cremation process can differ extensively from one crematory to the next. Also,
state and federal regulations will also have an effect on the procedures. If you
have particular concerns about cremation laws or procedures in your area, it's
paramount that you check with the cremation service provider that you're considering
or have selected. All of our cremation providers will be glad to explain their
exact procedures and safeguards with you prior to the cremation-taking place.
the moment of death, professional staff will arrive and transport the loved one
to their cremation facility. A mandated 24 to 48 hour "waiting period"
is usually a required until the cremation can be performed; the loved is protected
in a temperature controlled refrigeration unit until the cremation can be performed.
it is time for the cremation to take place, the deceased if required by state
law is placed in a cremation container, and then placed into the cremation chamber.
Licensed and trained staff manages this process, which usually takes 2 to 3 hours.
the cremation process is concluded, the cremated remains are removed from the
chamber. All foreign objects, such as metal from prosthetic devises or bridgework
are removed and discarded.
cremated remains are next processed to a consistent size and shape and placed
into an urn chosen by the family. If an urn has not been selected, then the cremated
remains will be returned in either a cardboard or plastic temporary container.
cremated remains are now delivered to the family or delivered by us to a cemetery
or another final destination.
