What is Cremation?

First, let’s give a clear cremation definition. Cremation is an option of body disposition that acts as an alternative to burial. Cremation reduces the body to ashes by exposing it to very high temperatures usually ranging between 1400 to 1800 degrees Fahrenheit. The cremation process is quite technical in nature and is handled by trained, cremation experts. There is the misconception that cremation simply involves lighting the body on fire and letting it burn. However, the process is much more complicated and done with much more care and compassion.
