Five Steps Prior to Cremation:
- Our “Wrist identification band” is discretely placed on your loved one at the time we come to your home, hospital or other Care Facility. A “unique, numbered, marker medallion” is added once they arrive at our facility.
- The Cremation Container is labeled with your loved one’s name and other pertinent information when they are placed into our secure, holding facility.
- Your loved one is logged into our facility logbook with date, time and attendant’s name and then placed into our secure holding facility. Both name and medallion are verified every step along the way.
- Our crematory operator and/or office manager review all cremation paperwork and permits to insure accuracy and completeness. One of them must sign the crematory checklist.
- If you wish, immediately before cremation, you may see your loved one, hold their hand and say goodbye. You can see that the cremation chamber is clean and empty. You can wait in our waiting room, read a book and receive the cremated remains in about three hours.
Five Steps During and After Cremation:
- Your loved one is removed from our holding facility and placed in the cremation chamber. Both name and medallion number are verified.
- Our crematory checklist is reviewed, dated; start time noted and signed immediately before and after the cremation takes place.
- The unique, marker medallion is placed inside of the cremation chamber during the cremation process.
- After the cremation is completed, the cremated remains are carefully removed and taken to the processing station and allowed to cool. The crematory checklist and marker medallion accompany the cremated remains. The cremated remains are then placed in an urn, in preparation to be returned.
- A label is placed on the urn, which shows the name and other personal, identifying information for your loved one. The marker medallion is placed inside the urn with the cremated remains and a cremation certificate is printed to accompany the cremated remains of your loved one.
