"Cremains" is a portmanteau of the words "Cremated" and "Remains" and refers to the "ashes" or the powdered remains of a deceased person's body that are left after the process of cremation.

Cremation is a method of Final Disposition that involves reducing the body to ashes and bone fragments through the application of intense heat.

Cremains are typically returned to the deceased's Surviving Family; they can choose to keep the cremains in an Urn, Scatter them in a meaningful location, Bury them, or use them in various memorialization options, such as creating cremation jewelry or incorporating them into artwork.

Cremation has become a popular choice for body disposition in many cultures due to its flexibility and cost-effectiveness. Cremains provide families with a tangible representation of their loved one that they can choose to memorialize in various ways that hold special meaning to them.
