We all have cremation questions, even if you’re asking for “a friend of yours.” In this post we will answer 7 Questions You Might Be Afraid To Ask About Cremation.
Cremation Questions You Might Be Afraid To Ask
Is it really ash?
No, it is bone. After cremation (flame or water) the bone is pulverized by a machine called a cremulator.
What happens to metal medical implants?
They are oftentimes recycled. Some remain after the cremation, and can be requested by the family.
How hot does it get?
1600° to 2200° in a flame retort. 220° in water cremation.
What happens to breast implants?
With flame cremation, they melt away. With water cremation, they look untouched.
Do they cremate more than one person at a time?
Absolutely not. Not even spouses, relatives, siblings.
Is that really my grandma?
Yes, many measures are in place to ensure tracking and proper identification.
Can I have the metal plate back from grampa’s head?
