Understanding Direct Cremations
Cremation is the fastest growing segment of the funeral industry in the United States. Several organizations involved in death care, including the National Funeral Directors Association, are predicting that for the first time, cremations will soon surpass burials in a calendar year. Projected numbers vary slightly from study to study, but final numbers for 2013 show burials running ahead of cremations, 48.7% to 45.4%. Virtually all predicted numbers show a reversal of these figures by the end of 2015. This is a staggering growth spurt, considering for decades cremation services accounted for only about 5% of all deaths. By 2009, however, driven by a number of forces, cremations had soared to 37% of all deaths.

So what is
actually is a cremation service, how is a person cremated, how much does
cremation cost and why has this mode of final disposition become so popular?
Cremation, according to the definition by the Cremation Association of North
America, is "the mechanical and/or thermal or other dissolution process
that reduces human remains to bone fragments. To be more detailed, a casket or
container containing the loved one is placed in a cremation chamber. The
temperature is raised to approximately 1400-1800 degrees Fahrenheit (at Martin Oaks
Cemetery and Crematory, we find that 1600 degrees is about the average) and all
organic matter is then consumed by heat/evaporation. This process takes
approximately two hours. Even though the cremains are sometimes referred to as
ashes, at this point, they truly are bone fragments. These fragments are then
put in a processing device and ground to as fine a level as possible. Cremains
are then placed in an urn or container determined by the family.
