Cremation

The use of cremation as part of the funeral process is steadily gaining in acceptance and usage. In western states, cremation is used more often than in the east. In countries such as India and Japan with high population density and a premium on the available land, cremation is the only choice.

It's difficult for survivors to choose cremation if the deceased has not made this choice in advance. There is something about having the body intact and in a given location that gives survivors a continuing sense of connection - a grave site to visit and a place to reflect on the wonderful memories or perhaps to speak to the deceased or offer prayers. Cemetery records are also an excellent source of information for genealogical research. However, reality often suggests or dictates a different solution.

 
The Process

After the legally required waiting time has elapsed, the remains may be cremated. The remains are enclosed in a special cremation container or casket and placed in the cremation chamber. The interior is raised to 1600-2000 degrees F. for 1 to 2 hours. The remains of the cremation process are not ashes but bone fragments. These fragments are processed into a small even consistency to facilitate inurnment or scattering.
