This post is dedicated to talking a little about the cremation process and any information that can assist you in purchasing and a cremation urn.
When someone dies they may go to either a funeral home or a crematorium. If the deceased will have a wake they will be moved to the funeral home and if not they will go directly to the crematorium.
Cremations are performed in electronically controlled furnaces. Temperatures reach 1800 degrees Fahrenheit. The remains are bone fragments that have been crushed. The burning process doesn’t reduce the remains to the final consistency.
To choose an urn that will be the correct size for your loved one, find the same cubic inches of space in the urn, as the person’s weight in pounds before they died.
There are several options for the placement of your loved ones remains. They can be scattered, buried, placed in a mausoleum or even flow into space. A emerging trend is to bury the remains in biodegradable urns or have them scattered.
