You can be assured that our compassion transcends our professional manner. We have stringent guidelines and
a precise protocol to what you can see at our facility, as well as what you may not. As you might imagine, our business practices are under closer scrutiny than most businesses; none more than by our own supervisors,
and we’re proud of going beyond what’s required of us. So when we say “worry-free,” that’s our way of saying
the service we offer will exceed the most demanding standards possible—yours.
Five Steps Before Cremation
- Our wrist identification band is placed on your loved one at the time we return to the funeral home.
- The cremation container is labeled with your loved one’s name when they are placed into our secure refrigeration facility.
- Your loved one is logged into our facility logbook with name, date, time and driver’s name and the body is placed into our secure refrigeration facility.
- Our General Manager or Funeral Directors review all cremation paperwork and permits to insure authorization and permits have been processed.
- If you wish, the family may witness the cremation. Our state –of-the-art cremation facility is set up to allow family members to be present when the body is placed into the cremation chamber. In fact, some religious groups include this as part of their funeral custom. If you choose to have a final goodbye, we would be honored to make arrangements for a final goodbye as a part of our initial arrangements with the family.

Five Steps Before and After Cremation
- Your loved one is removed from our refrigeration facility and noted in our facility logbook. Log shows date and time of cremation and the crematory operator’s name.
- Our crematory checklist is always completed by two crematory operators. We double check identification band with paper work and cremation container label; check for jewelry; pacemakers; and any additional personal items that are to be placed inside the container prior to cremation. The crematory operators will confirm that we have an authorization completed and signed by the Legal Next of Kin, Burial Transit Permit, confirm that is has been 48 hours from the time of death, and the completed death certificate filed with the state.
- The crematory checklist and numbered identification tag are placed on the control panel of the cremation chamber during the cremation process.
- After the cremation is completed, the cremated remains are swept out and taken to the processing station and allowed to cool. The crematory check list and numbered identification tag are placed on the processing station until the processing of the cremated remains is completed.
- The number on the numbered identification tag and the cremation checklist are reviewed and a cremation certificate and label are created. Once the security information has been verified, the cremated remains are placed in the urn selected by the family or the temporary container.
