If he had IRA's some have death benefits I just found out today an agent who my husband had an IRA with because I called their main office for information about my life insurance and he noted that I made the call and called me and I opened up my heart about how upset I was with the husband leaving me in such a mess and he told me an IRA my husband had taken out had a death benefit and that will help me greatly paying off debts that are now mine-inherited of course he is going to make some calls to help this is the best news I have received since he passed away-most people do not even know what I am up against-I feel like a jerk letting him getting away with his spending if it had been the other way with me leaving such a mess everyone would have known but at least my life insurance would have covered that amount his did not and if we had had to go on medicade I would not have had enough to live on because an elder lawyer had lied to us many years ago. It was God looking out for me that had this agent call me and me return his call. Also if you are not keeping the ashes you can get them in a cheap container -we got a beautiful one for my husband and it is go nice I am not going to bury it but will get him a headstone-it is marble and cost about 900.00 dollars.

The Trident Society and/or the Neptune society have secure priced plans for cremation. They take the body 24/7, get death certificate, cremate, have urn. Think it's about $1500, with additional cost for internment at sea in a reef, or scattered at sea. Where you put the ashes is your choice. A notch at local cemetary, cheapest was $900.
My sister got all overboard when her grandson died suddenly, and bought a $2000 huge turned stainless steel urn, which was pretty useless as the family spread his ashes here and there. YOu can get ashes urns on ebay for good price. Nice to get details over with before all the stress at the end.

one piece of information I got on this sight was to contact the bank your father banks and and some of these places offer a $1000.00 plan for burial with no cost to the person. Every penny counts and if it is free - hey why not take it. I just signed my dad up at his bank. They will try and upgrade you to other costs but certainly worth the call.
Good luck
