Final Arrangements Information Sheet
Cremation is becoming the predominant final
arrangements choice at death in the US. Cremation is chosen each year by an ever
increasing number of people. Cremation in some sections of the country, accounts
for more than 60% of the final dispositions at death. The reasons for Cremation
are wide and varied but most often it is the high cost of funerals and a desire
for simplicity in the mourning process that account for much of the final
arrangements decisions to be cremated.
A traditional funeral now costs on average more
than $6,000. Cremation whereas, can be one fifth the cost. It is for some
families a funeral is the third most expensive item they ever purchase behind a
home and an automobile. The Final Arrangements Network has endeavored through
and planning programs to help
lower those costs but the decision between cremation and more traditional
funerals is entirely a personal and family choice.
