Planning a funeral in Austin, Texas

If you’re planning a funeral in Austin, Texas, it’s generally a good idea to start by deciding what kind of funeral you want to have. Burial or cremation? Do you want a viewing? Should there be a formal funeral service, or would you prefer a celebration of life? (If you’re not sure what makes the most sense, you may want to try our free funeral planning guide.)

These decisions will help you choose the funeral home for your needs. If all you want is an affordable direct cremation in Austin, there are a few funeral homes that specialize in this. On the other hand if you want a funeral with a view, service and graveside service, you may want to lean toward a more traditional funeral home. When selecting an Austin funeral home, it’s also a good idea to compare prices and online reviews, as not all funeral homes are similar.

If you choose to do a burial, you’ll also need to find an Austin cemetery plot, if you haven’t already. Fortunately, there are many cemeteries in the Austin area to choose from. You may want to see a few in person to get a sense for where you’re most likely to go back and visit.

If you decide to do a cremation in Austin, you can choose to bury the ashes in a cemetery plot, keep them in an urn at home or scatter them in a place of your choosing. There are lots of beautiful areas around Austin where you can scatter ashes; it all comes down to what feels most meaningful to you and your family.
