Funeral Financials Issues Top 3 Reasons Why Cremation is Increasing in Popularity
Date:6/20/2013

New York, NY (PRWEB) June 20, 2013

Burials have traditionally been more common than cremation, but that is changing. It's projected that more Americans will be cremated than buried in just a few years, TIME reported in a June 13, 2013 article titled "Cremation: The New American Way of Death." There are several reasons for this shift, including beliefs, values, and cost.

Below, Funeral Financials gives the top 3 reasons why cremation is experiencing a rise in popularity.

1. Lower cost. Choosing cremation can cost 25% of what a traditional burial costs. A cremation means no casket cost, hearse or embalmment fees. Depending on the deceased's wishes, it can also often mean no headstone or burial plot. Today's society is much more mobile too, so transporting an urn across the country to its final resting place is sometimes chosen instead of making arrangements for the transport of a casket and the deceased's body. Funeral Financials does issue a caution to people whom have funeral insurance- make sure that someone knows about the insurance. It will not do any good in helping with the funeral costs if no one knows that the policy exists.

2. A break with tradition. The majority of people in the U.S. practice the Christian faith which favors burial for religious reasons. However, the nation is becoming more secular as time goes on, so more and more people are exploring other funeral options aside from the traditional burial. Cremation is a process that can be appealing to people of all beliefs – whether religious or secular.

3. Eco-friendly. Cremation is a "greener" option compared to a full burial because it does not include embalming processes or space within the earth that must be maintained in perpetuity. As people become more eco-conscious in their daily lives, it makes sense that they would pursue burial options that reflect the values they held while living.

Cremation will soon become the most popular funeral option in the United States. Funeral Financials notes the top 3 reasons for cremations’ increase in popularity: they appeal to people of all faiths and beliefs; they have an eco-friendly process; they are more affordable.
