  1. I have had to help organise 4 cremations in the last 6 years in Australia (no service costs) & the costs of just the cremations were:
    2010: $3,000 AUD ($2,308 USD)
    2012: $4,500 AUD ($3,462 USD)
    2015: $5,000 AUD ($3,846 USD)
    2016: $6,000 AUD ($4,616 USD)

    This was without an elaborate cremation or service as well
