Cremation Defined

Cremation is the term used to describe the process used to reduce a dead human body to basic mineral fragments using high-temperature burning, vaporization, and oxidation. Cremation may serve as an alternative to the interment of the deceased’s casketed remains being buried in the ground or in a mausoleum. Cremated remains may be buried or interred in memorial sites or cemeteries, or they may be retained by relatives and dispersed in various ways. Cremation is not an alternative to a funeral, but rather an alternative to burial or other forms of disposition.
