Many people choose cremation over traditional burial simply because they prefer it, and for these additional advantages:
Cost savings: On average, cremations can save a family thousands of dollars over a full size ground burial. Hillcrest offers many affordable cremation package options.
Greater flexibility: Getting an extended family together for a traditional funeral service can be a challenge. Many families opt for cremation at time of death, then take the time to plan a fitting memorial service at a later date.
More sustainable: There’s no question that cremation saves land space and has a smaller impact on the limited land available for burial space.
