Cremation Meaning


Many Are Trying Funeral Cremating 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.

Disposition by fire brings horrible connotations to some. However, the embalming procedure also has unpleasant implications. It seems to be a matter of personal opinion as to which is preferable.

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.

There is also the option of burying the cremains, which is the term for the cremated remains, in a cemetery plot. Another option is to keep the ashes in a funerary urn. Ashes may also be scattered over water or at a location selected by the deceased 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.

The option of a Funeral Cremation can maintain peace among all family members. Afterwards, burial in the family cemetery plot is one possibility. The ashes may also be scattered or kept in an urn by one or more of those who loved the deceased individual.
