What Are The Reasons For Which Cremation Is Better Than Burial?


When someone you love dearly leaves your company, it becomes hard to deal with things. But unfortunately, after the death of a close person, people don’t just get the liberty to break down and to dwell in misery. This is because, before that, certain responsibilities need to be fulfilled. A funeral has to be organized and goodbyes need to be said.

But to organize a funeral, some decisions are to be made first. Apart from decisions regarding the people who need to be informed, and the destination where the funeral has to be held, one more crucial choice regarding what you want to do with the body also needs to be made. It has to be decided whether you want to cremate the remains or you want to opt for a burial process. This is an important decision.

According to the reports, in the U.S. there has been reported an increase in the favor for the cremation services over the burial process for the 4th consecutive year. According to the forecast, by 2040, the U.S. cremation rate is expected to be 78% while the burial rate is expected to drop by 16%. Now if you are wondering about the reasons for this likeness, then here is a list that might interest you. Here it goes!


  • Religious acceptance


  • Cremation was not always an accepted practice. During the 19th century, the religious institutions condemned cremation. But now, the times have changed. This is so because, in 2016, the Vatican city gave acceptance to the process of cremation and offered standards to follow. Since then, the countries around the world have recorded an increase in likeness for cremation practices.


  • Cost differences


  • In recent years, the crematories and funeral homes have decreased the costs of arranging cremation services in NJ. Some facilities now provide a simple cremation option that has a disposition method which is conducted before or after the process without a formal service and is cheap. Apart from this, partial or full cremations also cost low. Thus, as a result of the decreased costs too, people have started favoring cremation over burial processes.


  • Memorializing options


  • By opting for cremation, people are also offered varied options for memorializing the dead. One can store the ashes in an urn, choose to scatter them, plant them in the garden, or wear them in the form of a necklace. The choices are endless. This is yet another important reason why cremation services in NJ are favored over the burial services.

    So, if you too decide to opt for cremation services, and need the services of a funeral home, then contact us at Bergen Funeral Service, Inc. We will be happy to help you!

    Shipping Cremated Remains

    Are you looking for Shipping Cremated Remains in NJ? Bergen Funeral Service Inc. offers Shipping Cremated Remains in NJ as a way to reconnect families during this difficult time. As an all-faiths funeral company with extensive experience in funeral customs, ceremonies, memorials and religious prayers, we can help you not only reunite families, but also perform burial rites specific to your religion or culture.


    Shipping Cremated Remains


    Death of a loved one can be hard to deal with. This scenario becomes even more complicated when the loved one who has left you has taken his last breath in another country. What should you do then? Well, most of you will opt for arranging for the dead body to get shipped, right? But what if for some reason that is not possible? 
     
    Well, if such is the case then you will be glad to know that you have another option too. You can cremate the dead body in another country and arrange for the cremated remains to get shipped. Also, shipping the cremated remains is helpful when the person who has left, has wished for his ashes to be scattered somewhere else. 
     
    But now the question is how are the cremated remains shipped? How does this process unfold? Well, worry not because at Bergen Funeral Service we can help you in figuring this out. So, here is how it goes! 

    How to ship the cremated remains?


    Now while shipping the remains, the first thing that one has got to consider is, whether you need to ship the cremated remains domestically or internationally. Answering this query is important because it will help you in deciding the carrier through which the cremated remains will be sent. So, if you are shipping domestically then the Priority Mail Express services can be used, while if you are sending the remains internationally then you might want to opt for the first class package international service. 
     
    After the service is chosen, the packaging is the next step. While shipping cremated remains the ashes must be packaged carefully, according to the guidelines of the shipping service. This way you can avoid some trouble. Generally, the shipping services ask the customers to pack the remains in two boxes with lots of padding to ensure that the urn won’t break. Now the right funeral service can assist you in this task by choosing the perfect urn for you which will be strong and sift proof to avoid any possible damage. 
     
    Next, after packaging, the funeral service takes care of the documentation process for shipping cremated remains. For that, they generally ask for copies of the death certificate, cremation certificate, and non-contraband affidavit. After getting the name, address, and contact number of the funeral home that will be receiving the remains, the ashes are shipped. Now in case, any concerns arise, then with the right funeral service by your side, you won’t have to care about a thing!
