Consider Cremation

Whenever there is a death in the family, the survivors find themselves in a dilemma as whether they should opt for cremation or burial. If the wishes of the deceased are known, then there is nothing to worry about. But things can become really difficult if the decisions are to be made by the surviving members.

Cremation is an age-old process in which a body is exposed to extreme heat for two hours or more. Through this process the body is reduced to its basic elements, which are referred to as the “cremated body” or “cremated remains.” Cremation occurs in our crematory in a specially designed cremation chamber. Many people are surprised to learn that ashes are not the final result since cremated remains have neither the appearance nor the chemical properties of ashes. They are, in fact, bone fragments. These fragments are further reduced in size through a mechanical process.

Save on costs

The process is less expensive as compared to ground burial. In 2009, the average cost of a traditional burial was $6,560, while the average cost of a cremation with service and viewing starts was $1,280. The low cost of being cremated makes it the cheapest form of human interment.

Many Options

With the process of being cremated, you get a wide array of memorial options. You can go for the traditional burial option where the cremated remains can be buried. Other options are storing the ashes in columbaria, planting a memorial tree, wearing cremation jewelry filled with the ashes of a loved one and so on.

With no coffin, burial, monument, or plot, a desire to be cremated can cost as little as a sixth of what a traditional burial costs. Cremations can cost as little as $1,000. It’s more flexible. Ashes are much more easy to deal with than physical remains.
