As some people struggle to make ends meet in life the same seems to be happening in death. A new report shows that more people are choosing the less expensive option of cremation instead of a traditional burial. Burying your loved ones can easily cost $10,000 or more. However choosing cremation can be a much cheaper choice, ranging from $4,000-$6,000 dollars. Current economic conditions are forcing many to choose the latter.
