What happens to a body during cremation?

Cremation reduces the body to its essential elements through a process that exposes it to open flames, intense heat, and evaporation. This takes place in a specially designed furnace called a cremation chamber or retort. Many crematories require a container for the body, such as a casket appropriate for cremation or a rigid cardboard container.

What is the difference between traditional cremation and simple cremation funeral service?

Traditional cremation incorporates elements of both a traditional funeral and a cremation ceremony. It is a more expensive option since it includes services such as embalming and casket rentals. On the other hand, simple cremation sometimes referred to as “direct cremation” or “immediate cremation”, is when the cremation process is performed immediately following the time of death. This option eliminates the need for the embalming services required for a visitation, wake, or viewing.
