Funeral Expense Report



Funeral Expenses on the Rise as Choices Narrow
With average funeral costs rising, people are better preparing so their families are not faced with the hardest decisions all alone, weighted with added stress.
Since the 1960s, NFDA has calculated the median cost of a funeral by totaling the costs of the items listed in the table below. The cost does not take into account cemetery, monument or marker costs, crematory fees (if cremation is selected), or cash-advance items such as flowers and obituaries.
The national median cost of a funeral for calendar year 2012 was $7,045. If a vault is included, something that is typically required by a cemetery, the median cost is $8,343.

Cremations are on the rise. By the end of 2015, the U.S. cremation rate is projected to be 48.2 percent, up slightly from 45.8 percent for burials. NFDA estimates a whopping 70.6 percent of the population will choose cremation by 2030.
One major reason for this progressive increase is whether one can afford the traditional burial.

Whatever proceeds that remain after payment of these expenses are for your loved ones to keep.
