It was in the 1980s that Cremation became popular in the US. While being usually a broad term, encompassing many different types, methods and niches, it has become popular due to the professional management of funerals. Direct Cremation is one such. The body of the deceased is cremated almost immediately after the death, and for which there would be no viewing, memorial or visitation. Direct Cremation is economical and we, at Faith Funeral Service, offer them too. Expensive caskets, ornamentation for the viewing, or embalming are done away with, and this method is eco-friendly, too.
Usually, people plan a memorial service, any time after the cremation is done. This is normally done for enabling the flexibility of the timeline to allow more people to attend the function, and for getting more time to plan an elaborate, personalized and unique service. Burials were popular among the Christians as Jewish practice and the Bible itself are against cremation., but not though, nowadays. Cremation has a history dating back to 1873.
It was in 1876 that the first modern cremation centre was built in Washington, Pennsylvania. This was followed by the one in Lancaster, PA in 1884. By 1900 there were twenty in operation. Later, in 1913, the Cremation Association of America was founded. Cremation Association of America (CANA) spread the word on the modern views on disposing of the bodies pointing to how the ancient people had been doing it hygienically and in an eco-friendly manner. This was supported mainly because doctors were concerned about the whole-body burials in certain cases. Later scientific proofs were brought to light that burials if done properly, did not cause any harm to the ecology as well as to the hygiene. Later, however, CANA supported cremation not on health grounds, but as a choice of memorialization.
All around the world, cremation is still the popular choice, and in America, it started in the 1980s. At faith funeral home, Paragould, AR Cremation is mainly of three types, and they are the Direct one with a memorial service and the ones with a viewing/service.
