If a death is expected or unexpected, the wishes of the deceased loved one may be to be cremated. Cremation is being chosen more frequently due to the cost of a traditional funeral and burial plot purchase. In addition, many individuals are environmentally conscious about the process of embalming a deceased individual. Some individuals want to have their ashes placed in their favorite spot instead of a cemetery or mausoleum for eternity. Cremation Services In Milford OH offer a memorable and honorable cremation service that is affordable for a deceased loved one.
What is cremation? Cremation is a process that reduces a body to ashes normally between two and three hours using high heat and flame. Cremation is usually performed three to five business days after an individual has passed away and all of the paperwork is completed. At the end of the cremation process, small bone fragments are reduced and placed into a temporary or permanent urn. Just because an individual is cremated doesn’t mean the family can’t have a memorial service or burial like a traditional funeral. A casket doesn’t have to be purchased for cremation, but a combustible container should be. If the family will be retaining the ashes, they should purchase an urn that they can be placed in.
