Understanding the Cremation Process
Cremation is the clean and ecologically safe process of reducing a body to its basic elements. During a cremation, the casket or container holding the deceased is placed in the cremation chamber. The chamber temperature reaches up to 1800 degrees Fahrenheit.
After a couple of hours, the cremated remains are carefully removed from the cremation chamber. The cremated remains are then further reduced to smaller particles. Our cremation experts then place the cremated remains in a temporary container or an urn chosen and purchased by the family. Throughout the entire process, we use a carefully controlled labeling system to ensure accurate identification of the cremated remains. This process follows our commitment to providing the highest standard of care and our cremation code of ethics guidelines.
