Are you curious about cremation and, therefore, have splitting ashes questions? These are the answers to splitting ashes questions submitted so far. If you don't find an answer to your cremation question - then ask your own splitting ashes question - or any other cremation question - now.
If the urn is sealed permanently and family wants to split the ashes up between members after they have already brought home the cremated body in a large urn?
Once the funeral provider returns the cremated body to the legal representive, that person(s) is free to do what they want with the cremated body. The State Health Department considers cremation as the “final deposition” and the body (in this case cremated body) no longer a health hazard. An additional note however, some religions do not like the cremated body divided, separated, scattered or split-up. So if your faith (religion) is important, make sure you check with your religious leader on the policy regarding cremation.
