What Makes Simple Cremation Simple?

Simple cremation is the term used in reference to having a cremation without necessarily having an attached formal service, such as a funeral or celebration of life. It is also sometimes called a direct cremation. It is a way to handle the time-sensitive nature of laying your loved one to rest without having to make every decision needed in planning a ceremony in their honor right now. In short, it opens up some flexibility in the timeline. Cremation itself is a fairly straightforward process. We start by obtaining the necessary permits, and we wait at least the legal time frame (two days after death) to begin. We carefully work through our rigorous identification process and prepare the deceased for cremation. We place the body in an appropriate cremation container. The container is then placed within the cremation chamber, where the heat is applied. This process heats up to very high temperatures (up to 2000 degrees Fahrenheit) and typically takes a few hours. After a cooling period, the remaining particles in the chamber are completely gathered, and then fragments of bone are ground up, so the particles are uniform in size. These are what we refer to as the “ashes.” After that, the ashes are set into a container called an urn. The urn is then returned to the living loved ones for their next steps.

How Can I Know if Direct Cremation is Right for Me?

Direct cremations are an excellent option for many families. They are especially suited for those who need to have a service later or wish to handle the matter without a service at all. They also work well for those who are needing more budget-friendly options than a traditional funeral with a burial.

However, there are some situations where retaining a more traditional funeral home might make more sense. If embalming and a public viewing are desired, these are not services that we can accommodate and would need to be handled elsewhere. We could certainly handle your cremation needs after those services were completed.

Cremation FAQs

How are cremations done?

Cremation reduces the body to its basic elements through a process that exposes it to open flames, intense heat, and evaporation. This takes place in a specially designed furnace called a cremation chamber or retort. The container with the body is moved to the retort or cremation chamber. Learn more about arranging a cremation.

Is a casket required for cremation?

Not necessarily. All that is required is that the body must be placed in a rigid, fully combustible container, with a top and no metal parts, during cremation. Learn more about cremation containers.

What are the benefits of cremation?

Simple, or direct, cremation is cremation without the full funeral home experience. It does not include embalming, visitation, or a ceremony. A common misconception is that if a family chooses direct cremation for their loved one, they can’t have a ceremony. Learn more about the benefits of cremation.
