Frequently Asked Questions about Cremation in Newburgh
Why Cremation Has Become a Popular Choice
People are choosing cremation over traditional funerals for different reasons:
- Cremations are flexible in that you have the option of whether or not you want any type of remembrance ceremony (e.g. a funeral or visitation) beforehand. Having a service before the cremation allows family to say goodbye to the body of their loved one. With a memorial service held after the cremation, you can choose to have it any time.
- Cremations are typically less expensive than traditional funerals (we’ll cover costs in a moment) because there is often no need for a traditional casket, preparation of the remains, a cemetery plot or headstone.
- Cremains are portable. If you move, your loved one’s ashes move with you. It’s difficult for some people to have to move away from city or town where the grave of a loved one is located.
- Cremations are considered an environmentally friendly option. At some point in the future, we may simply run out of land to bury our dead. China is currently facing a similar problem. The country has only 3,000 cemeteries (compared to the U.S.’s 50,000) and those burial plots are quickly filling up. According to Want China Times, experts are predicting the country will run out of allocated burial land within six years. To try and remedy the situation, the government offers incentives to have citizens choose cremation over burial.
