Choosing a Cremation Casket

A cremation casket is a dignified way to move the deceased until the body is cremated. If a funeral service is performed prior to the final disposition, a casket may be needed to display the body as well. With the cremation process in mind, the casket should be free of metal parts, leak-proof, and sturdy enough for transportation of the mortal remains of the decedent.

Cremation Casket Choices

The Nutmeg State Cremation Society delivers personalized funeral services. We offer a variety of cremation caskets depending on client requirements. Most people are confused about what cremation entails and have questions about how to select a cremation casket; the following details could be of guidance. There are various aspects to consider while selecting a casket, such as:

1. Material

There are numerous cremation casket options to choose from, and since the casket will be burned along with the ashes, it is safer to opt for something eco-friendly. You can pick from the following casket materials:

  • Wood (oak or mahogany are some options)
  • Particle-board boxes are yet another low-cost casket material.
  • Cardboard containers 

2. Cremation Casket Prices

The cost of a casket varies depending on the type chosen, which can range between $40 and $6,000 depending on your choice. If you buy the casket from a third-party seller, you must also consider shipping costs. The funeral director at a respectable funeral home will supply you with all of the details you need about the casket, supplies, and prices.

Most funeral homes offer a selection of cremation caskets for sale at fair prices. You can share your expectations with them and choose something that meets your needs while being within your budget.
