When it comes to the burial of your loved one, it is important to follow your heart. And do what you and your family want. Of course, you want to make sure it is affordable. And when you are looking at affordability, the cost of a cremation is cheaper than the cost of an in-ground burial.
However, cremation is not just for those looking to save money. There are other key benefits with a cremation. Let's take a look at some of those benefits as to why some may choose a cremation over an in-ground burial.
When you opt for a cremation, you have more flexibility with your funeral services. You are not beholden to a grave site and the scheduling that comes with that service. With a cremation, you can schedule your service at the time and place of your choosing. You can go anywhere you want and are not tied down by having to bury your loved one in a grave site. Bring your loved one to special places and honor their memory. Spread their ashes in places that are special to you and your loved one.
Distribute Presence of Loved One
Speaking our bringing your loved one to places, you can bring the urn to friends and family for more personal times of grieving. A burial in a cemetery requires those to come down to the grave site in order be there for the funeral and pay their respects. But when you opt for a cremation, you have the urn and the ashes. So you can bring them to people and make it easier everyone. Especially for those friends and family who do not live nearby. They can still pay their respects and not be burdened by a long travel route. With a cremation, you can have multiple ceremonies so no one is prevented from paying their respects. And you can distribute the ashes to multiple family members in a solemn way so that they can be in constant remembrance.
Acceptance by Many Faiths and Religions
Of course there are a few exceptions, but nowadays most faiths and religions have embraced cremation as an acceptable service for their loved ones. For many, religion and faith is the primary concern for those opting for cremation over an in-ground burial.
Last, but not least, is the urn. When you opt for a cremation, you get the ashes places in an urn. Of course there are standard ways of getting an urn. But you can also get a personalized urn in the spirit of your loved one. A great way to keep him or her in your memory.
