The body of the deceased person is placed in a sturdy, combustible container of cardboard along with the metal identification tag that is placed with your loved-one’s body when they come into our care.
The deceased is then placed in the cremation chamber, which is heated to between 1400 and 1800 degrees Fahrenheit. The body is reduced to its basic elements, which, along with bone fragments, are what remain at the end of the approximately 3-hour cremation process. These cremated remains, commonly referred to as “ashes”, are ground into a fine, sand-like substance and placed in a simple, biodegradable paper urn.
You can rest assured that all our cremations are individual cremations, carried out with the utmost care and attention.
