Why Modern Funeral Arrangements Are More Popular Than the Traditional Ones

By Zoltan Zongora

The moment that everybody is afraid of eventually comes, no matter how much we dread it. A person dies and the ones the are here to stay have to deal with their grief, pain and organizing the memorial service and the funeral. Organizing the funeral is one of the most complex, difficult and cost intensive experience a family can have.

Traditional memorial services are based on a history loaded with using complete services that include chapels, viewing rooms with an embalmed body that people are viewing in an open casket. Yet modern ways to do a memorial service seem stripped off from all the extras and the there is no viewing, but rather the casket is closed used only for burial and cremation. Instead of having lots of people at the service, now the preferred method is to have only close family and friends with a secular service rather than relying heavily on religious traditions. Everything becomes simpler nowadays and as a result, cheaper.

When a traditional service is used, everything has to be paid for, regardless whether all is used or not. The most important part that influences how much you pay is the choice of the casket. These days, however, you can find customized options that include different services that don't require printing services or a full memorial program. When a funeral memorial program is used it can cost a family up to thousands of dollars and not everybody can afford that.

Here are a few differences between traditional and modern funeral arrangements:

Previously body embalming happened automatically. Now it is by choice. If the body should be embalmed, it bears an additional cost
Before, funerals were held in churches and later on in funeral chapels. Nowadays private funeral services can be held in any location chosen by the family
Obituaries with details about the deceased were printed in major newspapers, which could become quite costly depending on where they were printed. Now these are by choice and the departed person's life history doesn't need to be printed, making printing more cost effective
Burial was the main option and cremation was very expensive due to the fact that it was done only in major city centers. This meant that the body had to be transported to the cremation center. Nowadays cremation is available almost everywhere, making it the preferred option for many. This avoids having to buy a grave or monument, which can be very costly as well. Cremation also allows several family members to be buried in one location without the need to actually buy a new plot for each individual
Now people can choose between a religious or non-religious funeral, between viewing or no viewing, between a public funeral or one that has only family and friends around, and the family now can choose the service location as well

Having the freedom of so many options while at the same time leaving out the unnecessary, is much easier and more cost effective on the family of the deceased to organize a funeral, leaving them more time and space to grieve in peace.

If cremation is the method of choice to bury your loved one, you need to choose between beatiful urns for ashes that will keep the memory of your deceased alive forever. Memorable keepsake urns are perfect for storing the cremated remains in your home when the rest of the ashes are to be buried.
