The popularity of a Houston cremation for final needs continues to rise. This funeral trend is attributed to cremation’s:
- Low cost
- Environmental friendliness.
Many compare the cost of cremation to the cost of a funeral, and cremation is certainly more affordable at 1/4 to 1/3 the average funeral cost in Houston. However, that’s really like comparing apples to oranges. One can have a funeral and still choose a Houston cremation for disposition of remains. The closer comparison is the cost of cremation and the cost of burial as both involve permanent disposition of remains. On average, a Houston cremation costs just one-fourth the cost of burial.
The process of cremation in Houston is easy and straightforward. With a single phone call, cremation arrangements can be made. Neptune Society Houston collects the deceased, works with the family to complete death paperwork, and completes the cremation. Following cremation, the cremated remains are returned to the family in the manner most convenient for them. Relative to other options, cremation is both simple and easy.
A Houston cremation is a green alternative to burial. Burial requires materials for a casket and burial vault in addition to labor for burial. Cemeteries also require labor for long-term maintenance of the property. More importantly, burial requires perpetual land use. Cremation, alternatively, does not require eternal land use, chronic maintenance, or burial materials. Even when a cremation burial is chosen, or interment in a columbarium, the resources and land utilized are far less than with full body burial.
