Planning ahead and making decisions for what your wishes are after you pass can weigh heavily on you, especially when a more traditional burial may feel more familiar. There are many reasons why cremation may be a good option to consider when it comes to pre-planning your final arrangements, but a few main ones stand out. We’ve put together a quick list of pros about cremation that may help you decide a simpler, and more affordable option is best for you.
- Lower Cost. When people make the decision to pre-plan, cost is often the first thing factored in. According to a BankRate.com article, you can save between $8,000 and $24,000 by selecting a direct cremation over a traditional funeral and burial.
- Simpler. The next thing to consider is how simple or complex you want things to be. With a cremation, there are less decisions to be made. You won’t have to worry about a casket or headstone or what clothing or jewelry you’d like to be buried with you.
- Lasting Memories. Your loved ones can have a piece of jewelry made from the ashes, memorial stones that can be shared, an urn, or scatter ashes in places that are meaningful to them.
- Online Arrangements. You can make arrangements and plan ahead all from your computer at home! Use our online quoting tool to get started.
