Average Funeral Costs by State

 

The pain of losing loved ones is something we all must go through at some point in life. When that occurs, the first thought many have is how to give them a proper send-off, and remember their life at their funeral. However, arranging for a full funeral service can become quite expensive. 

A study conducted by the National Funeral Directors Association in 2021 found that the national average cost of an adult funeral, which included viewing and burial, was a minimum of $7,848, but could potentially be as expensive as $10,000. The highest expense is often the casket, with more traditional wooden caskets costing around $3,000, while ones made of metal cost around $2,500. Funeral costs vary from state to state, but they also depend much on the funeral home providing the service.
