Numerous persons select cremation over conventional burial. Cremation has lately acquired popularity among followers of several religious traditions. They favor it since it is less difficult, cheaper costly, and less troublesome for them. People also evaluate how environmentally beneficial the disposal method is.

Concerning Cremation Facts

However, at Willowbrook Cemetery, we have seen that many individuals lack a thorough understanding of the intricacies of cremation.

Consider the following five little-known cremation facts:

  1. If you select cremation, you will not need a burial site. Some individuals opt to bury the urn holding the ashes in a cemetery, even though this is not the standard.
  2. When all family members are present, and the cremation will occur shortly after death, embalming is unnecessary.
  3. You will have the choice of dispersing the remains at sea, in the hills, or some other outdoor location after the funeral.
  4. The urn can be exhibited in a family's home as a lasting memento of the departed. Many individuals nowadays are geographically dispersed and may be unable to go to the gravesite of a dear one to offer their condolences in person. In this case, the cremated remains stay with the family, no matter where they live.
  5. The costs of a casket, a funeral ceremony, a burial spot in a cemetery, and its maintenance costs add up during a standard burial. In comparison, the cost savings above a typical burial are substantial.
