What is Cremation?

Cremation is a process that reduces human remains to bone fragments. While traditional burial is still the most popular type of funeral, cremation is becoming more popular. For those that do not like the idea of a traditional burial, cremation simplifies the burial process, is environmentally friendly and is more economical. Cremated remains are then placed in an urn and then either scattered, buried or kept.

Scattering of cremated remains can be very meaningful to both the deceased as well as those close to the person.  Cremated remains can be simply poured or scattered on land or sea. Perhaps there is a place of great meaning that might be suitable, if permitted by local laws. Popular places for scattering remains include lakes, rivers and mountain areas.

Depending on your service and disposition preferences, the selection of a cremation casket, urn, urn vault and memorialization items may become necessary. We can help you with that process as required.
