According to national figures, nearly 50% of those making funeral plans today choose cremation over burial. Reasons for selecting cremation vary but convenience and affordability are prime considerations.

Convenience and simplicity are key features of the direct cremation option. The affordability of direct cremation, which reduces funeral and burial expenses, is another important factor.

Direct cremation also gives grieving families time to cope with their loss. With direct cremation, families don’t need to rush to plan a funeral, giving them time for bereavement. This option also provides families the opportunity to either skip the traditional service or plan an alternative that suits them better and that is more affordable.
