When a person dies, it is very difficult to decide what to do with the remains as family members are often overwhelmed with grief. However, they have to take a decision to either bury or cremate the remains. In many cultures, it is becoming more popular for family members to choose cremation over burial. The question is why should a family choose cremation.
The main reason for choosing cremation is not doubt financial. A cremation is often much cheaper than a burial. Generally, within a few hundreds a cremation can be performed, while a burial takes a few thousands. This big difference in the cost is one of the primary reasons for people to opt for cremation.
Some people want to save land as with growing population more land is required for living. If burial is chosen, it will have to be in a cemetery and it also means that more and more vacant land will be used by cemeteries rather than by those who need the space.
Cremation is highly beneficial from an environment point of view. There is less waste generated in the ground. When a family opts to bury the remains, it can be done using a bio-degradable container to ensure that everything is degraded and no trace is left behind. Also, cremation ensures that fewer trees are cut down to make coffins and caskets. Usually, when people bury the remains, they use an urn instead of a casket. A good urn hardly costs around $100 and a family can select the design and material of the urn.
