However, if you just want to have things in place and you don’t really want to spend a lot of time on it, cremation is the easier method to plan.

You can plan as much as you want beyond the cremation portion of the service, but the cremation portion is all you really have to have. There aren’t as many things to pick out and decide upon, which could make it easier on you to plan overall.

Those who plan their services in advance sometimes like to also pay in advance, which is another benefit for both them and their family. Paying in advance means you get today’s prices, which are going to be lower than whatever they might be in the future.
