The number of funeral homes that promote cremation services in Boston as a viable option is on the rise. One of the biggest reasons for this is the simple fact that we are running out of land for cemetery space. More people have chosen cremation as their option. As a matter of fact, nearly 60% of the people in this country prefer cremation over burial. It is predicted that by 2017, per the Cremation Association of North American, that cremation will be the overall choice over and above burials.
Transportation of Remains
While there are still the benefits of flexibility for how remains can be stored, another huge benefit is in transportation. For a great number of people who have relocated to the United States, there can be a wish of their family to bring them home for burial. Yes, a body can be sent, but it involves a far more complex process. Ashes weigh a great deal less and easily transported, so long as they have been placed into a propped container.
Even if you embalm a body, there is a time limit on how long you can wait to hold services. Since bodies who are being cremated do not need to be embalmed and the ashes are all that is left, you can hold a service whenever you want, even years later. If the weather is bad and there are family members who cannot travel to get there now, you can simply wait until everyone can come together. When all is said, and done, people want to have more control over their final decisions. Cremation offers flexibility when it comes to transportation, lower costs, and creative control.
