Today, the majority of Connecticut residents choose cremation over burial, and that number is growing every year. It’s not hard to see why. As funeral prices escalate, more and more people find they cannot afford an elaborate funeral. So they turn to The Cremation Society of New England for a dignified and reasonably priced alternative: direct cremation.
Direct cremation is becoming increasingly common throughout the United States. Since there is no embalming, visitation or service – just the cremation process itself - it offers a simpler, cheaper alternative to traditional burial or cremation. Cost is not the only factor. Many chose direct cremation because it’s more consistent with their beliefs or tastes. Others prefer to hold a memorial service weeks or months afterwards.
Whatever your reason for choosing direct cremation, the Cremation Society of New England is here to assist you in your time of need. Our cremation package, which can be customized, can be arranged and purchased online in just a few minutes, giving you maximum convenience and minimum stress. To get started, please go to our Immediate Need Page if you have just suffered a loss, or our Plan Your Own Cremation Page if you are planning ahead for your own cremation.
