The growing expense of funerals is one reason many will look to plan and pay for theirs in advance. If you have ever had to plan a funeral, though, you know that even the basics are expensive.
A funeral today will cost you anywhere between 7,000 and 12,000 dollars, depending on what services you want. At this price, you can expect the viewing plus burial. It will also include basic service fees, transporting the remains to a funeral home, the cost of a casket, embalming, and various preparation services.
