Today, the number of people that choose cremation is higher than ever, but cremation does carry long-standing traditions that have not changed. Basically, cremation speeds up the process of reducing a body to bone fragments by exposing it to intense heat. It is a process which is performed in a respectful and dignified manner and can be memorialized in many ways. Contrary to what some people think, cremation does not limit your choices at all - in fact - is increases them.
You might think that choosing cremation eliminates the need for a funeral service - but that is not true. Both traditional and contemporary services are often planned for before, or after, the cremation process is complete. The best way to look at it is that a funeral service followed by cremation is basically the exact same thing as a funeral service followed by a burial, which is what most people are used to.
