Losing a loved one can be a difficult time in our lives. How we choose to bury them will differ between people. Some people want to go with cremating their loved ones so they can spread their ashes. Lots of people have a wish to have their ashes released at a certain location like the beach or the Grand Canyon.
Or maybe it is you who to be cremated when you pass away and have someone release your ashes. There is also the religious aspect of it. Some religions prefer cremation over caskets. No matter the reason, it’s important to know the process of cremation so you can decide if you want to go through with this or not.
The process of cremation
To begin, the body is placed into a cremation furnace. While it is in there, the mass amount of heat will make the body evaporate and create ashes. Once the ashes are made, they are placed into a container called cremation urns. A lot of people don’t know this but the ashes are bone fragments.
You can also choose urns with different designs to make it a little more personal. Aaron Cremation is a place I like to use because they offer a variety of urn designs for you to choose from.
The process doesn’t take long. It usually lasts for only a couple of hours. How much ashes you get is an option as well. You can get up to 5 pounds of ashes or sometimes up to 9 pounds of ashes.
Now that you have an idea of how cremation works, let me tell you some of the benefits of cremation and why you should consider it over regular casket funerals.
How cremation can be beneficial
The best thing about cremation is that it’s more personal. You get to keep a part of your family with you. It’s also much cheaper to do cremation rather than a regular casket funeral. At Aaron Cremation the price of cremation is $695. Open casket funerals are much more expensive. They can easily cost thousands of dollars.
We all want to do what’s best for our family, but sometimes funerals can be too expensive. It can be tough to not be able to get everything you want for your loved one, but sometimes we have to think of ourselves. But with cremation, you don’t have to worry about that because it’s much more affordable.
