We provide first class services to those we serve in Montgomery County and surrounding communities. Your loved one never leaves our care.

 

Ensuring that our families have a high degree of confidence in the cremation process, we have developed this “Worry Free” Cremation Process.

“Worry Free” Cremation

1. The “wrist identification band” is placed on your loved one at the time we come to your home,

    hospital or other care facility.

2. The cremation container is labeled with your loved one’s name when they are placed into the

    secure refrigeration facility.

3. Your loved one is logged into the facility logbook with name, date, time and driver’s name and then

    placed into the secure refrigeration facility.

4. The General Manager or Office Manager reviews all cremation paperwork and permits to insure

    authorizations and permits have been received and a manager must sign the crematory checklist.

5. If you wish, the family may witness the cremation. The 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 traditions include this as part of their funeral custom. At this point, the body is not

    embalmed; therefore the body may not be viewed in the cremation facility. If you choose to have a

    final goodbye, we would be honored to make arrangements for a final goodbye as a part of the

    initial arrangements with the family. See the many options for viewing within this guide.

Five Steps During and After “Worry Free” Cremation Process

1. Your loved one is removed from our refrigeration facility and noted in our facility logbook. Log shows

    date and time of cremation and crematory operator’s name.

2. The crematory checklist is dated; start time noted and signed immediately before and after the

    cremation takes place.

3. The crematory checklist and numbered identification tag are placed on the control panel of the

    cremation chamber during the cremation process.

4. After the cremation is completed, the cremated remains are collected and taken to the processing

    station. The crematory checklist and numbered identification tag are placed on the processing

    station until the processing of the cremated remains is complete.

5. The number on the numbered identification tag and the cremation checklist are reviewed and a

    cremation certificate and label are created prior to the placement of the cremated remains in the

    urn selected by the family, or the temporary container. Once all the security information has been

    verified, the cremated remains are placed in the urn.
