2. Cost of storing the body.

The body is sheltered in refrigeration while at the crematory. The reasons for doing this may vary as some states as stated in their laws required a certain duration of time to pass before a body is cremated. During the waiting period, we may charge your family for refrigeration depending on the days spent.

Families may delay in decision making, waiting for other members and friends to arrive for their final farewell before cremation or waiting for a criminal investigation to be concluded if the death was questionable; as you wait, time and days continue to pass hence extra storage fee may be charged and all these will affect the actual cost of cremation process.
