The History of Cremation

 

Cremation as a method of disposition is a time-honored and dignified funeral rite that's been practiced for centuries. It was a traditional part of elegant rites performed in ancient Rome and Greece, Native American nations, Thailand, and India.

It's also a form of tribute used to honor leaders, including high lamas of Tibet and Viking kings, who were cremated on ships set aflame at sea.
