You may know that cremation services in Cumru Township, PA are more popular now than ever before. They are being used in about half of the cases and researchers believe that someday, they will take over and become more popular than a traditional funeral and burial, being used the majority of the time. While there are a lot of obvious benefits of cremation, like the lower costs and the flexible timelines, there are unique benefits that not everyone recognizes right away. Here are a few to consider if you are planning for yourself in advance, or have to make plans for a loved one’s final services.
Resting Place Options
Many people think about the flexible memorial service options right away in relation to cremation, but the idea that there are final resting place options, too, comes to them later. You don’t have to make resting place choices right away, which is another benefit of cremation. Your loved one can be placed in the urn of your choice and you can take as long as you want to decide where their final resting place should be. Then, you can scatter them in a park, around a family home, or bury them under a tree, in the cemetery, or do any number of other things. The options are nearly endless and you will want to consider many of them until you find the right choice.
You might not realize just how portable your loved one will be with cremation until you think deeper about the options. If you want to take your loved one to another location for a service, perhaps the town where they grew up, it’s easy to do after cremation. If you want to keep your loved one in your home, and then you have to move to another city, they are portable and can go with you with ease. Portability can make a big difference in your plans as you look into memorial services and even final resting places.
Different Memorial Services For Different Family Members
Your family might not all be able to gather for one memorial service. They might not even all want to do the same type of service. And with cremation, anything is possible. It’s not really possible to give someone too much honor. So if one family wants to honor your loved one by going fishing while another family wants to have a traditional memorial service, doing both is just fine. The options are open with cremation.
Loved One Can Remain With You
Cremation is the only option that makes it possible to keep your loved one’s remains. You can keep them in an urn, a hollowed out book, a cremation jewelry piece, a mini-urn behind a picture frame, or in many other honoring ways.
If you are considering cremation services in Cumru Township, PA for yourself or a loved one who passed away, it’s good to know the main benefits as well as those that are more unique and the professionals at Bean Funeral Homes & Cremation Services, Inc. can share them all with you.
