Economic Recession Hits Funeral Homes

When families start to struggle with their finances, funerals are one place that they are willing to cut costs. Funeral directors have been learning this over the past year, according to a CNN article. Cremations are on the rise, saving an average of $4,000 to $5,000 dollars on the total funeral, which cuts the price in half. Typically, funeral homes make their money by preserving bodies for funerals, selling expensive caskets and upgrading headstones and funeral service packages, but in difficult financial situations families are forgoing many of those expenses and opting for more basic funerals.
