INEXPENSIVE FUNERAL TRENDS
Natural burials: Also known as green burials, these make use of a wooden coffin or in some instances, the body is wrapped in a decomposable blanket. Cremation: Cremation is the cheapest option available and costs around R6 000. While not the traditional African way, a cremation will greatly save your pocket. Digital and interactive tombstones: Bataung Tombstones were the first local company to incorporate QR codes and braille writing on tombstones. Across our borders, some companies use interactive tombstones that are weather- and vandal-proof, and can display pictures, video and other digital content pertaining to the deceased.
Home funerals: Some families are opting to hold funeral services at home to cut out a bulk of professional fees.
