The funeral service industry has been evolving and changing rapidly in recent years. Cremation rates are rising, and traditional burial services are becoming less common. Here are some of the latest trends in funeral and memorial services.
A growing number of people are choosing to forgo traditional funeral services altogether. This could be for financial reasons or because they prefer a more low-key send-off. Many options are available if you are considering alternatives to conventional services.
One trend becoming increasingly popular is holding memorial services in nontraditional locations. This could be anything from a favorite restaurant or bar to a more natural setting like a park or beach. The key is finding a place significant to the deceased and their loved ones. This helps to make the service more personal and meaningful.
Another trend is the use of technology in funeral services. Many families are now opting to live stream the service so those who cannot attend can still participate. Services can also be recorded and made available online for people to watch at their convenience.
A third option is a direct cremation. With this service, the body is cremated without a viewing or funeral service. The ashes can then be scattered or kept by the family in an urn.
Some people opt for a memorial service without the body present. This could take place at a later date or even online. This service can still be very personal and meaningful, even without the body.
