Top 3 Affordable Funeral Ideas, Ewa, Hawaii

Experiencing the death of someone you love can be stressful, especially when it comes to planning the ceremony. However, there are affordable funeral options available that will allow your family to celebrate the life of your loved one without breaking the bank. The compassionate team at Leeward Funeral Home in Pearl City, HI, understands how important it is to honor life.

Below, their staff shares a few ways to plan an affordable funeral to celebrate the life of your loved one:

  • cremationConsider Cremation: Regarding affordability, cremation is an attractive alternative to a traditional burial. Since there’s no need for a plot of land in a cemetery or expensive casket, this option will drastically cut down on expenses. However, the cremation service itself is no different than a regular burial service. 
  • Plan a Memorial Instead of Funeral Service: A memorial is a wonderful way to celebrate someone’s life. Unlike traditional funerals, the celebration occurs without the presence of the deceased. You can hold the service in a church, funeral home, or another appropriate location a few days or a couple of weeks after the passing of a loved one. Because the memorial occurs without the body present, you can save money and concentrate on remembering the life of your loved one.
  • Go for a Green Burial: Celebrate life by opting for a burial that minimizes environmental impact. This service forgoes features like vaults, gravestones, embalming, and certain kinds of caskets. A green burial is not only ideal for its low costs, but it's also perfect for loved ones who cared about the environment.

Losing a loved one is never easy, but funeral planning doesn't have to include the burden of substantial expenses. You and your family can count on Leeward Funeral Home on Oahu to help you with your needs during your time of grief. Call them today at (808) 455-1041 and speak with a friendly representative, or visit their website for affordable funeral options.
