Cremation Procedures

The Identification Process:

  • At the time of removal of the deceased, an ankle band with the name of the deceased, date of death and place of death is attached to the deceased and not removed
  • Each family is offered an opportunity to identify their loved one prior to the cremation process
  • Every casket has a name tag affixed. Cremation caskets and containers, prior to being transported to the crematory have a label affixed to the lid. This tag contains the name and all necessary information to the crematory
  • Attached to the paperwork delivered to the crematory, with each deceased, is a metal disk that is placed inside the cremation chamber and survives the cremation procedure. This disk is imprinted with a number that has been assigned to each deceased that will be cremated. Following the cremation procedure this disk is attached to the outside of the plastic pouch that holds in the cremated remains inside the urn or final container
