    i thought they did. I think that's what my parents told me when my aunt was cremated. They were just scooping up ashes from the floor and putting them in a box.

    It's a rather more precise process than that. Perhaps you should read this page from the Cremation Society:

    I think the ashes that end up in the urn will be mostly your own, but I don't think that they go to great lengths to clean the ovens between cremations, so you might have a bit of company.

    They're legally required to go to fairly great lengths to ensure the integrity of the ashes.

    That's quite reassuring.

    Cremation actually looks quite exciting. I once saw a documentary where the coffins would travel along a conveyor belt and shoot into the oven at a high speed. Not that I'd be able to appreciate that when I'm dead, of course.

    No one answered my question; why do you care what happens to your body? You'll be dead, like you'll even know.
    because I would like to thake my families wishes into account

    I put cremated, but what I would really like is a Viking funeral. If you're gonna go, you may as well go out with a bang

    i dunno, i dont want to be eaten by maggots or burned... cremation seems so final, there is really nothing left of you, but being put in a box and buried doesnt sound so great either. I guess i'll just live forever

    I really don't know which one to choose, as when I'm dead, I'm not sure what method they would do when I die anyway.

    If I have to choose one, I would be burried, because you will get a gravestone saying your name, date of death, picture, etc... along with the body burried under the ground. However, the bad thing is that maggots and other stuff in the ground will eat you. Don't really care as I'm dead.

    hm. I'm not sure. I guess if you're cremated you are DEFINATELY dead so you on't suddenly wake up in a coffin.
    I really fancy having my name wriiten somewhere though instaed of sitting on some shelf collecting dust.
    If you are really dead, it's not possible to suddenly wake up in a coffin.

    Yeah, having a name on the tombstone is a good idea. However, it's quite expensive doing that unfortunately.

    That's how I saw it when my grandma was cremated. ...cremation is so horrendous for those who watch the ceremony and think about it.

    I don't think so. Burial is worse. Thinking about them burning vs. thinking about them after a few weeks of decomposition? I'd take the first option. I have a vivid imagination, and can't help picturing it.

    Burial.

    Cremation just seems way too extravagant and dramatic too be something that happens to me after I die therefore meaning that I can't see it. Maybe I could watch the cremation then die and then be buried?

    i think being buried is a nicer (if that's the word!!) idea but my worst fear is being buried alive! So obviously cremation sounds the safer idea as there is no chance of waking up in your coffin!! :p:
