Affordable Cremation & Burial is locally owned and operated by me, Matt Johnsrud. I am a licensed funeral director and embalmer in Minnesota and Wisconsin. Despite my young appearance, I am well versed in all aspects of funeral service. Local ownership means; no sales pressure, personalized service, and honest answers.
Affordable Cremation & Burial is a fully licensed mortuary serving Minnesota and Wisconsin. We use Duluth’s first established crematory located at Park Hill Cemetery, operated by a CANA certified crematory operator.
The difference between Affordable and other funeral homes is size. We do not have a chapel on site for public services. All the Funerals, Memorial Services, and Celebrations of Life are held at a location of your family’s choosing; church, fraternal organization, community center.
We pass these overhead savings on to you, the families we serve. It isn’t about being the cheapest; it’s simply that losing a loved one no longer means you lose your life savings. Lower fees for your family is our way of saying, “Thank you”.
We offer full traditional funerals in addition to simple cremation services. If your desire is to have a church funeral, you will save thousands by choosing Affordable Cremation & Burial.
I offer one simple guarantee; l will treat your family as my own, and give you the best service possible.
Affordable Cremation & Burial can assist you, even if you are prearranged with another funeral establishment. You are not “locked-in” by “memberships”, you can always change your mind. Prepaid funeral funds can be used at Affordable Cremation & Burial, or any mortuary of your choosing.
If you need immediate assistance, call (218) 491-7011. I am available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. If you are seeking more information, there is a wealth available on this website. If you don’t find the answer you are looking for, I am always available to answer your questions.
