Frequently Asked Questions

What does a casket cost?

When someone dies, final disposition can take the form of burial, cremation, or donation to a medical facility. In these instances, families often choose to have a service before disposition takes place.

Caskets are always used when the disposition is burial and are sometimes used when cremation is chosen.

Caskets are made from either metal (usually bronze, copper or steel), hardwood or pressed wood covered with cloth. Some metal caskets seal to prevent the entrance of air or moisture. Caskets built expressly for cremation are made with no metal parts to facilitate the actual cremation. Casket rental is also an option.

• Caskets at Hamilton's range in price from $875.00 to $9,580.00
