Today, many people prefer cremation to the conventional burying. This practice is growing in popularity in a wide range of locations throughout the United States and among individuals from diverse faiths. While cremation is a widespread trend, many people are unaware of what it entails.

Cremation Facts

At Blair Mazzarella Funeral Home, we've encountered individuals that harbor different myths and misconceptions concerning cremation. To help you comprehend it better, here are some key facts:

  • Cremation dispenses with the need for a burial site and the embalming of the remains. Embalming the body is not needed if the cremation occurs promptly just after a person's demise.
  • You may choose to preserve the cremains of your loved one in a columbarium or disperse them in your yard. Moreover, as per your region's applicable local laws and regulations, you can also spread their ashes in the sea or another outdoor place.
  • Due to the variety of cremation alternatives, it has become a relatively affordable alternative to burial.
  • Sometimes, relatives live in towns/cities other than the deceased. They face an uphill task when paying tribute to the deceased person. Cremation is a highly effective approach to dealing with this hurdle. You can transport the decedent's ashes in an urn to any destination and pay homage easily whenever you need to.
  • Many individuals believe that cremation prevents them from conducting a memorial/funeral service. This is a misconception, and a memorial service can be held after the cremation. Set the urn in the specified spot during the service so that family, your relatives, and acquaintances can pay their respect to the deceased.

These are just some basic cremation facts that can help you understand the process better.
