How Much Does It Cost to Die?

Une Belle Vie released this infographic on the cost of death. The infographic illustrates how much funerals, memorials, cremations and other death care options costs have risen from 1960 to 2010.

It also provides the breakdown cost between burials and cremations and their impact on the environment.

The in-depth research tapped resources such as the Cremation Association of North America (CANA), the National Funeral Director’s Association (NFDA),, and pulled up to date information directly from iMortuary’s funeral database.
