There are lots of online auctions for cremations online, but there are a few that will set you back a lot more than you would expect.
For one, cremation services will typically cost between $20,000 and $40,000 depending on how much you want and where you want to put the body.
There’s also a lot of confusion over what a cremation is, and how much money you should actually be paying for it.
“There are lots more people asking how much I should pay for the cremation than the crematory,” Ms Gaudreault said.
“People are trying to get the cheapest cremation and then they’re going to be paying more for the funeral.”
Auction site: ctrb.com.auCremation companies are often offering a lot less money than they should.
For example, there’s a lot that people don’t know about the crematoria they’re paying for, or the type of equipment used in cremations.
“If you have the crematorium you’re paying a lot, but if you have a cemetery you’re getting less,” Ms Hatton said.
The same goes for crematory equipment.
“It’s a big difference.
You have to have a crematory with a furnace, an oven, you need to use electricity to run it, so that’s not included in the price,” she said.
While there are some cremation companies that charge a higher price for their cremation, that doesn’t necessarily mean they’re the best option for you.
“Crematory equipment can cost up to $2,500 for the first cremation,” Ms O’Donnell said.
“There’s a ton of things that you’re buying and there’s no way you’re ever going to use them all.”
So what should you do if you’re going for a cremary online?
For one thing, you can always call the crematories directly.
“They’re more professional than the other way around,” Ms Cramb said.
If you’re in the market for a family or friend to bury, there are other options available.
For instance, if you want a crematorium that’s free to use, you’ll have to use the cremating facility for your own funeral, and there are funeral directors in your area that can provide you with free cremation.
