Americans are spending less on funerals

The results of a National Funeral Directors Association(NFDA) survey indicate that the folks are spending less on funerals. Cremation is growing at a rapid rate and costs much less than a traditional funeral. There is less money spent on flowers visitations, and expensive caskets. Spending on funerals in America has been cut.

The head of Batesville Casket Co. recently stated that this is the first time that a recession has effected the coffin makers business.  The major funeral corporations numbers are way down.

From the BBC
Americans have cut their spending on funerals considerably compared to last year, according to a survey by the National Funeral Directors Association.
The majority of undertakers surveyed said that increasing numbers of people were choosing a cheaper coffin or were opting for a cremation instead of a traditional burial…..

“For many families, it’s becoming difficult to pay for funeral services. Many people are cutting back because of the economic crisis,” said association spokesman James Olson.

Folks are making more of an effort to come in under the average cost of a funeral. most industry experts agree that the average cost of a funeral is about $10.000.00. Folks just cannot afford that amount.
