Common Misconceptions Regarding Cremations


As your funeral services provider, SWGA Cremation & Funeral Services views educating people about the cremation process to be part of our mission. This is because we are frequently confronted with questions that represent the process’s misconceptions. Even though cremations are now more popular than decades ago, many myths about them must be dispelled.

  • You Don’t Get the Chance to Say Goodbye This is probably one of the most frequent myths concerning cremations. Cremation may occur soon after death or after a reasonable viewing period. Cremations offer additional flexibility based on the needs and wishes of the family.
  • Cremains May or May Not Be Laid to Rest While some people prefer to spread their ashes at sea or in another special location, others prefer to have their cremains buried in a cemetery burial. A headstone and a memorial can still be placed for family members to visit.
  • I Might Not Receive My Loved One’s Actual Ashes

    While mistakes can occur in large crematories, they cannot occur at our crematory in Albany, Georgia. When we take ownership of a loved one’s body, we keep it until the cremains are returned to the family.

    This makes it easier and more comfortable for families to select a small amount of cremains to be utilized to produce cremation jewelry or other keepsakes.

  • You Don’t Need to Know Everything About Cremations We accept and welcome your lack of knowledge by offering the information you need to make the best decisions for you and your family. If you have any questions concerning our cremation services in Georgia, please do not hesitate to contact us.  

Please allow us to assist you in making the funeral process less stressful for you and your family.
