Five Steps During and After Cremation:


  1. Your loved one is removed from our refrigeration facility and noted in our facility logbook. The log shows date and time of  the cremation and the crematory operator’s name.
  2. Our crematory checklist is dated; start time noted and signed by the operator immediately before and after the cremation takes place.
  3. The crematory checklist and individual numbered identification tag are placed on the control panel of the cremation chamber during the cremation process.
  4. After the cremation is completed the cremated remains are removed from the chamber and taken to the processing station and allowed to cool. The crematory checklist and numbered identification tag are placed on the processing station until the processing of the cremated remains is complete.
  5. The numbered identification tag and the cremation checklist are reviewed and matched. A cremation certificate and label are created before placement of the cremated remains in the urn selected by the family.

Five Steps Prior To Cremation:


  1. Our “identification band” is placed on your loved one at the time we come to your home, hospital, or other care facility.
  2. The cremation container is properly labeled with your loved one’s name, when they are placed into our secure refrigeration facility.
  3. Everyone gets registered into our facility logbook with name, date, time and transporters name.
  4. Our General manager or crematory manager reviews all cremation permits to insure they have been properly filed and received prior to scheduling the cremation.
  5. If you wish, the family may witness the cremation. Our state-of-the-art cremation facility is set up to allow family members to be present when the body is placed into the cremation chamber. In fact, some religious groups include this as part of their funeral custom. If you choose to have a final goodbye, we would be honored to make arrangements for a final goodbye as a part of our initial arrangements with the family.
