How much does a funeral cost in Southern Illinois?

At Maxton-Rosado Funeral Home, we understand that talking about death and finances can be difficult. But it's important to plan for these two things to ensure you and your loved ones are prepared.

When it comes to funeral costs in Southern Illinois, there are many factors to consider including professional services, casket or urn expenses, and cash advances. It's essential to do your research and compare prices among local funeral homes. Don't be afraid to ask questions and shop around to find an affordable option that fits your needs.

Beware of online providers that offer low prices without a local presence. They may not be able to provide the same level of care and support as a trusted local funeral home. At Maxton-Rosado Funeral Home, we are proud to serve the Southern Illinois community and provide affordable funeral options, including payment plans and low-cost cremations.

One of the first decisions you'll need to make is whether to choose cremation or traditional burial. Both options have their pros and cons, and both can be affordable. Our funeral director will help you weigh the costs and make the best decision for your family.

So now let’s get to the burning question, what will cremation cost versus what does burial cost? 

Here at Maxton-Rosado Funeral Home direct cremation starts at $1995 and direct burial (including casket) starts at $5995. There are many options that can be added to those packages. Your best choice is to call around and learn what your local Funeral Homes are charging.

A funeral service is a special time for family and friends to comfort one another, begin to find healing and celebrate a life well lived. No matter whether you choose burial or cremation, you can hold a funeral service in our chapel or a church to honor your loved one. We are happy to provide a traditional funeral arrangement or something completely unique. Many families and churches have special funeral traditions, and we will do our best to accommodate your requests. This is a moment for you and your family, and we are honored to help you in any way that we can.

Just like a funeral service, a memorial service is a time to remember your loved one. This can be held shortly after death or weeks later, with or without an urn present. What’s important is that it creates a time and a place for family and friends to gather together and support one another, share memories and pay their respects. We can hold a memorial service at our funeral home, the final resting place or at your home.  We also have Southern Illinois first Slumber Room for private family viewings.

A casket burial is a traditional service and there are many options you can choose from. We can provide an immediate burial without a public service; a visitation, viewing, or wake with a closed or open casket; a funeral service at our funeral home, church, or private home, and a graveside service at a cemetery. You can choose whether you’d like a public or private service or a combination. It is entirely up to you how you wish to pay your respects. Our burial options start at $5995 including the casket.

Cremation has become a popular option for many people because it can be more flexible as to where and when you hold a service. You can have a traditional funeral service before a cremation or a memorial service at any time with or without the urn present. You can keep the urn, scatter the ashes or have the urn buried in a grave or columbarium where we can hold a service. Our Cremation options start at $1995.
