We all have cremation questions, even if you’re asking for “a friend of yours.” In this post we will answer 7 Questions You Might Be Afraid To Ask About Cremation.
Is it really ash?
No, it is bone. After cremation (flame or water) the bone is pulverized by a machine called a cremulator.
What happens to metal medical implants?
They are oftentimes recycled. Some remain after the cremation, and can be requested by the family.
How hot does it get?
1600° to 2200° in a flame retort. 220° in water cremation.
What happens to breast implants?
With flame cremation, they melt away. With water cremation, they look untouched.
Do they cremate more than one person at a time?
Absolutely not. Not even spouses, relatives, siblings.
Is that really my grandma?
Yes, many measures are in place to ensure tracking and proper identification.
Can I have the metal plate back from grampa’s head?
