Why Choose Direct Cremation?
One of the services offered by Plummer Funeral Home is cremation. Cremation has become a popular method for the disposition of final remains and an option more and more people are turning to with each passing decade. Through a process of heat and evaporation, remains are rendered to small fragments and then processed into a fine powder. The process is tightly controlled and performed according to specific guidelines, and the deceased is treated with the utmost respect at all times. The entire process is usually completed within three hours.
There are many factors influencing the growing trend of cremation, including environmental concerns, cost, and religious traditions. When cremation is chosen, resources required for traditional burial can be preserved, including already limited green space. There are additional costs associated with traditional burial that are not required with cremation, such as embalming and public or private viewing of the deceased. Some religious traditions, such as Sikhs and Buddhists, choose cremation because they believe it frees the soul.
Bath Cremation Services
The City of Bath, the seat of Sagadahoc County, was founded as a town in 1781 and a city in 1847. This quaint city with a population of 8,000 sits on the Kennebec River. It was built on the industry of shipbuilding. This remains a major industry in Bath today with the presence of Bath Iron Works. Visitors to Bath can get back to nature with tours of nature preserves and sanctuaries, a trip to nearby Popham Beach State Park, or a serene walk through Sewall Woods. There’s also a maritime museum and a great selection of dining, shopping, and entertainment activities in the downtown area. Plummer Funeral Home is proud to serve the city of Bath.

Cremations are Simple but Versatile
When a family chooses cremation through SimpleCremationOnline, they are choosing a direct cremation. This choice precludes having a traditional service with a viewing. In this case, the deceased would be embalmed and would not be cremated until services were complete. Other alternatives with a direct cremation include a memorial service or a committal or scattering ceremony after cremation. Cremated remains can be buried in a traditional grave, placed in a ceremonial garden, mausoleum, or columbarium or scattered in a location that was of special importance to the deceased. A family can choose to keep all or a portion of the cremated remains in their care.
