ARE MORE PEOPLE CHOOSING CREMATION?
The number of people who prefer cremation has constantly increased. In Florida, the percentage surpasses 50%, and the numbers are steadily growing in every state. Recent projections by the Cremation Association of North America reflect a national average continuing to grow. In other developed nations like Japan and the countries of Scandinavia, percentages reach as high as 95%.
Individual reasons for choosing cremation are as varied as the alternatives. High cost of funerals, concerns for the environment, cold-weather constraints, and ease of transportation to distant burial site are just a few. But most people choose cremation for its simplicity.
At American Heritage Cremation Society, Simple Cremation services consist of transportation from place of death; temporary shelter of remains; completion of necessary documents, obtaining permits and authorizations and preparation of death certificate; standard cremation container; cremation procedure; and delivery of cremains to designated destination (providing a selection of permanent urns, if desired).
WHAT IS CREMATION?
Cremation is a computerized thermal process of applied heat and dehydration that reduces the human body to its basic elements. It is accomplished in a special chamber called a retort, taking approximately one to two hours.
The cremated remains (often referred to as "ashes") are called cremains and usually weigh from four to nine pounds. They are enclosed in a sealed heavy polyurethane bag and packaged in a container suitable for transport. Urns, or permanent containers, can be selected and purchased separately if desired. (Artistic designs and materials vary according to individual tastes and/or final disposition requirements of the cemetery or columbarium).
In a religious context, the human body originating from and returning to the basic elements of nature, "dust", is a Biblical principle, expressed in Genesis 2:7 and 3:19, Ecclesiastes 3:20 and 12:7, Psalms 22:29 and 103:14, 1 Corinthians 15:47, and other passages. Natural decay and decomposition is God's immutable law for returning the body to "dust."
WHAT HAPPENS AFTER CREMATION ?
in cemeteries,* urn gardens, at sea or at a National
Cemetery for veterans and their spouses.
INURNMENT in a niche of a columbarium in cemeteries, churches and other locations. *
SCATTERING in a memorial garden of a cemetery or church, at-sea, over private property, and a host of other personal options.
KEEP AT HOME in a permanent urn. This is often done with consideration for later transport and or burial.
"KEEPSAKES" are miniature urns or pendants designed to contain a portion of the cremains while the remainder is buried, scattered or inurned.
*If using a private cemetery, you may need to purchase a permanent urn or vault, an opening & closing as well a marker. These are not requirements of American Heritage Cremation Society.
