Cremation is simply the process of reducing the human body to particles and bone fragments using high heat and flame. It is not the final disposition of the remains, nor is it a type of funeral service. Depending on weight, cremation itself takes from two to three hours.
Afterwards, what remains are bone fragments, which are then processed to a consistent size resembling coarse sand and ranging in color from white to gray. The remains weigh between four and eight pounds, and they will be placed into a temporary or permanent urn. Regulations only require a bag or box, but Simply Cremation of Middle Georgia offers a variety of beautiful and affordable urns.
When you call or submit the arrangements form, you will specify whether you would like to pick up your loved one’s cremated remains or have them mailed to your home.
