Greene County Direct Cremations
Approximately one million people pass away in the U.S. each year, and 40% of families who lose a loved one are choosing cremation as a final disposition for their loved one. Cremation is rising in popularity for a number of reasons. Cremation cost is generally lower than traditional burial, which requires fees for embalming, as well as the purchase of a casket and vault. As more people travel and relocate, maintaining family burial plots has become a challenge. Cremation is simply a more practical alternative to leaving the gravesite of a loved one behind.
Cremation is also considered a much more environmentally friendly option than traditional burial. More conscious than ever about concerns for the ecosystem, Americans appreciate that cremation allows for fewer resources to be used, and this leaves more green space available for the future. Cremation also offers greater flexibility in memorialization services. Some families may wish to choose direct cremation, where cremation is performed immediately, and hold services weeks later. This allows out-of-state or even out-of-country family and friends a chance to participate in the services. Families can choose a traditional funeral service prior to cremation, a celebration of life ceremony, or whatever is unique and special to them.
Cremation leaves open any number of options for remembering a loved one. All cremations are performed individually with carefully controlled processes that ensure proper identification of remains, with the greatest of respect for the departed, and they are usually completed in under three hours.
