Is cremation cheaper than burial?

End-of-life planning is not easy. There are many factors to consider when making decisions for a loved one’s final arrangements. An important decision is the choice between burial or cremation. The difference between these two can be considerable.

In Mexico, the national average cost of cremation (with funeral) has risen sharply in the last five years. The most economical method is simple cremation, which takes place within hours of death without a traditional funeral service.

The average cost of burial can add up to more than $40,000 pesos. The total cost depends on the services and items selected for burial, including flowers, transportation and headstones. The coffins and the grave can cost thousands of pesos and constitute the major part of the funeral expenses.

Funeral services may include cremation in lieu of burial.

Choosing cremation does not preclude you from having a traditional funeral. After holding a traditional service, a family may choose to have their loved one cremated rather than buried in a cemetery. With the increase in rental caskets used for a funeral service accompanying a cremation, casket costs can be kept quite reasonable. Families may bury their loved one’s cremated remains in a cemetery at a later date or keep them at home.

There are additional costs and charges that you may encounter during the burial process with a funeral home and cemetery. These costs include: embalming, preparation of the body, caskets, crypts and/or funeral containers, graveside services, obituaries and headstones. While the funeral home is responsible for the deceased, casket, arrangements and services. Cemeteries manage their grounds, crypts, the opening and closing of the grave. Funeral homes and cemeteries are often separated.
