It is more than obvious that the basic economic downturn sees a spike in the lower cost of cremations. Cremations are more than growing because they are much less than the cost of the Traditional funeral.
Here is an excellent post on the lower cost cremations.
“Funeral directors in some cities nationwide are reporting a spike in cremations, which might cost around $1,000 to $1,600, versus $6,500 to $9,000 for a traditional funeral service and burial, according to numbers provided by two Utah funeral directors. Some New York funeral directors have noted a 30 percent jump in cremations, and suburban Chicago funeral homes have seen a rise, too, according to newspaper reports.”
