Mom's Passing

“I lost my beloved mother to cancer. She had her cremation pre-paid. I can't tell you how much it ..

Beth, Boca Raton

Cremation with the National Cremation® is an increasingly popular option, favored for its low cost, simplicity, flexibility, and reduced land use. The cremation process itself is straightforward.

The deceased is placed in a rigid combustible container then into a cremation chamber. The chamber is raised to a temperature of 1600° to 1800°F for two to two and a half hours.  The body is consumed by heat and evaporation until only bone fragments remain. The bone fragments are processed to further reduce them to a size that facilitates the inurnment and/or makes them acceptable for scattering. The resulting fragments, commonly referred to as ashes, are placed in a temporary container for return to the family. When metal implants are present in a body, they are separated by a magnet, and disposed.

Families commonly choose a decorative urn into which they transfer their loved one's ashes. Cremated remains may be kept in an urn, scattered, or interred.
