It may be hard for someone to think that trends related to funerals can also change. But nonetheless, it is a fact. There are a variety of customs, traditions and rituals that people tend to follow before bidding a final farewell to their beloved. These traditions vary from religion to religion, even within various sects, and can also differ from region to region, depending geographically on ancestors.
From all the countries in the world, let's focus on the Australian funeral trends at the moment. One of the trends that can be clearly seen in Australia is of people preferring cremation over burial. Cremation may sound like it is followed only by Hinduism where it is compulsory for the body to be cremated, but it is being followed as an independent choice by people belonging to other customs or religions as well.
The method of cremation is also being preferred due to shortage of space, an issue that is slowly rising in Australia. But it's not only simple cremation that is trending. Personalised funerals have been trending in Australia, where people opt to personalise music as well as have unique coffins rather than just traditional ones. These unique coffins have come as a result of Aussies wishing for an environment-friendly burial. Have a look at the infographic below to learn more about funeral trends in Australia.
