The NYC Medical Examiner’s Office informed The Wall Street Journal that many of the bodies are of people whose families could not be located or could not cover the costs of the burial. 

NYC increased its burial assistance costs to $1,700 from $900 in May, according to the New York State Funeral Directors Association (NYSFDA). 

The average price of a traditional burial service in New York costs US$9,000. A typical cremation service costs about US$6,500, the NYSFDA informs.
