In Hebei Province, many business cemeteries will be locked in Beijing residents. Taking the Lingshan Pagoda Mausoleum in Hebei Province as an example, it is located in Sanhe, Hebei Province, and is connected with the eastern part of Beijing. A salesperson named Wang told reporters that more than 80% of customers in the cemetery are from Beijing. According to reports, the lowest price of the tomb at the cemetery is the 0.7-square-meter lying stone tomb, priced at 16,800 yuan, and the highest selling price of the tomb is between 60,000 and 80,000 yuan. In addition, custom high-end tomb sales services are also provided.

The popularity of the concept of "too big cities surrounding the tomb" is also reflected in the Internet. In the "quick find grave" page of "Beijing Mausoleum", there is not only the Beijing suburb area, but also the "Beijing surrounding" area with the red "H (hot sale)". The concept of "Beijing surrounding" is quite popular. .

The reporter opened this area and saw that there are 10 large and small cemeteries in the surrounding area of ​​Beijing, mainly in Hebei Province. In addition to the names and pictures of the cemetery introductions, there are also a series of labels labeled “distance from the Beijing area xx. The word "kilometer" is used as a selling point to attract buyers to click. Among the 10 cemeteries, the distance is 45 kilometers from the downtown area of ​​Beijing and the distance is 100 kilometers. Compared with the cemetery in Beijing, the cemeteries surrounding the conceptual cemetery start at a minimum price of only 3,800 yuan and the highest price does not exceed 40,000 yuan. Although the price is not cheap, the sales staff said that the surrounding cemeteries in Hebei Province are relative to the suburbs of Beijing. Very cost-effective."
China's funeral industry is rapidly innovating:
In recent years, through the “Internet+” to break the opacity of the industry, reduce the burden of funerals, introduce new technologies for the funeral industry such as life spar, 3D portrait printing, two-dimensional code tomb, etc., and promote the new trend of funerals, these new technologies and increasingly strengthened supervision Together, the means are solving the problem of mourning.

Marley, the founder of “Internet + Funeral,” said that the burial industry has not been sufficiently transparent for a long time. From the funeral service to the cemetery purchase, most of the cases are through “through-train” brokers, such as sales of cemetery, about 70%. The sales come from the channel, and only 30% of the consumers purchase directly from the cemetery.

...The reporter learned that taking "life crystal" as an example, through cutting-edge technology such as high pressure sublimation and making crystal with the ashes of the deceased, this new trend has been "landed" in places like Shanghai, Beijing and Zhejiang in recent years. In Shanghai's Pudong New Area, there is a cemetery announced that it will test the "life crystal" into the cemetery, and use new scientific and technological means to promote the conservation of the resources of the burial land.

Shanghai Daily: Free burials for ‘crystal’ ashes in Pudong
FAMILIES holding “life crystals,” which are made of ashes of the dead, can house them at the Huilongyuan Cemetery in the Pudong New Area for free, the Shanghai Funeral and Interment Service Center said.

Since March 2016, residents are being encouraged to convert the ashes into “life crystal,” which is basically particulate matter that transforms ashes into “crystals” under high temperatures.

The cemetery, the first in Shanghai to provide “life crystal” placement service, will have a 55-square-meter area for 4,000 columbaria. In total, it can accommodate 8,000 “life crystals,” with each of them occupying 0.0075 square meters.

The service will be available in the second half of this year.

“‘Life crystal’ is eco-friendly and saves land compared to traditional burial,” said Zhou Jingbo, an official with the Shanghai Civil Affairs Bureau.

A traditional tomb size is normally about 1-1.5 square meters.
