Funeral and cemetery Preneed, the advanced purchase of prepaid funerals and burial sites seems to be down in the suburbs. This is what is being reported in a collar county outside Chicago.
Less money spent on preneed or prepaid funerals means a downward trend in Funeral Cost.
People still purchase rights to burial, but not like they once did. Society’s transient nature and the economy are contributing to more cremations and fewer rights to burial purchased in advance, those involved with funerals and cemeteries said.
“It’s not like they used to years ago when a family member buys 16 graves for the whole family,” said Roger Ronzheimer, superintendent for the St. Charles Township cemeteries.
