Common Cremation Questions

Cremation is the second most common form of disposition in the United States . The percentage of cremations to deaths in the United States and Canada has increased steadily during the last two decades. In other countries, such as England and Japan , cremation is the most common form of disposition.

The deceased body is exposed to open flame, intense heat and evaporation, reducing it to bone fragments in two to three hours. There are several options for containing the remains.

Many states require a two day waiting period between the time of death and cremation. The waiting period provides the time necessary for your funeral director to file for required permits and receive proper authorizations. Families frustrated by the delay should try to remember that a person’s identity or cause of death can be lost forever without great attention to these matters prior to cremation.
