Cremation is selected for many reasons ranging from religious beliefs or ethnic customs to cost. Cremation should not be selected in an attempt to hasten or circumvent the grieving process, which is a necessary part of re-adjusting to life after death, and to coping with the great sense of pain and loss that one experiences.

Are Cremation Services Common?


Cremation is the second most common form of disposition in the United States. In other countries, such as England and Japan, cremation is the most common.

There are a variety of options for the final disposition of cremated remains. Urns or other containers may be placed in a niche at a columbarium, a structure or room designed to contain cremated remains. Families may elect to bury the urn in a family plot or cemetery or keep it in another place of personal significance, such as the home.

Subject to some restrictions, cremated remains can be scattered by air, over the ground or over water. Your Funeral Director can advise about allowable practices in your community.

Some form of memorialization often accompanies scattering of cremated remains. Most people find consolation knowing there is a specific place to visit when they wish to remember and feel close to the person they have lost.

After several hours, the intense heat reduces the casket or cremation container, as well as the remains, to small bone fragments. The remains are then placed in a processor and reduced to "ashes." The cremated remains then are placed in an urn or temporary container and returned to the family. At Boulevard funeral home, we offer the top cremation services nj.
