AFFORDABLE CREMATION SERVICES in Dallas TX
There are a great number of families look for decent and affordable, low cost cremation services and are left at a loss. Many Dallas cremation services provide expensive packages that are simply not affordable. It is understandable that all families want to send off their loved one in a decent way. However, for some families, this urge is made impossible due to the expensive nature of cremation services.
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.
Understanding Direct Cremations in Dallas Texas
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.

This means that there are no memorial services or body visitation held in respect of the deceased, which also excludes the need for an expensive casket.

- Environmental awareness, also, concerns about placing a loved one in a funeral plot;
- Speed of final disposition: cremations take several hours to complete, the paperwork may take several days, but this is much faster than burial and natural decomposition;
- Simple process that still provides options (cremation urns for the ashes, burial of the urns, scattering of ashes, urn vaults);
