3 Things to Know About Cremation

You may already know that cremation is a popular choice for individuals who are preparing for their own final arrangements. Cremation is the process of burning a deceased body, leaving behind the ashes for grieving friends and family members. The ashes can be spread at a gravesite or kept in a special urn at home. 

At Baldwin Brothers Funeral & Cremation Society in Florida, we offer a range of cremation options for you and your loved ones. Each of our services is designed to create a unique experience that celebrates the life of the individual who has passed. Learn more about our cremation services by reaching out to one of our team members today or by exploring our website in the comfort of your own home. 

  1. Cremation is more environmentally-friendly

Did you know that traditional burials are responsible for the use of nonbiodegradable materials as caskets as well as embalming fluid? Many of these options are not healthy for the environment. Cremation, however, offers greener solutions. No harmful chemicals are required in the process, and caskets are not needed. Cremation also comes with the option of biodegradable urns that will dissolve in the water or in the earth. To learn more about our environmentally-friendly options, ask the professionals at Baldwin Brothers Cremation. 

  1. Cremation saves money

A traditional burial can be a costly affair for families making final arrangements. This is because burial costs include the expense of embalming the body, the cost of a casket, transportation to the gravesite, then burial. There is also the cost of the burial plot and marking the grave with a headstone. Cremation is a simple and affordable option for individuals recovering from an economic recession or those who live on a fixed income. At Baldwin Brothers Cremation and Funeral Homes, our company is locally owned and operated. This means we are not affiliated with large enterprises or corporations. 

  1. Cremation offers more room for personalization

Cremation urns do not have to be the traditional vase-type urns people have often seen in television shows or movies. There are many options for customization available at Baldwin Brothers Cremation. Urns come in a range of styles and materials, or the urns can be included in a piece of custom artwork or jewelry. For families who don’t prefer urns, the ashes can be scattered in a memorable location or at the home of the deceased. When it comes to paying tribute to a loved one, the possibilities are endless.
