What are Cremation Services?
Cremation is a process in which the human body is burned to ashes. Some religions, such as Hindus, cremate their loved ones, after which the ashes are immersed in the holy river Ganga.
What happens at the cremation service in Kolkata?
At a cremation service, the body of the deceased is brought to the ground in a hearse van. The pandit/priest chants some prayers while the cremation process is carried out. After the service, the ashes are collected and kept in an urn by the grieving family.
What is the difference between cremation and direct cremation?
The difference between cremation and direct cremation is the timeline between the demise and the cremation. In the case of direct cremation, the body of the deceased is not prepared and is taken immediately to the crematorium. Whereas, for the traditional cremation in Kolkata, the body is first prepared for viewing that includes embalming and dressing.
