6 Reasons to Choose Cremation September 20, 2017

These days, more and more people are deciding that they would prefer to be cremated. In fact, in Washington State, more people are now cremated rather than buried. There are a number of reasons to choose cremation. Here’s a look at six of them.


Cremation tends to cost some 40-50% less than burial. Urns, on average, are significantly cheaper than caskets. In addition to that, with cremation, the costly embalming process can be skipped.

Remains in Multiple Places

With cremation, the deceased’s remains can be kept close by more than one member of the family. Also, if a person has more than one cherished place in the world, the remains can be scattered between them.

Allow Extra Time for Planning Service

Especially if a loved one has passed suddenly, cremation can be a great choice because it will permit loved one’s to have the time necessary to plan the service, even if it’s several months down the road.

Body Being Donated to Science

For those who are passionate about the advancement of science and medical treatments, cremation is a great option because once the body has been used by researchers, it can then be cremated.

Environmental Issues

Cremation doesn’t require the harsh chemical treatments that often go along with traditional burial. Also there are not the space and resource requirements that are necessary to maintaining a grave and keeping the grounds maintained.

Turned into Jewelry

Ashes are often converted into jeweled, wearable keepsakes, allowing survivors to always keep their loved one close to their heart.
