Carrollton is known for offering residents exceptional quality of life, but that doesn’t happen on its own. A lot of effort has gone into protecting green spaces, nature preserves and historic buildings so the city doesn’t become just another DFW distribution hub.
Innovative service providers like Green Cremation Texas are aiding the effort by offering the greenest, cleanest end of life services in Carrollton. We’ve revolutionized the process so that it’s greener without increasing cremation cost for Carrollton locals.
How much is cremation in Carrollton? And is the price comparable to a traditional burial? Is it possible to find cheap cremation in Carrollton without sacrificing service?
Burial and cremation prices in Carrollton can be hard to decipher. Funeral homes are required by law to provide an estimate sheet, but that’s exactly what it is – an estimate. We believe grieving families deserve straightforward funeral services that make the costs clear. That’s why we offer flat-rate services for a fixed price, and provide information that makes funeral costs in Carrollton more transparent.
It’s no secret traditional burial is the most expensive end of life service. The national average is now $7,630 for a standard funeral, which is in line with costs in Texas. Despite that large price tag it doesn’t include the burial plot, cemetery fees or headstone. When everything is factored in it isn’t uncommon for a traditional burial to cost over $10,000.
Traditional flame-based cremation is the next most expensive option. The average cremation cost in Carrollton is around $5,100. Nearly half of the cost is for memorial services at the funeral home.
Forgoing the memorial service at the funeral home will dramatically lower the cost. With direct cremation you get all of the essentials without the overpriced memorial and viewing services. Direct cremation prices in Carrollton start at about $850 and go up to over $2,000.
The City of Carrollton highlights its connection to the past, history and preservation. But the only way to do that is through innovative solutions that lower impact. What we provide at Green Cremation Texas is an elevated experience that families can feel good about. Our direct cremation service preserves your loved one’s memory while protecting the legacy they leave behind.
Families that prefer traditional cremation but are concerned with the environmental impact will gravitate toward our clean flame cremation. Our unique process minimizes energy use and reduces the amount of potential airborne pollutants.
Aquamation, also called water cremation or alkali hydrolysis, is the newest form of cremation. No flame is used in this process. Cremation is made possible by a pressurized chamber that’s filled with a water/alkali solution. The solution is slowly heated to cremate the body while using 90% less energy than flame cremation.
Natural burial is an environmentally friendly alternative to traditional burial that supports the conservation of natural resources. This kind of burial gives families the opportunity to surround their loved ones with a natural beauty to honor their departing journey. It often involves burying the person in a biodegradable container or shroud, free from embalming fluids, and limits the use of metal and concrete, thus leaving only a minimal impact on the environment.
Natural organic reduction is an innovative and environmentally friendly disposition. It is a process that breaks down organic material into nutrient-rich compost by using natural microorganisms present in the environment.
