Would You Allow Your Loved Ones To Be Cremated?

This is  a situation whereby when a loved one is dead,the body is being burnt to ashes instead of being buried.

So guys would you like your loved ones to be CREMATED when they are dead ?

As for me ? Land still plenty for burial ground ( graveyard) , so can't subscribe to this . Guys what's your take on this ?

The important thing is where the soul goes after life.

The body can be drowned, buried or cremated. Its just a matter of individual choice, convenience or circumstances.

OMG I can't stand the thought of worms everywhere. There's something obscene about being alive one minute and next you're worm food and pushing up daisies.

Cremate me, and[i] then [/i] bury me.

@ Topic

Correct me if I am wrong . But I think that the issue of cremation is rather geographical,

religious and cultural . I do not think anybody in Nigeria has to bother about cremation

as it is alien to our culture and religions.

But however in many other parts of the world it is standard practice. So its more or less

a case of " to each his own " .

Hi All,

Personally, I would prefer my body to be cremated and the ashes scattered on the land where I fell.  Failing that, the ashes to be stored in an urn or made into a cremation jewellery pendant or rock, for my loved ones to wear or keep and remember me by it.

This might sound bizarre to you but that's how I would like it when I'm departed from this earth.

Sure, the body's lifeless, but it's still a big deal.

Else, there wouldn't be strong leanings towards burial, or cremation.

The body is lifeless anyways, so whatever happened to it after death is not a big deal.

We could save the ground for more property construction and at least Fashola or whatever his name is wont have to demolish houses, he could take the cementary.

I just like the thought I would be blown free into the wind.

The thought of being sealed in a box, and buried, to be eaten by maggots doesn't appeal to me.

So, if my loved one wanted to be cremated, I can see where she's coming from.

Ofcourse, the body has to be disposed somehow, and not just thrown in the woods or lie on the street.

Its cremation for me all d way baby. . .

i am a restless soul, a free spirit. .  i don't like d idea that in death we get sealed in a box and be buried

i'D much rather hav my ashes, scattered in the wind. .  everywhere and anywhere. .  FREEDOM!

As for my loved ones, its basically their decision. .  i'D much rather cremation too, not too keen on picturing their rotten corpses in graves

Hmm. Dunno about cremation but my mum is already telling me she wants to donate her organs to NHS after her death and she is planning to fill the form.

I have an aunt who wants her organs donated to NHS and wishes to be cremated afterwards but her husband is still opposing.

Do you think I'll be able to sleep with a dead friend's, lover's, relative's ashes---- the thought of scattering the ashes of someone I loved with my own hands? That's nightmarish!!!

Hells Yeah!!

Light them up and use their ashes to plant a tree in memory of the person.

When I'm done with this life, I want to be cremated. and spread my ashes in the ocean (that way I can see the world even after I'm gone)

Who wants to be stuck in a box.

Yes. And I especially love the "The First Knight" style. You all remember the film that starred Richard Gere as the knight and Sean Connery as the king who later died and was cremated at sea. The part where the arrow was shot at the raft carrying the body and it went up in flames was so touching. Better than being eaten up by termites and crawling insects.

What if the dead stated categorically that he/she want you to carry the ashes all the way from your base to another country to scatter into the sea?

If it's their wish, I will. But I won't be there when the proceedings are going on, neither will I have anything thing to do with preserving or scattering ashes.

Taylor, you can scatter the ashes of a loved one, in a place that was special to them.

And visit this place, feel what they felt, feel they're still there.

But, I respect your opinion, cremation's not for everyone, same goes for burial.

HELL NO, I rather them or me be buried where I can visit the grave.

When someone is buried you still have a sense of feeling that they are there. When they are cremated, It gives me a sense that they do not exist anymore whatsoever.

I will, yes.

I myself prefer to be cremated when I shuffle off this mortal core.
