Cremation is a method of Final Disposition in which a deceased person's body is burned and reduced to an "ash" like substance.

The process typically involves placing the body inside a specialized furnace called a cremation chamber or retort where it is exposed to extremely high temperatures for several hours.

The heat causes organic matter to break down and evaporate, leaving behind only bone fragments and ashes. The bone fragments are then made into a fine powder using a machine called a Cremulator.

The ashes are typically placed in a container, such as an Urn, and can be kept by Surviving Family members, scattered in a meaningful location, Buried, or Entombed.

Cremation is a popular alternative to traditional burial chosen because of personal or religious beliefs, it's cheaper cost, or environmental concerns.
