What are the three types of cremation?
The traditional cremation consists of a standard funeral service, where family and friends gather to mourn. The wake may last from 2 to 3 days, and instead of burying the deceased, the body is taken to a crematorium to be cremated. The ashes afterwards are either buried, scattered or brought home as a memento.
This type of cremation is where the body, after death, is cremated before a memorial service takes place. The cremated remains are then placed in an urn and given to the family before the memorial service is conducted. There are many kinds of situations where this kind of arrangement is needed. An example is if a highly infectious disease causes the death of a loved one.
This is the basic type of cremation. The body of the deceased is taken directly to the crematorium even without any plans of a memorial service. The cremated remains are placed in an urn and are returned to the family. It is the quickest form of cremation and is one of the most used today.
