Body Cremation Temperature : Options for Storage of Ashes
Once the cremation process is complete, the ashes of the deceased are generally given to the next of kin for final disposition. Urns can be artistically designed or purely functional, depending on your wishes and desires. A biodegradable urn will be used if the ashes will be buried or floated on water. Not everyone however wishes to dispose of the ashes, keeping them in the urn at home or in a Columbarium.
Storing ashes in an urn on a mantel is still a popular option in the UK. If you however wish to preserve the ashes, but don’t want them in your own home, you can opt for them to be displayed in a Columbarium at a local cemetery or church. This is rather akin to having a grave that you can visit, allow you to remember the deceased and store some personal items with the ashes such as some photos or personal effects.
If you choose to bury the ashes of a loved one, there will generally be an addition cost for the burial plot. You can avoid any additional cost when you use the plot of a family member. Asides keeping or scattering the ashes of the deceased, there are some other interesting ways to remember your loved one.
Human ashes can be converted into diamonds or glass using blowing techniques, the ashes being mixed with molten glass. This is a timeless way to remember the deceased, and one that is gaining popularity both in the UK as well as across Europe and further afield.
Another option is to keep a small amount of the ashes in a bracelet or pendant, scattering or burying the majority of the remains. This is a way to keep a reminder that can be passed down from generation to generation within your family.
In modern times, the pollution caused by body cremation temperature, and the gases emitted from the cremation chamber is leading to more and more people opting for more natural burials. People nowadays may opt for green burials, sea burials, or eco-burials where they will become a tree.
Cremation is still a popular method for deaths in the UK in larger towns and cities where there is no room on cemeteries, and no green burial grounds nearby. The more densely populated the area you live in, the higher the price tag for a standard burial plot. Cremating the deceased can therefore save you money, but allow you a way to remember a loved-one by keeping hold of a small amount of the ashes or having them converted into glass or jewelry.
