Is Cremation Possible for Large Bodies?


I am a senior citizen, I am in poor health, and I weigh 320 pounds. I am 5'9" tall. Is cremation possible for someone of my size and weight?

You would have to check with the crematory that would be doing the cremation to see if their equipment is adequate. Cremations of larger bodies are done as the first case of the day as certain procedures need to be followed. I have heard of cremations of larger individuals so it is possible, but the crematory needs to be consulted.
