How does the cremation process work?
- All cremations are done individually.
- A rigid, combustible, covered container is used to hold the decedent and placed in the cremation chamber.
- The total process takes between four and five hours including the cremation itself and the cooling of remains.
- Anything that is not a cremated remain (e.g. medical implants) is removed and the remains are processed and reduced to a smaller, uniform size.
- An average amount of remains will be approximately five pounds and will vary in color depending on a number of factors.
