Whether for religious, environmental or personal reasons, an increasing number of families are choosing cremation over the traditional burial. Cremation is a simple and dignified service option that generally costs less than a traditional funeral service. It doesn’t require costly caskets or cemetery plots and, therefore, can be an affordable alternative to the typical funeral service but just as memorable.

Understanding the Cremation Process

Cremation is the clean and ecologically safe process of reducing a body to its basic elements. During a cremation, the casket or container holding the deceased is placed in the cremation chamber.

After several hours, the cremated remains are carefully removed from the cremation chamber. The remains are then processed into a fine powder-like material called “cremains,” or more commonly referred to as “ashes.” The crematory experts then place the cremains in a temporary container or an urn chosen and purchased by the family. Throughout the entire process, the crematory uses a carefully controlled labeling system to ensure accurate identification of the cremated remains.

If you have questions or concerns about the cremation process, please call Clark Legacy Center. Our friendly professionals can give you more details about the process and help you decide if cremation is the best option.
