Direct Cremation Planning

Direct Cremation Services

Cremation services are affordable and easier to plan for than traditional funeral services. Cremation has grown in popularity over the past few decades, and in the U.S., as of 2016, cremation rates are now over 50%. Why do people choose to plan their cremations?

Cremation services are:

  • a modern alternative to tradition
  • easier to plan in advance
  • more affordable than funerals
  • portable coverage wherever you move or travel*

Planning a funeral in advance can dramatically simplify the end-of-life transition families must face. Preplanned cremation services require fewer decisions and are less costly than funeral services, freeing loved ones from unnecessary burdens. Preplanning a cremation service is a graceful gift to the family, helping everyone involved.

Taking care of these unavoidable details now is much easier than after someone passes.

For a family grieving the loss of a loved one, the passing of a loved one is not just emotionally complicated, it is work. The amount of information that needs to be collected and provided, the number of decisions that need to be made within a short amount of time, and the financial responsibility faced at this delicate moment can be overwhelming – but it can be avoided.
