Cremation

Cremation is “the process of reducing the body to ashes and bone fragments through the use of intense heat” (Elder Options of Texas). It is often an affordable alternative to a traditional burial because you can reduce funeral home, cemetery, and headstone costs.

Depending on the regulations of your state, you may have at least a 24-hour waiting period before the cremation can take place. The actual cremation process can take anywhere from 1 to 4 hours as well as a few hours to allow the remains to cool. The remains can weigh anywhere from 3 to 9 pounds.

You have several options for what happens to the remains. The ashes can be buried in a cemetery, placed in a columbarium, or scatter the remains.

You are still able to have a funeral or memorial service with a cremation.
