When arranging a funeral for a loved one, one of the key decisions is choosing between burial and cremation. This significant choice can be influenced by various factors such as religious or spiritual beliefs, financial considerations, or ecological concerns. Understanding the details of each option is essential before making an informed decision.

San Diego Cremation

Cremation is an alternative to traditional burial, involving the process of reducing a body to ashes through high-temperature burning. This method is chosen for various reasons, including its cost-effectiveness, environmental considerations, and the flexibility it offers in memorializing loved ones. Cremated remains can be kept in urns, scattered in meaningful locations, or even incorporated into keepsakes, allowing for personalized and diverse options in honoring the deceased.

What is Cremation?

The Cremation Association of North America describes it as, “The mechanical and/or thermal or other dissolution process that reduces human remains to bone fragments”.  On our page, The Cremation Process, we offer a deeper look at the most common processes which uses extreme heat.

People choose cremation over burial of casketed remains for any combination of reasons. Sometimes it’s the simple fear of burial itself, sometimes it’s the benefits of having a more personalized service, other times it’s about being more Eco-Friendly. Regardless of the reason, you can have peace of mind in knowing we are here for you and your family. Our staff can provide several different options that fit your wants and needs. We welcome all calls for more information on how we can personalize a service.

Why Cremation?

Everyone has their own personal reasons for choosing it over traditional casketed burial.

Given the religious, ethnic, and regional diversity among us, there are many other reasons for the dramatic rise in the number of cremations performed each year.

As more Americans live far from hometowns and parents, and as family burial plots have waned in popularity and accessibility, millions have turned to cremation as a practical and cost-effective way to care for a loved one’s remains.

Cremation also allows a family the flexibility they may need in planning and preparing for a memorial service, celebration-of-life, or a scattering ceremony. While the process can occur almost immediately (once all the proper paperwork is complete), the decisions required in planning a meaningful memorial for a loved one can be made in a relaxed, rational way.

Environmental Reasons
You can also be sure that concern for the environment ranks high among many who choose cremation. Casketed and embalmed remains take up cemetery space and can pollute the ground water so cremation can be a great alternative to environmental reasons.
