What is Cremation?
Cremation involves the process of using fire or heat to transform a body into ashes. After the body is transformed into ashes, the family may scatter the ashes in a place of significance to the loved one, may place the ashes in an urn and bury the ashes in a cemetery, or place the ashes in an urn in a place of the family’s choosing. Cremation as a funeral choice goes back to the Neolithic era, and has been practiced by the Persians, the Romans, and the Hindus, and also in modern times. Today, cremation is selected for many reasons. Some families want a simple and cost-effective funeral process. Some enjoy that cremation does not require a faith-based service. Others choose cremation and incorporate faith-based traditions. For example, cremation is sometimes used in Jewishfunerals and in Catholic funerals. Others want to scatter the remains of their loved ones in a place of significance, and cremation makes this possible.
