On-Site Crematory

On-Site Crematory

Grove-Bowersox Funeral Home, Inc. and Miller-Bowersox Funeral Home offer one of only three on site crematoriums in Franklin County.

The cremation chamber was added to the facilities and placed on site at Grove-Bowersox Funeral Home, Waynesboro, in 1994. This offers our families peace of mind that the cremation process is completed with out the need to transport their loved ones to another facility and their loved one is always in the care of our professional employees.

Cremation is the act of reducing a corpse by burning, generally in a crematorium furnace or crematory fire. Contrary to popular belief, the remains (often called cremains) are not "ashes" in the usual sense, but rather dried bone fragments which have been pulverized in a device called a cremulator.

Cremation may serve as a funeral or post-funeral rite which is alternative to the interment of an intact body in a casket. Cremains, which are not a health risk, may be buried or immured in memorial sites or cemeteries, or they may be legally retained by relatives or dispersed in a variety of ways and locations.
