Cremation Trust - 10 Step Process

1. Transfer of Care


Our Funeral directors oversee each step in the process from the transfer of your loved one into our care, the cremation and the return of your loved one’s cremated remains.

 

2. Safeguarding personal identity


To ensure security, a personal identification medallion is placed on your loved one at the moment your loved one enters our care.

 

3. Unique tracking system


Upon arrival, your loved one is logged into our tracking system and assigned an identification number. This number is used to track every phase of the cremation process. Our tracking system includes date and time of arrival at our facility and name of the transfer technician. Personal belongings are cataloged and placed in a secure area for their return to the family.

 

4. Family identification


If you wish, immediately before cremation you may see your loved one to say goodbye. You can see that the crematory is clean. If you desire, you can wait in our chapel and read a book until the cremation is finished.

 

5. Checks and balances to ensure correct paperwork


Two individuals, a cremation technician and a funeral home staff member, will review all cremation paperwork and permits. This is to ensure authorization and permits have been properly documented.

 

6. Cremation log book


Immediately prior to the cremation process, your loved one is taken to our private crematory and the personal ID is noted in our cremation log book. This shows the name of the individual, date and time of the cremation, ID number, and the crematory operator’s name. Our crematory log is dated and the start time is noted and initialed by a cremation technician before and after the cremation.

 

7. Final Farewell


One advantage of choosing our funeral home is that we offer a private identification prior to the cremation process. This identification is done in our private chapel.

 

8. Details during the cremation


The crematory checklist and identification card are placed on the outside of the cremation chamber during the cremation process.

 

9. Details after the cremation


After the cremation is complete, the cremated remains are processed and placed into an urn or other suitable container. The ID medallion is placed into the urn or other suitable container.

 

10. Return of the cremated remains


Our staff will notify you to schedule a time for receipt of the cremated remains. At this time, we will provide a dignified setting in which to receive the urn, where you may spend a few moments privately, in quiet reflection
