The simplicity of a green burial means it does not need to be expensive. The costs for a natural funeral are significantly less expensive than a traditional funeral. Many of the conventional expenses, including embalming and elaborate caskets and headstones, have been eliminated.
- A traditional funeral with embalming costs an average of $8,000 and up, depending on services and location.
- A green burial at Cool Spring ranges from $2,500 for a cremation burial to $8,750 for a natural burial. This variation in costs reflects the location of the burial site chosen—in Blue Ridge Meadow, Woodland Rest, or Circle of Silence.
For peace of mind, we recommend making provisions in advance. This will relieve your loved ones of the distress that comes from making difficult, often costly, decisions during a time of grief. At Cool Spring, you will receive a 10 percent discount for pre-planning your final arrangements.
