The Benefits of Simple Cremations
In today’s blog article, we would like to talk about the benefits of simple cremations. There are several benefits, but far and above the rest, the biggest benefit is one of simplicity.
Preparing for a large, full-scale funeral with interment is a big deal. It requires making several decisions and can be quite costly. You have to choose the funeral home, the cemetery, the casket, who is officiating, alerting the public, as well as potentially flowers, music, and speeches.
Not everyone has the time or energy for all that. A cremation is much simpler. You just decide who is doing the cremation and what you want done with the cremains afterwards. For grief-stricken individuals, it can be a welcome relief to avoid so many complications—and the public.
Another benefit of a simple cremation is time. It takes time to plan a big funeral, and if you want people to come from far away, then you have to delay it for their arrival. In British Columbia, a cremation can take place as soon as 48 hours after death. Having a cremation done quickly and quietly is a big advantage to some families.
A third benefit worth mentioning is the benefit of money. The plain fact is that cremation is much cheaper than interment, and this reason alone is a big reason why so many people today choose cremation. When you add up all the incremental costs of an interment plus the headstone which will be needed at a later date, cremation costs a small fraction of that.
