Cremation


Many Are Trying Cremation Over Traditional Burial

Traditional burial customs have been undergoing some changes over time. Many people now select a Funeral Cremation. It can be performed before or after a memorial service is held. The primary reason for this preference is that the cost is less.

Some people react negatively to this manner of disposal. But, the process of embalming a body is also an unpleasant proposition. It is now a matter of preference as to which disposition is chosen.

The first consideration after a death is who to select as the funeral director for final arrangements. The remains being treated in a respectful manner is most important, whether the body is embalmed or cremated. A memorial service can be arranged to follow either process.

In many cases, the cremains, which means the cremated remains, are buried with other family members in a cemetery. Alternatively, ashes are kept in a funerary urn. Ashes can also be scattered over water or land as the deceased requested prior to death.

Depending on the wishes of the family, a church service, memorial service at the funeral home and a graveside service can still be held. In some cultures, the family will want to be present during the actual cremation. This can be accommodated in most cases.

Many cemeteries build and maintain a columbarium. This is an indoor or outdoor structure that has spaces in which to place the cremains. A plaque identifies the decedent interred within.

In addition to the option to scatter the cremains, they can be kept in an urn. For a family with more than one person wanting to keep the ashes, there are smaller urns that can each hold a portion. This satisfies everyone and avoids disagreement at the time of bereavement.

Many times, disagreements among family members can be avoided by Funeral Cremation and the use of multiple urns. After the process is completed, a memorial service and scattering or burial of the ashes can be held. If burial is chosen, the deceased will be placed in the family plot with those who preceded him in death.
