Cremation vs. burial in Huntsville


Sometimes the decision to choose between burial or cremation is dictated by finances. Cremation is a final disposition that involves subjecting extreme heat to the body and the bone fragment remains are then ground to leave an ash-like powder.

Generally, about 3 pounds of cremated remains are created from an adult cremation.  The cremated remains can be interred (similar to a traditional burial) or can be kept in a cremation urn, scattered, and used to produce memorial items such as cremation diamonds.  

Cremation is deemed an inexpensive alternative to a traditional burial, a more environmentally friendly option, and can offer greater flexibility. It can also eliminate the need to arrange a funeral service immediately.  

If a cremation is conducted, a memorial service can be held at a later time and location suiting the family, with the cremated remains present.

The DFS Memorials provider for Huntsville also offers affordable funeral packages.
