Why Choose a Cremation Funeral in Kingston or Napanee

simple cremation funeral Kingston flowersEveryone has his or her own personal reasons for choosing a cremation funeral over traditional casketed burial. In the last few years, more and more North American families have been making this choice and there are multiple reasons why this trend has developed. The simplicity and affordability of cremation in comparison to burial packages and other funeral services is certainly a large contributing factor. At our Kingston and Napanee funeral homes, we want you to know that no matter your reasons for choosing cremation, we're here to help you explore your options. When you're ready to talk about cremation, call us at (613) 634-3722 to set an appointment or simply drop by our office. You can also send us an email via our online contact form.

Cremation Costs are Only One Reason

Given the religious, ethnic, and regional diversity among us, there are many other reasons for the dramatic rise in the number of cremations performed each year. According to Tyler Mathisen of NBC, one of those reasons is "the softening of the Catholic church's views of the practice. For centuries – until 1963, in fact – the church outlawed it. The church's laws still express a preference for burial. But the outright ban is a thing of the past."  He goes on to tell readers that the decline in nuclear families is another reason. "As more Americans live far from hometowns and parents, and as family burial plots have waned in popularity and accessibility, millions have turned to cremation as a practical and cost-effective way to care for a loved one's remains."

Simple Cremation also allows a family the flexibility they may need in planning and preparing for a memorial service, cremation funeral, celebration-of-life, or a scattering ceremony. While the cremation process can occur almost immediately (once all the proper paperwork is complete), the decisions required in planning a meaningful memorial for a loved one can be made in a relaxed, rational way. You can also be sure that concern for the environment ranks high among many who choose cremation. Casketed and embalmed remains take up cemetery space and can pollute the ground water but many still question the amount of atmospheric pollution created by the cremation process.
