Learning All About Funeral Arrangement Options

Hi everyone, my name is AnaMae Merton. I recently lost my birth parents during a heavy storm. Their deaths left me reeling, though we were not very close. Furthermore, I was the only surviving kin, so it was my job to arrange the funerals for both of them. The funeral arrangement process was incredibly difficult without knowing much about their personalities or passions. I struggled to find the best songs, outfits, caskets, burial sites and flowers. Luckily, the funeral director helped me identify suitable options for my birth parents' funerals. I hope to help people understand all of the different funeral arrangement options available today. Please visit my site anytime to learn more.

Want to Plan Your Funeral But Worried About Money? Cremation May Be the Final Solution

Christine Fleming

If you are trying to decide what you want to happen with your body after you die, so that the people that you are leaving won't have to make decisions for you, make sure you take the time to explore all options. For many, finances are the main concern when going through the details of a burial and other things. If you want to save the most money so you can leave more money behind, cremation could be your best option. Here are some of the things that you want to be aware of if you are thinking about cremation.

Save Money

Getting cremated is a great way for you to save money if final expenses are a great concern for you. You will save money for these reasons:

  • No headstone, casket or vault
  • Embalming is laborious and costly
  • A viewing is extra funeral time unneeded

If you know that you want to do everything on a budget and at as low a cost as possible, this will be the best final arrangement option for you. You will just have to decide if you want your remains in an urn for someone to keep, or if you want to be left alone.

Preserve the Planet

The country is running out of places to put cemeteries and bodies. If you want to preserve the property on the planet, and you don't want to stick a casket and cement vault under the ground -- which can potentially cause a variety of planet damaging problems -- then cremation is the best choice for you.

Minimize Choices

A lot of people get anxiety when choosing things for their funerals, like what they want to be dressed in or what type of casket they want. If you don't want to waste all the time worrying or have someone else worry about what to pick out for you, cremation works in your favor.

If you don't have a will, it may be time to get one, or you may want to make arrangements with a local funeral home in advance so they have in writing what you want before you get there. You don't want the wrong decision to be made, and you don't want to go to the wrong funeral home. Get a contract or make an agreement, and then let the people who are close to you know that you have already decided and planned for your final wishes.
