The cremation funeral service has been a part of the human experience for thousands of years; in fact, archeologists tell us the history of cremation began some 20,000 years ago, along the shores of Lake Mungo, in Australia. The popularity of cremation in locations around the world has waxed and waned over the centuries; growing in popularity during some centuries, then discarded as a commonplace practice; only to have interest renewed. Commonly this was due to the imposition of religious or social doctrine by conquering peoples; or in some cases, by governmental decree (as in modern China, where cremation has been made mandatory in most regions).
Today, the rise in the popularity of direct cremation throughout North America continues to climb. Often motivated by funeral costs or environmental awareness; more families each year are choosing cremation when making funeral arrangements
