Technology has indefinitely taken over the world as well as the ways things are being done now. In this day and age, almost everything has been digitalised and although it is portrayed as something that is ‘modern’ and ‘revolutionary’, it is still extremely scary to think about. Clones actually exist, as do robot dogs which can replace your pet dogs, cars that can drive themselves, ability to open the door to your house through your iPhone and even robot servants who can’t possibly go wrong with the instructions or ‘orders’ that you give to them. The world is also quickly conforming to these standards, which brings us to the question: Are cemeteries going to be a thing of the past?
They Didn’t Exist in the 18th Century
In many parts of the world including America, there were absolutely no cemeteries. In no way do we mean to imply that they didn’t bury their dead, but that there wasn’t a specific land dedicated just to the dead. Back in the day, people would die at home, have a funeral at home and be buried somewhere nearby so as to keep their memory close by. However, once the idea of cemeteries gained popularity, following that standard is certainly considered as something that’s ridiculous. But, can technology take over cemeteries as well, in this day and age? Well, there is a possibility.
Cemeteries Are Running Out of Space
In today’s age, many cemetery handlers or owners try to avoid talking about this subject, but there really is a lack of space when it comes to burying dead bodies. In fact, small cemeteries have even started to reuse the space by bulldozing graves older than 75 years and using the same spot for a new grave. In fact, for many years, this has been going on and now it’s come to a point that the graves that don’t receive a lot of visitors are abolished without regard.
Ensure Your Spot Beforehand
There’s still a lot of research that needs to be done on the subject of whether or not cemeteries are going to be taken over completely. However, if you act upon it now and for something along the lines of getting a freedom funeral insurance, you can guarantee that your funeral will take place as well as a burial in the cemetery of your choice. A lot of people have been doing so for quite some time now, and so, God forbid but if you were to die suddenly, a spot cannot be guaranteed.
Visit the Graves of Your Relatives
If you want to ensure that the graves of your relatives do not get abolished without fair warning, visiting them frequently might be a clever thing to do. You can also ensure by keeping in touch with the cemetery from time to time by calling the owner and getting updates on their progress. Once you get into the habit, it won’t be all that difficult to do.
