Cremation with Confidence(TM)
When you choose cremation, you should have full confidence in the integrity of the process. Our 10-step process provides peace of mind that the cremated remains you receive are those of your loved one.
1. Code of Ethics
We have strict procedures and ethics that we adhere to while your loved one is in our care. We use crematories that we know and trust to uphold these same ethical standards.
2. Celebration of Life
We can assist you in planning a memorial ceremony either before, or after the cremation.
3. Cremation Record
To ensure security, a personal identification card is placed with your loved one the moment they are brought into our care. Their name is entered into our permanent Cremation Record along with other pertinent information.
4. Safeguarding Personal Identity
A numbered stainless steel identification tag is placed with your loved one. This number is logged into our Record and will remain with them throughout the cremation process.
5. Family Viewing
We can provide families with an opportunity to say good-bye to their loved one in a quiet, intimate environment. If selected, this must take place within 24-36 hours after death.
6. Checks and Balances to Ensure Correct Paperwork
Three separate parties: a funeral director, family member (s) and the crematory technician, will review all cremation paperwork and permits.
7. Thorough Communication with Crematory
Prior to the cremation, we can secure a specific date and time for your loved one to be cremated. We will be happy to allow the family to attend and witness this if they so desire.
8. During the Cremation
The numbered stainless steel tag issued by the crematory is present with your loved one during the cremation process.
9. Details After the Cremation
After the cremation is complete the cremated remains are kept with the stainless steel identification tag.
10. Return of the Cremated Remains
If the remains are to be returned to the family, we will notify you to schedule a time for receipt, and a photo ID will be taken of the family receiving the remains. We will also provide a dignified setting in which to receive the remains where you may spend a few moments, privately, in quiet reflection.
