According to a New York Times article, cremations are booming in tough times as a way to save money.
All but taboo in the United States 50 years ago, cremation is now chosen over burial in 41 percent of American deaths, up from 15 percent in 1985, according to the Cremation Association of North America. Economics is clearly one of the factors driving that change.
The percentage of bodies that are cremated has risen steadily for years, for reasons ranging from spiritual to environmental. But a recent study shows that the increase has accelerated during the downturn, and many funeral home directors say they believe the economy is leading people to look for less expensive options.
MY PERSONAL EXPERIENCE WITH CREMATION…
I was devastated when my grandmother died two years ago. I have never felt emotional pain that great. Being born and raised in the southeastern United States, it is typical to take a traditional approach to matters pertaining death. Although embalming and burial are currently the top options, cremation is on the rise with over 30% of North Carolina residents choosing this method to memorialize their loved ones. As a family, however, we went against the grain and chose cremation as the way to remember my grandmother. Acquaintances of the family questioned our choise as if we had doomed my grandmother to hell for our decision. It was hard enough dealing with the death and being strong and supportive for my family, but to have to answer these illogical questions was beyond mind-boggling. Aren't people supposed to be supportive during times like these?
