Cremation Options

There are many different types of cremation, each with its own pros and cons.
The cremation process is one of the most common forms of disposition for a body. It consists of burning the remains at high heat and reducing them to ashes.

What is cremation like?

Cremation is a process that uses intense heat to turn the remains of your loved ones into ashes. This takes place in a specially designed furnace called a retort or chamber. It can be difficult for some people because they may have strong feelings about death but funeral directors say there are ways of making this easier by turning our ceremony into an event with singing and laughter as well as telling stories before we go ahead with the fire ritual itself.

How is a body cremated?

The process of cremation begins with the body being prepared for transport. The container in which it is placed will be moved to a retort or chamber where all that remains after cremation are metal and ash, both removed from the site. Grinding these into fine particles creates what we know as “ash”- so urns provided by family can be used now!

What is the cheapest way of cremation?

The cheapest way to be cremated is direct cremation. The process involves little more than your body being brought into a facility where they will place you in an electric oven and reduce it down to ashes until there's nothing left of the person who died--no casket, no funeral service, or transportation costs necessary thanks to this option!
