Many other funeral homes hire third party crematories, typically located in a warehouse district. These funeral homes transfer your loved one to outside cremation services, making it impossible for the funeral home to manage and supervise the cremation.
We have our own crematory, so all your services are handled and managed by our certified staff and your loved one never leaves our care.
To ensure security, a personal identification band is placed on your loved one the moment your loved one is transferred to our care.
Your loved one is registered into our tracking system and assigned an identification number, which is stamped into a stainless steel identification tag. This number is used to track every phase of the cremation process.
Our tracking system includes date and time of arrival at our facility and name of the transfer technician. Personal belongings are cataloged and placed in a secure area for their return to the family.
We will bathe and dress your loved one in the clothes provided by the family or in a gown we provide. Then we will invite you to a private family gathering where you will have an opportunity for a last goodbye with your loved one.
Checks and Balances
Our certified crematory operator will review all cremation paperwork. This is to ensure authorizations have been received and have been properly documented. Our crematory registry is dated and initialed by the certified operator before and after the cremation. The crematory documents are placed on the outside of the cremation chamber during the cremation process. The stainless steel identification tag is placed in the cremation chamber with your loved one.
Once all documentation is verified, our certified operator will proceed with the cremation.
After the cremation is complete, the cremated remains are placed in the urn selected with the stainless steel identification tag, or into a plastic bag with the identification tag attached and placed into our velvet delivery bag.
We always treat families like our own. We will assist you in planning a meaningful ceremony either before or after the cremation, which will provide an opportunity for family and friends to pay tribute to your loved one and to share the memories of a lifetime.
Our professional planners are specially trained to assist you with memorialization options and an appropriate placement for family, friends, and future generations to pay their respects. If no memorialization has been selected, our staff will schedule a time for receipt of the cremated remains and provide a dignified setting, in which to receive the urn, where you may spend a few moments, privately, in quiet reflection.
