A direct cremation involves no funeral or memorial service. There is always an option to have a graveside service or scattering service if desired.
What do we do?
Our staff will ask permission to bathe and dress your loved one in clothes provided by the family. Then we will request you, or a loved one, to positively indentify him or her prior to cremation.
Certify Correct Paperwork
Our staff and the cremation operation technician review the paperwork together. This ensures the correct documentation is provided by all parties and proper authorization has been received. Once all documentation is verified, the cremation process is commenced.
During The Cremation
The cremation paperwork, steel identification tag, and personal identification paperwork are placed on the outside of the cremation chamber for the entire duration of the cremation.
Details After The Cremation
After the cremation is complete, the cremated remains are placed into either the temporary urn container or the permanent urn selected by the family. The urn is immediately indefinable with deceased paperwork and named affixed to the bottom of the urn.
Transfer of Custody
Our staff will schedule a time to transfer custody of the cremated remains to a designated family as written instructions state. At this time we make available our facility for the family to have time for reflection.
Either preceding or following the cremation, our staff will assist in the planning of an event celebrating the lifetime of a loved one. A meaningful event provides family and friends an opportunity to remember and share cherished memories.
