Cremation is the postmortem burning of the body of the deceased in a special furnace (crematorium). Then the ashes of the deceased are given to his relatives for burial in a special urn.

There is a mourning hall in the crematorium, where the farewell to the deceased is held. The cremation procedure takes 1 day. The day and time of burning must be agreed in advance.

Without exception, all funeral events and farewell are held traditionally, the deceased is transferred to the crematorium in a coffin. Then the body is sent to a special furnace, whose temperature is more than 100000C. Under the influence of high temperature, the body turns into ashes after about 2 hours. Then the ashes of the deceased are taken out of the furnace and placed in a special container.
