Why is cremation becoming more popular today?

The cremation rate is rising due to several social, demographic, economic, and religious factors.

  1. People travel around and relocate much more than they did just a generation or two ago. Ties to
    tradition are not as strong as they once were. The long-standing tradition of the family plot in the local cemetery no longer holds the same significance that it once did.
  2. Cremation is significantly less expensive than a traditional burial and funeral.
  3. Cremation has become an acceptable alternative to burial from both a popular and religious viewpoint.
  4. Cremation offers portability and greater flexibility in memorialization services in a way that
    traditional burial cannot match.
