Cremation is a reduction of the body to ash and bone by the use of heat. We will be glad to provide any details of the process and procedures we use to ensure the deceased is treated with respect.
Almost all modern faiths accept cremation now. Exceptions are the Orthodox Jewish, Islamic, Eastern Orthodox, Greek Orthodox, and some Fundamental Christian faiths. We encourage you to consult with your religious adviser regarding your plans for disposition.
Cremated remains may be buried, scattered on private property or at sea, kept by a family member, or even incorporated in an artificial reef.
No, the cremated remains will be returned in a temporary container, which is included with all of our cremations. An urn may be desired for a ceremony or permanent display. Cemeteries and mausoleums have their own rules on what types of containers are accepted and we can help you determine what will meet the requirements if you will be using a cemetery.
