Everybody’s at the funeral home. Some oily guy with soft hands shows you the solid walnut casket for $4,000 and the gold-trimmed version for $5,500. Then there’s the funeral burial vault (the what?) for another $1,000. “It protects the body from the, uh, well, uh,” says oily guy in faked solemn tones, “the, uh, organisms and uh, decomposition.”

“Look at this cheap swindler,” you’re thinking. “But we can’t scrimp on grandma,” says keep-up-with-the-Joneses sister. Newly orphaned mom, meanwhile, is useless, just wailing away there in her funeral-home-special, hard-backed chair.

And before you know it, you’ve spent $10,000.via

The article quoted may be a bit harsh. My experience confirms that there are funeral directors like this. But you do not have to spend $10,000.00 on a Funeral. Through basic negotiation techniques you can lower the cost of a funeral. You can have a great funeral for grandma with lower funeral cost.
