Crematory Urns


Choosing Cremation May Be A Future Trend

While full memorial and burial customs have been the norm for centuries, the trend is now moving in the direction of Funeral Cremation, with or without a memorial service. There are a variety of reasons for this movement. A primary reason given is cost.

The idea is horrifying to some and it is even against some religions. However, the process of embalming is also fraught with unpleasant implications. It depends on the personal preferences of each family.

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 fact, the cremains, as the cremated remains are referred to, can be buried in a cemetery. The ashes may also be retained in a funerary urn. The family of the departed can also scatter the ashes in a place chosen by the decedent.

The same services can be arranged to follow the cremating procedure. There are some religions and some cultures that require family members to witness the actual cremation. Most directors can arrange for this attendance.

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.

Alternatively, the ashes can be placed in an urn. If there are multiple family members, smaller urns can be purchased to each hold a portion of the cremains. In this way, all who want to keep a part of the loved one can have their wishes accommodated.

Funeral Cremation is one option that can resolve disagreements. It allows for any type of memorial service and burial of the ashes is also a possible choice. Burial will allow the deceased to join other members in the family plot.
