The intense heat of the crematorium consumes virtually all the organic material in the body, and what is left consists primarily of bone fragments. These are of various sizes, and a machine much like a coffee grinder reduces the cremated remains to a a consistent texture.
These remains are virtually odorless and weigh somewhere in the neighborhood of 6-8 pounds.
Typically the cremated remains are delivered to your local funeral provider for inurnment or delivery.
