Now I’m totally confused. We live in Madison, WI. The lowest estimate for direct cremation is from Gunderson Funeral and Cremation Care. Their basic fee (with no additional services, such as container, death certificate, transportation, etc.) is $2,080. This is compared to Neptune Society package totaling $2,473 which includes all the above. I just worry about Neptune’s trustworthiness. Will they be there when we die?!
