Cremation: a popular end-of-life option

By Jim Miller, Savvy Senior | Oct 21, 2009
Dear Savvy Senior,

I am interested in learning more about cremation and would like to know what religions allow it. I understand cremation is a lot cheaper than a standard burial, but born and raised Catholic, I'm not sure the church allows it. What can you tell me?

Almost all religions accept the practice of cremation including Roman Catholics. In fact, statistics show that about one-third of all Catholics today are opting for cremation versus the traditional casket burial. Here's what you should know.
