Frequently Asked Questions

What are cremated remains?

Cremated remains, or cremains, are the ashes that remain following the cremation process.

 

Is DNA still retrievable from cremated ashes?

 

No. Cremation is an irreversible process. DNA starts to degrade at about 800 degrees F. The heat in a cremation chamber may range from 1400 to 1800 degrees F. Any DNA is thus destroyed by the cremation process.

 

Can you exhume an embalmed body and have it cremated?

 

Depending on the situation and the laws of your state, it may be possible to exhume a body under certain circumstances and have it cremated. Cremation is recommended if the purpose of exhuming the body is to transport the remains. Due to the natural processes of decay, transporting an exhumed body is more expensive and challenging than transporting the cremated remains of the body once exhumed.
