Cremation of body parts and fetuses.

Author information

  • Hull Crematorium, Hull, UK.

Abstract

Crematoria are occasionally asked to cremate non-viable fetuses. Many doctors, especially those associated with crematoria, believe that there will be no cremated residue. However, if the cremation technique is modified, cremated remains are produced. These remains can form a focal point for the parent's grief. Crematoria are urged to ensure their technique yields a residue.
