If you have given thought to your end-of-life arrangements, you may have considered the idea of cremation. Cremation is an option more and more people are electing over traditional burial.
While the concept of cremation has been around for centuries, it was not always as widely accepted as it is today. Over time, many of the traditional objections to cremation have been reconsidered. For example, in 1963 the Roman Catholic Church lifted its ban on cremation.
In addition to the objections subsiding, cremation is becoming a more desirable option as our society has changes. A growing awareness of sustainability and other green concerns has led many people to choose cremation as a more environmentally responsible choice. Another societal factor that has changed is the fact that families are less tied to one geographic region. A more mobile society has led to families branching off into other locations, as well as retirees opting for relocation to more favorable climates. Cremation offers more freedom and flexibility for the memorializing of a loved one than a traditional burial plot.
