History of Cremation

Cremation is older than the burial ceremony. Scholars agree that the first cremations have taken place around 3000 BC, most in Europe and the Middle East. In many ancient cultures the cremation was part of the religion funeral. Cremation was done to prevent a recurrence of death. From about 2500-1000 BC cremation expanded to the British Isles and into what is now Spain and Portugal.

Only the Egyptians held strictly to the mummification process. Their rejection of cremation is explained by its peculiar conception of the fire, which they believed to be an animal and in their religion it was forbidden to feed animals with dead human bodies.

Around 1000 BC, cremation became an integral part of Greek funerary culture. The Romans adopted this Greek custom of cremation. During the Roman period from 27 BC to 395 AD, the cremation was practiced. The ashes were kept in artfully worked urns. It is known that the greatest heroes of the Romans as Pompey, Caesar and Augustus were cremated.

In today's society, there are more and more cremations and the urns have become increasingly individualized.
