Cremation Services Idaho Falls ID

Cremation is the act of reducing a corpse by burning, generally in a crematorium furnace or crematory fire. Contrary to popular belief, the remains (often called cremains) are not "ashes" in the usual sense; they are dried bone fragments that have been pulverized in a device called a cremulator.

Cremation

Cremation is the act of reducing a corpse by burning, generally in a crematorium furnace or crematory fire. Contrary to popular belief, the remains (often called cremains) are not "ashes" in the usual sense; they are dried bone fragments that have been pulverized in a device called a cremulator. Most people consider what's left after the cremation of a body as "ash". On our site we use the commonly understood term "Ashes" when talking about what remains after a body is cremated.

Ashes, which are not a health risk, may be buried or immured in memorial sites or cemeteries, or they may be legally retained by relatives or dispersed in a variety of ways and locations.

Most every funeral home now provides cremation as a service option.
