Planning a funeral in Kansas City, MO

If you’re planning a funeral, there are several Kansas City funeral homes to choose from. However, funerals in Kansas City tend to be more expensive than other parts of the state, so it’s generally a good idea to compare prices from a few funeral homes if you’re on a budget. It’s often possible to save several thousand of dollars just by shopping around, and the most expensive funeral homes are not always the best ones.

If you’re planning a traditional burial (burial is more common than cremation in the state of Missouri), it’s also a good idea to compare options for cemetery plots. There are a good number of cemeteries in Kansas City. Many of the cemeteries have their own funeral homes; you can choose to do both the funeral and the burial with the same company or arrange them separately.

However, it may also be worthwhile to consider cremation options. Cremation is now more popular than burial across the United States. It’s generally more affordable, more environmentally friendly and offers more flexibility (there are many more places that you can choose to scatter ashes). At the end of the day, though, the best choice is what you feel most comfortable with, personally.

If you’d like help making decisions like these, you may want to try our free funeral planning tool. It will help offer guidance based on your personal values and then guide you through the planning process, step-by-step.
