  • Calcination - Type of cremation that involves the use of extreme heat rather than flames to prepare a body, this is an alternative to flame-based cremation.

    The death of a loved one is never easy, but family members must arrange for the memorial service and burial for the deceased almost directly afterward. Since most people do not have a relationship with a mortuary prior to this situation, they must make difficult decisions in terms of dealing with the body respectfully in the midst of their grief. Many turn to cremation for this purpose, for a number of reasons that we will look at here. Cremations are usually much less expensive than the cost of a wood or metal casket and burial. There is no need to view the body or wonder about jewelry and clothing to bury with the deceased. Unlike funerals, memorial services can be scheduled at a later date to respect the needs of long distance family members who want to arrange to attend. Many also find a memorial service to be much more therapeutic than a funeral, because it celebrates the life of the deceased while allowing for grief in the death. After cremation, the ashes are released to the family from the crematorium to do as they like. While some decide to scatter the ashes in a pretty spot, others keep them in an urn in their home so they feel like the deceased are always with them. Some choose to bury the ashes in a cemetery in a similar way to the burial of a body. A cemetery can be a place to visit and arrange flowers on the grave for special occasions, which some people find helpful in dealing with their grief. Some people even use cremation for their pets so they can keep the ashes as a memento of their furry friends.
