More and more people are choosing to be cremated rather than buried. There are a number of reasons why this is becoming the first choice for many, but no matter what the reason, Bury St Edmunds funeral directors will have plenty of experience in organising this kind of funeral. One practical consideration behind the rise in cremations is the cost. The cost for funerals Bury St Edmunds based and elsewhere often comes from the estate of the deceased; and for many, bequeathing their money to loved ones is more important than an expensive funeral. It can cost up to fifty percent less to be cremated rather than buried, which means there is more money left to give to beneficiaries. Another reason for opting to use a Bury St Edmunds crematorium is that it is often simpler to arrange a cremation than a burial. Fewer permissions are needed, and the service itself can be less formal. This could suit your loved one perfectly. A cremation leaves more options for those left behind as well. A burial site is fixed and friends and relatives must visit the memorial wherever it is located. With a cremation, relatives can choose to take the ashes to a special place to bury or scatter them, making it much more personal. Some people also worry that a burial is bad for the environment, especially if embalming chemicals are used. Cremation in general has less environmental impact. Finally, some people simply have a personal preference for being cremated rather than buried.
