The Cremation Process

Cremation has been a part of the human death experience for a very long time. If you would like to understand more about the cremation process we invite you to read this section.

A Short History of Cremation

Cremation dates back almost to the beginning of time. Cremation was common in Ancient Greece and Rome, and it remains a standard practice in India. The practice of cremation faded in Europe by the fifth century and during the Middle Ages, it was primarily used in the punishment of heretics or in response to the fear of contagious diseases. Today, cremation is a widely accepted practice.

The Cremation Process

Cremation is the process of reducing the body through fire and intense heat to calcified bone fragments. These bone fragments are then processed into what we commonly call cremated remains. Returned to the family in the selected urn, cremated remains can be kept, buried, or scattered. Some families choose to place a portion of a loved one's cremated remains in a keepsake urn or cremation jewelry.

To begin the process a cremation container by the family.  The cremation container which has a special lining is required by provincial law and crematorium regulation to properly transport the body. The body is then placed in the container, transported to the crematorium, and then   placed in the cremation chamber.  The cremation takes approximately four hours to complete. When the cremated remains are cooled, they are processed to a uniformly-sized pebble-like consistency and placed in the urn.
