Philadelphia, PA -- (ReleaseWire) -- 06/30/2017 -- McCafferty Funeral Home, a trusted Philadelphia funeral home, offers respectful options for anyone seeking cremation following the death of a loved one.
Cremation has gotten extremely popular over the course of the last few years. According to the Cremation Association of North America, the cremation rate in 1958 was a mere 3.6 percent. That number grew to an astonishing 43.5 percent by 2012. By this year, that number is expected to reach 49%
Part of the expected reason for the increase in cremation is linked to the increase in the cost of a traditional burial and funeral combination; the most common form of service. The median cost of a burial and funeral service is $8,343, while the average cost of a basic cremation and full funeral service is $4,715.
McCafferty Funeral Home also takes great lengths to work together with grieving families during a difficult time. Their planning phase prior to all services helps make the difficulty of losing a loved one just a little bit easier. McCafferty Funeral Home has built a fine reputation for being a funeral home that makes things easier for grieving families.
