Today, the majority of Pennsylvania residents choose cremation over burial, and that number is growing every year. As funeral prices escalate, some families find they don't care for a funeral at a funeral home or wish for something simpler. Those families turn to The Cremation Society of Berks County, Inc. 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, viewing 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, our Pennsylvania cremation society 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 Contact Us Page if you have just suffered a loss, or our Pre-Arrangements Page if you are planning ahead for your own cremation.
