Why is Having an Onsite Crematory Important?
Your deceased family member never leaves our care We are among the very few funeral homes to operate our own crematory on-site in a clean and secure facility. We personally handle the disposition from the initial pick up or removal of your loved one through the entire cremation process. This offers an assurance to families that many other funeral providers cannot offer.
We cremate only one person at a time. It takes more effort to ensure that the cremation is handled with care, dignity, and high standards. To assure your loved one is being cared for appropriately, we adhere to a rigid 14 Point Cremation Checklist and involve two staff members in every cremation process.
Our staff members are certified We are licensed and certified with the Florida Board of Funeral, Cemetery and Consumer Services. "Department of Financial Services" We strictly adhere to a Cremation Code of Ethics, an assurance to you of our commitment to dignity and honesty.
Understanding the cremation process Cremation is the clean and ecologically safe process of reducing a body to its basic elements. During a cremation, the casket or container holding the deceased is placed in the cremation chamber. The chamber temperature reaches up to 1800 degrees Fahrenheit.
After a couple of hours, the cremated remains are carefully removed from the cremation chamber. The remains are then processed into a material called "cremated remains." Our cremation experts then place the cremated remains in a temporary container or an urn chosen and purchased by the family. Throughout the entire process, we use a carefully controlled labeling system to ensure accurate identification of the cremated remains. This process follows our commitment to providing the highest standard of care.
It’s All about Trust and Transparency
The importance of having our own on-site crematory just can’t be overstated. It means there is no need for additional transportation charges or scheduling problems with another crematory facility. Our families who choose cremation can expect thorough privacy, convenience and respect since we have complete control in the handling of the entire cremation process.
