The cremation service is based on reducing a corpse to ashes within a space that will be prepared for this purpose called a crematorium. A cremation service is a different option from the burial or burial of the body of a deceased person.
In a cremation services, the body of the deceased is prepared by dressing and arranging it in the same way as a body is prepared for burial. Therefore, the body is left clothed, except for any metal items that may be fire-resistant. Therefore, if there is any clothing that you wish to keep, you must communicate this beforehand, so that it can be removed before proceeding with the cremation of the body.
Before the body is taken to the cremation room the relatives have a final farewell with the deceased. The crematory oven is designed to incinerate only human bodies and one body at a time, this oven reaches temperatures between 800 and 1000 degrees centigrade, and is controlled by computer. After the cremation process is completed, the remains pass through a processor that pulverizes the larger bone waste, and then the ashes are expected to cool and are placed in the urn, box, or amphora chosen by the family members.
Just as in the case when the person is to be buried if the family so wishes, awake or some kind of religious service can be held before the cremation, disposing of the body in a coffin. Only the body will be placed in the crematory oven, and in some cases it will be placed inside an ecological cardboard box.
If the family wishes to perform the religious service, it can be done with the body in the coffin before or after the cremation with the remains in the ashes urn. The characteristics of how the religious ceremony is to be carried out will be decided by the family. For these cases, the Arlington Cremation Services has a variety of services available, such as religious and multicultural services offering incense burning, ritual washing, and more.
