What Is Involved in the Cremation Process?

What Is Cremation?

Cremation is the clean and ecologically safe process of reducing a body to its basic elements. The decedent is placed into a casket or container, following our 8 Step Peace of Mind Cremation Identification Process. After our identification process the casket or container is then inserted into the cremation chamber. The temperature of the chamber reaches up to 1800 degrees Fahrenheit.

After a couple of hours, the cremated remains are carefully removed from the cremation chamber. These remains are then processed into a fine powder-like material and placed either in a temporary container provided by our crematory or an urn purchased by the family. Throughout the entire process, our crematory uses a carefully controlled labeling system to ensure accurate identification of the cremated remains.
