Cremation vs. Traditional Funerals

Over the last decade, cremation has significantly grown in popularity. In fact, half of all deaths in America are now handled through cremation. This is because cremation offers several benefits over traditional funerals:

  • Cremation is usually more affordable than a traditional funeral, especially when comparing the cost of a casket/outer burial container to the cost of an urn.
  • Cremation allows the body to be processed right away, and the memorial service can be scheduled any time after that. Funerals must occur shortly after death so the body looks its best.
  • Cremation ashes can be spread almost anywhere, and they can be split between multiple containers for keepsakes.
  • You can still have a memorial service with cremation. The only difference between a memorial and a funeral service is the fact that you do not have a body to view in a casket, but you can have a photo slideshow to honor your lost loved one.
  • Cremation is better for the environment.
  • If you want to have the ashes buried in a family plot, you can do that through interment cremation.
  • If the deceased’s body was donated to science, the leftover remains can be processed through cremation to give the person a final resting place.

Cremation is not for everyone, but it is something to consider when comparing funerals. No matter what your wishes or plans may be, our OKC funeral home has solutions to accommodate them. Give us a call to learn more about the funeral packages available for you.

When the time comes, your family will not have to worry about your end-of-life decisions because everything is taken care of.
