Are You Worried About the Ashes?

Many people that discuss cremation services are worried about how the ashes are formed and how to deal with them after the funeral service.

First, you should be aware, after you have spoken with Auburn Douglas(IA) cremation services, that the deceased may not be cremated immediately after they have passed through the curtains at the committal. Although each person is cremated individually and a full tracking system used to ensure the ashes of a deceased are firmly fixed to the right name, a number of cremations arranged by Auburn Douglas(IA) cremation services, may take place at a similar time of day to make effective use of energy and minimize the environmental impact on the area.

Once the ashes are cooled any metal materials are removed by using a powerful magnet. The ashes are then reduced to a fine white and grey ash and carefully placed into the urn that has been previously selected. Auburn Douglas(IA) cremation services will explain that the ashes of a person will consist of approximately 5 pounds in weight and are ready at this stage to be scattered or buried.

Environmental Concerns

When ashes have been spread on the ground, possibly in a church area of land, or perhaps in a favored location of the deceased, the ash is in such a small granular form that it will gradually become part of the earth and there will be no further trace after a short period of time. Cremation services in Auburn Douglas(IA) will be able to tell you that where the ashes are to be scattered over a very small area, it is usual to cover the ashes with a sand mixture so that the remains cannot be blown away in the wind.

Auburn Douglas(IA) cremation services will discuss with you about holding the funeral service in the person's local religious facility. You will be able to arrange to have excerpts read from whatever is the necessary publication of the applicable religion. Where the deceased can be viewed by family members and friends, it could be a good idea to decorate that area in relation to the person's faith.

You will probably discuss with the clergy of that religion about potential places for the ashes to be placed or scattered so that they retain a spiritual significance. Your cremation services in Auburn Douglas(IA) will discuss about who will read prayers that match the key beliefs of the deceased and some favorite musical choices can be taken direct from the selected religion and included in the funeral service.
