About Us

Affordable Cremation & Burial (established 2014) is an independent, locally owned and operated funeral home located in Duluth, Minnesota. We are fully licensed to provide services in Minnesota and Wisconsin.

We offer the same services as any other funeral establishment, including traditional funerals. The one exception is that we do not host funerals on our premises. As a result, our overhead costs are much lower, which significantly increases our affordability. For example, if your desire is to have a church funeral, you can expect to save thousands of dollars by choosing Affordable Cremation & Burial.

Public ceremonies are held at a location of your choosing (church, chapel, synagogue, community center, etc.). For cremations, we use Duluth’s first established crematory located at Park Hill Cemetery, operated by a CANA certified crematory operator.

A note from Matt Johnsrud, owner/operator of Affordable Cremation & Burial:

“I’ve been in the funeral business for many years. I know well the intensity of the moment, the stress and emotion, that you, as a client, are experiencing when you require my services. I promise that l will treat you as I would want myself or my loved ones to be treated in your situation. I will work attentively to empower you to make the best decisions according to your wishes and budget. Affordability isn’t about cutting corners, it’s about maximizing what I can provide for you—exceptional service at an honest price. This is my way of repaying you for putting your trust in me during your time of loss and need.”
