Learn About Cremation
Since the 1980’s, the number of U.S. residents choosing cremation has been on the way up, and all signs point to a continuing rise. That the number of people choosing cremation has been on the rise for three decades is not debated. This is a countrywide trend with every geographic region seeing an increase in the cremation rate.
Specialty cremation urns provide families with unique ways to express their grief and honor their lost loved ones. Whether a family wants to honor their lost loved one’s personality, sports prowess, career, hobbies, or military service – or just wants a beautiful urn to express their love for the deceased – there is a specialty urn option for everyone.
Handling funeral and cremation arrangements is a stressful process for families. Grieving family members must make important decisions with permanent consequences when the deceased has not already made arrangements. Even when the process goes smoothly, it is stressful for the bereaved, but, if there are delays, the funeral process can become a nightmare. Understanding frequent causes of delays in the cremation process helps families avoid these common issues, and helps the cremation process proceed smoothly – reducing stress at a time when family members are already burdened with grief.
There are a number of factors to consider when choosing between cremation and burial: cost, environmental impacts, beliefs, and family wishes are just a few. Learn why you might want to choose cremation.
When an individual or family chooses cremation, one of the first questions that follows is what to do with the remains. Some choose cremation urns or keepsake urns to hold and display the remains. Others start with urns for cremation, and then build memorials around them such as a memorial bench in a beautiful garden or cemetery. Alternately, funeral urns may be skipped entirely in favor of alternate memorial keepsakes including cremation jewelry or pottery.
What is a crematory? At its core, a crematory is a facility where remains are reduced to ashes. However, a crematory can be much more than that. A crematory may include a chapel, a viewing chamber, facilities where families can hold traditional funerals, and may be located at a cemetery or facility where the ashes can be interred.
