Our Cremation Assurance Program
Feel confident and secure as you learn about our unique cremation process and our commitment to every family we serve. Once we receive your call, our staff attends to every detail using our Cremation Assurance Program.
Your Loved One Never Leaves Our Care
Our families find comfort and peace of mind knowing that we own and operate our own crematory. This is important because many other funeral homes hire third-party crematories, typically located in a warehouse or industrial districts. Many cremation service providers transfer your loved one to these third-party crematories. This makes it impossible for the funeral home to manage and supervise the care and custody of the deceased, as well as the actual cremation process.
We Safeguard Your Personal Identity
To ensure security, a personal identification band is placed on your loved one at the moment they enter our care. This information is protected through our unique tracking system.
Our Tracking System
Upon arrival, your loved one is entered into our tracking system and assigned a unique identification number. This number is stamped into a bronze identification tag and remains with the individual throughout the entire process. This number is used to track every phase of the cremation process. Our tracking system includes date of arrival at our facility, name of the transfer technician, the exact cremation container selected by the family, and the urn that will hold the cremated remains.
You have the option of seeing your loved one prior to cremation, as many families find this helpful in the grieving process. You and your family are invited to personalize the cremation container with notes and letters, and you also have the option to be present during the cremation process.
Checks and Balances to Ensure Correct Paperwork
Our certified cremation technician will review all cremation paperwork and permits. The cremation will occur only after all documentation is verified and approved.
Cremation Log Book
When your loved one is taken to our crematory, his or her personal information is recorded in our cremation logbook. This log contains the name of the individual, date and time of the cremation, identification number, and certified crematory operator’s name. Our crematory log is dated and the time is noted and initialed by a cremation technician, verifying both start and completion time of the cremation.
Details During the Cremation
The crematory checklist and identification card is placed on the outside of the cremation chamber. The bronze identification tag is placed on the inside of the crematory with your loved one during the cremation process.
Details After the Cremation
After the cremation is complete, the cremated remains are placed along with the bronze identification tag into the urn selected by your family. The identification card is placed inside the urn with the cremated remains.
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 you with the necessary paperwork should you decide to have the urn placed in a cemetery or to take the urn with you on an airplane.
Celebration of Life
We will assist in planning a funeral, memorial, or a simple gathering to say goodbye, either before or after the cremation, to appropriately celebrate the life of your loved one. A meaningful ceremony provides an opportunity for family and friends to pay tribute to your loved one and to share the memories of a lifetime.
