Why Choose Cremation

When most people think of cremation, they think it is one decision. But there are many options to cremation, including many who choose to bury the cremated remains. They can, of course, be scattered. They can be set adrift at sea. They can even be placed in a mausoleum. Another option is permanent possession, where ashes are kept by a loved one. The options are virtually endless.

How Cremation Works

Cremation is a process of changing a deceased person to ash and particles via heat. While traditional burial is still the most popular type of funeral in America, cremation is becoming more popular. Cremated remains are placed in an urn and then are either scattered, buried or kept in a home or office.
