As the popularity of cremation continues to grow across North America, area residents find themselves curious about the evolution and practice of cremation. They come to Provenzano Lanza Funeral Home with cremation questions, and ask to learn all about cremation.
Because of this widespread interest, we decided to dedicate a section of our website to providing the kind of cremation information families want: detailed facts, honestly yet compassionately delivered. Please review the information below, each written by funeral professionals, expressly to inform, educate, and empower you to make the best possible decisions regarding the final care of a loved one.
In the cremation facts section below, we cover what exactly happens in cremation and which religions typically support cremation and which do not. In the why cremation section we cover what kind of person cremation is typically appropriate for and whether you should consider direct cremation vs arranging a funeral or memorial service alongside the cremation to provide a space for family and friends to come together and grieve for their loved one. We also cover a list of commonly asked questions on cremation.
