People know more about cremation services in Mohnton, PA than in past decades and that’s a big part of why it has become more popular and is something more people are willing to accept and consider. But there are still myths out there and you don’t want something that isn’t even true to stop you from considering the option. Here are a few cremation myths so you know what you need to know to make a final decision.
Myth 1: Scattering Remains Is Illegal
You might know that a lot of people scatter their loved ones’ remains after cremation, but is it legal? Of course, it is! That many people wouldn’t go against the law. It is certainly legal to scatter cremated remains. However, you do need to be mindful of where you scatter. You should not scatter remains on private property that you don’t own unless you have written permission. And you need to look into regulations on public grounds so you can comply with any rules that might be in place.
Myth 2: You Might Not Get Back The Right Remains
Cremation is a method that has been in place for thousands of years. That means there has been plenty of time for those who run the crematories to fine-tune each and every process—and they have. There are specific procedures in place and cremation providers follow the checks and balances day in and day out. They are 100% certain that the person they are cremating is your loved one. There are no other remains in the crematory with them. And when you receive ashes back, it is your loved one through and through. There are really no mistakes in that area today.
Myth 3: Cremation Costs Less Because It Is A Cheap Way To Go
People place ‘cheap’ into a bad word category. Cremation costs less than funeral services, yes. That doesn’t cheapen the process. It is an honorable, respectful process that gives your loved one everything they need in a dignified manner. The reason it costs so much less is that it takes a lot of the products and services necessary for a funeral out of the picture. You no longer need a casket, a cemetery plot, a headstone, and other such things. Cremation will cost less because of that, not because it is a ‘cheap’ way to go. Inexpensive? Yes. But still high in quality.
