A traditional burial is going to be the most expensive end of life service. The National Funeral Directors Association estimates that the average cost for a funeral with traditional burial is $7,360, and Dallas may actually be slightly higher. The estimate only includes funeral services and doesn’t account for additional costs like the plot and headstone.
The average cost of cremation in Dallas is about half the cost of a traditional burial. You can get cremation with memorial services at the funeral home for around $5,100. Many people don’t realize cremation prices in Dallas are almost the same as traditional burial because many of the same costs are involved when you have a viewing and memorial through the funeral home.
The cost of cremation without service in Dallas can be anywhere between $900-$2,000. Direct cremation prices in Dallas are extremely affordable because no extra preparations are needed for a viewing or funeral. The family can choose to hold a memorial service on their own independent of the funeral home.
