Bi-State Cremation & Funeral Service offers very affordable cremation services in the St. Louis area, including in St. Charles. Our affordable St. Charles cremation services offer both the possibility of a wider range of memorialization options and the lower cost associated with not needing an in-ground burial.
Not only are cremations more affordable than burials, we believe we have the most affordable cremation services in the St. Charles area. The three most popular options we have to offer for cremation packages are a direct cremation without viewing, a direct cremation with a private viewing, and a cremation with a memorial service. For an additional fee we offer urns in which to hold cremated remains.
In general, our cremation packages are less costly than funeral packages. Cremations provide a lower price point compared to a traditional St. Charles funeral service. They also offer the flexibility of being able to memorialize a loved one virtually anywhere, which you cannot do with a casket. If the loved one who was cremated grew up somewhere outside St. Charles, holding a memorial service there with an urn is far less expensive than transporting a casket to the memorial service. If the deceased happened to love and frequent a particular park, with the permission of the park you could hold a memorial service in that park. You could do this with an urn, but you most likely could not with a casket.
Once a loved one has been cremated, you can choose to bury the ashes, scatter them or keep them in an urn. An advantage of having ashes is you can take the ashes, in an urn or other container, to a location outside the general range that a funeral home will go for a burial. It is best to check state and local laws about where you can scatter or bury ashes before you do so. Scattering or burying ashes can be done by just one person or by several people, making it an even more personal, intimate event.
For the affordable St. Charles cremation of a loved adult or child, our memorial services are provided by a compassionate staff, ready to customize a package for you. We know that this can be a difficult decision but please know that we’re here for you.
