Why Choose Cremation

Why cremation? We find that often people have their own unique reasons for choosing our cremation services but there are some distinct benefits to choosing cremation. Check out our list below.

Benefits of Cremation

1. Cremation Costs
On average, cremation is about one-third the cost of a traditional burial. The average price of a casket is much higher than the average price for an urn. The availability of burial plots is becoming more and more limited, and therefore the price of plots has gone up.

2. More Environmentally Friendly
Casketed and embalmed remains take up cemetery space and can result in water pollution.

3. Relaxed Resistance from the Catholic Church
According to Tyler Mathisen of NBC, one of those reasons "is the softening of the Catholic church's views of the practice. For centuries – until 1963, in fact – the church outlawed it. The church's laws still express a preference for burial. But the outright ban is a thing of the past."  

He goes on to tell readers that the decline in nuclear families is another reason. "As more Americans live far from hometowns and parents, and as family burial plots have waned in popularity and accessibility, millions have turned to cremation as a practical and cost-effective way to care for a loved one's remains.”

4. Better Flexibility for Ceremonies
Cremation is more conducive for untraditional, personalized ceremonies. It allows you to hold a ceremony outside of a church or cemetery which may be great for a memorial service, celebration of life, or an ash scattering ceremony.
