Why We Do What We Do 

Alternative Cremation & Funeral Service has opened its doors to provide the public with low-cost cremation and funeral services. Over the past several years, funeral and cremation costs, have increased substantially. This places an unfair burden on bereaved families who are already burdened with the loss of a loved one.

In Middle Tennessee it is common for funeral costs for a simple service to exceed $7,000 to $8,000, and in many cases as high as $11,000 to $13,000. Cremation costs will range in the area of $1,500 to $4,800 in most cases. We believe this is too expensive. We also find this is not what the public wants or deserves. Our goal at Alternative Cremation & Funeral Service is to reduce the costs to a reasonable price while still providing the service and detail to personal attention. Let our professionals explain your options with our affordable packages or help you design a customized service from our General Price List.
