Questions

Why do people select cremation?
Cremation is simply a matter of preference and choice.  People have various reasons for selecting Cremation influenced by ethnic background or family tradition.  The concept that cremation is selected because of perceived lower funeral costs or lack of land for earth burial is totally inaccurate.  In rare instances are land a concern, and funeral costs are based on fixed expenses, and a family's selection of merchandise and services.
