Frequently Asked Questions

How does the cremation process work?

  1. All cremations are done individually.
  2. A rigid, combustible, covered container is used to hold the decedent and placed in the cremation chamber.
  3. The total process takes between four and five hours including the cremation itself and the cooling of remains.
  4. 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.
  5. An average amount of remains will be approximately five pounds and will vary in color depending on a number of factors.
