It's not all human ash. Some of it's the box that they put you in.

What box? From what I've seen, they basically put you on a skillet and put you in a furnace.



Really?

Surely not... I assumed there was a box involved

I was pretty sure they put you in a wood box and burned all of it.

This question has got to me. How do you get all the ashes into a urn? I'll have to look it up or i'm not getting any sleep tonight.

EDIT: They mash up the dry bone fragments.

I think you're wearing clothes... I'm not 100% sure, but when my grandfather was cremated he took along one of my old hockey jerseys and it was cremated along with him. I don't know if that answers any questions.

this should clear up the box issue.

In the U.S., a body ready to be cremated must be placed in a container for cremation, which can be a simple corrugated cardboard box or a wooden casket. Most casket manufacturers provide a line of caskets specially built for cremation.

So there is a box, but how do there catch the ashes, and are they wearing clothes?

Just that you're Canadian.

Did you even read the wiki article? There aren't really any ashes. Just bone fragments that they grind up. So the 'ashes' are actually ground up bones.

Just read the article! It explains everything.




wait... if it takes 2 hours for a single body to burn, how could Auschwitz possibly have burned thousands of jews a day? They definitely didn't have hundreds of ovens...

I smell a conspiracy.

They didn't do one person at a time; the things they burned them in were pretty big.

I'm gonna make an educated guess and say that there aren't actually any remnants of anything other than bone because everything else in your body is squishy and meltable. So yay bones.

It takes one popcorn kernel 1:30 minutes to pop. It takes a whole bag 2 minutes to pop. Same principal with bodies.

It's probs a precise affair. I could burn a chicken quicker than i could cook one if were given a kiln and an oven if you know what i mean.

But if there are more people in there, it would take a proportionally longer time...

Better question.

If an urn gets cremated,


+



does the ash have ash from the urn's ash, or does the ash become new ash without old ash?

The HMS inevitable post has landed.

I kind of churn when I think of bones being pulverized, I always liked the symbolism of the human skull and I think it's a pity to just crush it.

***Ash***




I guess some of the old ash would become new ash but there would still be traces of old ash in the new ash.
