Cremation is the combustion and oxidation of a deceased individual into a fine ash. Cremated remains may be buried, interred, kept in an urn by family members, or scattered on land or water. Cremation is now preferred to traditional burial by a majority of Americans.
Simple cremation (sometimes called direct cremation) is the most basic type of funeral arrangement. There is no viewing or visitation prior to cremation; therefore, there is no need for expensive embalming or cosmetology. Simple cremation involves collecting and transporting your loved one from the place of death, filing the necessary paperwork, performing the cremation, and returning the ashes to the family or designated representative
