When it comes to funeral arrangement options, cremations are now being preferred over regular burials. While some people opt for it because the entire process is quicker, others feel that it helps provide a more personalized and meaningful final resting place. Here are some interesting facts about cremations:

1. It’s Possible To Conduct A Burial After A Cremation

It is a common misconception that once a person has been cremated, the ashes need to be placed in some other location or in their own homes. But the fact is that it’s also possible to conduct a burial after a cremation. The ashes can be placed in an urn vault which can then be buried in a cemetery.

2. You Can Conduct A Funeral Service Post The Cremation

Even post the cremation, it’s possible to hold a memorial service. A funeral home can help you organize a memorial service where you can keep the urn with the ashes on a pedestal and have a regular ceremony.

3. A Columbarium Is A Place Where Ashes Are Stored

A columbarium is a structure that’s specially built to store the ashes of the deceased. It could be located on a church or cemetery’s property. You can store the urn with your loved one’s ashes in this structure. People can visit the place and pay their respects just like they would at a gravesite.

4. Cremations Involve The Use Of Very High Temperatures

A body can be properly cremated only when the temperature is 1400 degrees or above. Most crematoriums make use of natural gas and this helps remove the organic compounds that exist in the remains.

5. Cremation is a cost-effective option

Since a cremation doesn’t require a casket or a cemetery monument, it's cheaper than a standard burial. Even if you choose to get an urn vault and have that buried in the cemetery, it still proves to be a more cost-effective option.
