3 Different Options for Funeral Services


If you're in the position of needing to plan a funeral, it can be hard to know where to start. From cremation services to visitations, there are so many variations of a funeral service to consider when the time comes. Here's a brief look at some of the scenarios we often recommend to families at Burkhead-Green-Kilgo Funeral Home.


Immediate Burial Services


Are you looking to save on your services? While we never want families to feel like they have to settle because of financial circumstances, we understand the concern. According to New York Life Insurance, you can expect to pay between roughly $8,000 and $12,000 for a traditional funeral service, which is more than many families are comfortable spending. Of course, even if you can, you may prefer your loved one be buried or entombed without the public aspect. In addition, if you're planning a memorial service at a later date due to family circumstances, you might also consider this option. There are all kinds of reasons you may prefer immediate burial services.


Cremation Services


After the cremated remains are in an urn (or perhaps multiple urns), they can be kept in your home, interred in a family plot with a graveside ceremony, or put in an urn garden. Be sure to ask our team about the wide variety of cremation options we have to suggest. We highly recommend holding visitation and funeral services to honor your loved one's life.




Many people choose to have their cremated remains spread over water, into a garden, or at some other significant location for the person in question. This can include a ceremony or it can be private depending on your preferences. Even after the ashes have been scattered, you or your family will still have the container as a memento if desired. When it comes to funeral services and honoring the memories of our loved ones, it's often gestures like these that make the most impact.
