Why Choose Cremation?

Whether you are planning your own funeral to make your end-of-life needs easier on loved ones and give you more control or you are planning the funeral for a loved one who has passed, you have a few options to consider for the final burial. You can have a body donated to science, buried in a traditional casket fashion, or you can choose cremation or other services.

Cremation is a growing form of burial choice for several reasons, of which you will learn about to some degree below. Discuss the benefits of a cremation service with your funeral director as you plan a funeral for you or someone you love. There are several options available to you, and this service can be done in addition to being an organ donor.

Cremation is cheaper

If you are on a budget, cremation is the cheaper option for a final burial. The process of cremation as well as the urns to place cremains in are both cheaper than a traditional embalming and burial. A burial plot can still be purchased if desired, but it not necessary when you have cremation done instead of a more traditional burial service. Your funeral director will help you understand what goes into a cremation service.

Cremation is versatile

If you want to be able to honor a loved one after they have passed or have a less final burial, then cremation is a wise choice. The cremains can be kept by loved ones after a person who is cremated has passed and can be placed in jewelry, egg timers, hour glasses, beautiful urns, simple urns, and other displays. Cremation allows for a more versatile way to honor a person and the grieving process.

If you're concerned about not being able to have a traditional funeral service due to a cremation, fear not: there are ways you can have a cremation service that mirrors a traditional funeral service. You can even have an urn taken to a final resting place at a cemetery for burial so those who are left behind have a more permanent place to honor the passed loved one at.

While cremation is not for everyone, it's a wise option worth considering for several reasons. A cremation provider can be quite beneficial in helping you choose the best final services for either yourself or someone else you know and love. Your funeral director will guide you in making the best decision for your funeral planning needs.
