Direct Cremation


Direct Cremation – Affordable Cremation Prices

Serving all of the Lafayette, LA area, Cypress Funeral Home & Crematory offers Direct Cremation, the simplest and most affordable option available to you and your family. The cost of a direct cremation with no funeral or memorial service is often 1/4 that of a traditional burial and is an affordable option for any family. We take your loved one into our care, complete all the paperwork and death certificate, then we cremate and return the remains in a basic container to the family.  Because Cypress has an onsite crematory, we offer the most affordable cremation prices in the Lafayette, LA area.

What’s Included in Direct the Cremation Prices?

Our charges for direct cremation include: basic services of a funeral director, staff, and overhead; a proportionate share of overhead costs; transfer of remains to the funeral home; other preparation of the body, cremation process, and utility vehicle. If you want to arrange a direct cremation, you can use an alternative container. Alternative containers encase the body and can be made of materials like fiberboard or composite materials. The alternative containers we provide are constructed of paperboard.
