How can we help?


Cremation is a form of disposing of remains by burning them. It has existed since ancient times and is still the predominant form of remains disposition in many cultures. Open-air pyres are more traditional and rare, while most funeral homes offer cremation options, usually using a furnace. The grieving family eventually receives the cremation ashes so they can bury or scatter them.
