What is cremation

This burial alternative involves the disposition of the dead through burning. The body is reduced to essential elements (ash and bone fragments) through intense heat and evaporation. Taking place in a specially designed furnace called a cremation chamber, this is an affordable, more sustainable option for disposition. Recently, cremation became more popular than burial in the United States, and this popularity is only expected to grow.
