The Cremation Association of North America supports its members in providing the best service to those seeking cremation. There are numerous reasons why people choose cremation, and the decision is a very personal one. Whether you are a family member choosing cremation as a loving and respectful way to memorialize your loved one, or you are planning your own arrangements to alleviate the burden on your family, research has shown the following nine factors as considerations in the cremation decision:
People are dying older and choosing cremation for themselves.
Migration to retirement locations is increasing.
Cremation has become acceptable.
Environmental considerations are becoming more important.
Level of education is rising.
Ties to tradition are becoming weaker.
Regional differences are diminishing.
Religious restrictions are diminishing.
Greater flexibility in memorialization services.
CANA does not believe that cremation is final disposition. It is preparation for memorialization. Cremation offers a way to memorialize a loved one in a context that is meaningful to the loved one and to the survivors.
Harleigh offers lawn crypts, bench estates, semi private mausoleums, family rooms, in ground burials and cremation services and niches.
