In the event of the unexpected death of a loved one, many decisions need to be made, often within a brief period of time. With so much information to process, this can feel overwhelming in addition to the emotions you’re dealing with related to death. You want to be certain to make the best decisions so you can give yourself the space to grieve the loss of someone special in your life.
Opal Cremation offers affordable cremation services and compassionate staff to help guide you through what can be an incredibly challenging time. There are many considerations people take into account when choosing cremation over burial for their loved ones.
Cremation is More Economical
Nationwide, cremation services typically cost less than burial planning. Cremation services in Orange County, CA cost less than half of traditional burial arrangements. The cost difference makes sense considering that when you make cremation arrangements, you effectively eliminate burial expenses and factors such as burial sites, headstones, caskets, and hearse transportation. In addition, for families who do not reside in the same state or city as the deceased, the ability to transfer an urn with ashes is much more affordable than transporting the deceased’s body. Also, cremation can be beneficial for the deceased who wished to have their final resting place overseas or outside of the United States.
