Cremation offers great flexibility. A commemorative ceremony may be held before or after cremation, in a place of worship, at the funeral home or in the crematorium chapel.
Dating back thousands of years, cremation (or incineration) is the process by which the body of the deceased is reduced to ashes by burning. Like burials, cremation is a worldwide practice. However, only since 1963 has it been authorized by the Catholic Church.
The body of the deceased is incinerated in a casket or a cremation container. Cremation chambers only hold one casket at a time. The ashes are placed in an urn. According to beliefs and values, there are several ways to dispose of the ashes of the deceased.
