If you are researching options for cremation services in the Yakima, WA area, you might find it helpful to know that cremation services are increasingly chosen for a variety of reasons. Not only can cremation cost thousands less than a traditional funeral with burial, but cremation is also more popular than ever for other reasons, too.
Timing & Flexibility
Cremation can be done quickly and then if you need time to make arrangements for a funeral or celebration of life event to remember a loved one, there is much more time — cremated remains can be kept indefinitely before you have a funeral, scattering ceremony, or have the cremains interred.
Families Relocating to or from Yakima
Burial was much more popular when families stayed within several miles of where they were born. Nowadays, people move out of the city or out of the state and for many, it’s just not as practical to have a loved one buried at a cemetery. Many opt for a cremation urn that can be kept with them, should they move, or alternatively people may prefer to scatter their loved one’s cremated remains at a favorite place.
For many, cremation is a greener alternative versus traditional burial and cremation services can be tailored to your needs, going as far as a green-urn or having cremains mixed to be planted with a tree seedling or wildflowers.
