The cremation rate in Pennsylvania is around 30%, so below the national average rate at 41%, and with 126,000 deaths per year only 36, 500 funerals are cremations. Still the cremation trend is on the increase, as it is across the U.S., as Pennsylvanians demand more affordable options for their death care.
In many of the rural areas of Pennsylvania the small-town funeral home is still promoting, and conducting, more traditional burials than cremations. However, in Philadelphia and Pittsburgh a complete direct cremation can be purchased for around $1,000. If you live in an outlying rural area around Philadelphia or Pittsburgh, you may find that the DFS Memorials low cost provider may offer a direct cremation service in your area for an additional mileage fee.
At DFS Memorials, we believe that every family in Pennsylvania should be able to choose a simple, end-of-life funeral option that is dignified, affordable and professionally handled. DFS Memorials is a network of local, family owned and operated funeral homes and cremation providers who offer lower cost death care alternatives. Each member of the DFS Memorials network offers a Direct Cremation package for between $495 and $1395 (Prices do vary between providers).
DFS Memorials lowers the funeral cost for cremation services by only working with locally owned funeral homes and cremation providers. We help families in Pennsylvania save hundreds, even thousands, of dollars in funeral costs, a vital service to the American people in these more troubling financial times. We offer families quality service at discount prices, and we give our customer what they actually want, unlike many other funeral companies, who want to sell you many extra items and services, in order to increase the final bill for the funeral cremation service.

DFS Memorials helps families locate low cost cremations and burial services throughout Pennsylvania.
