The formal definition of cremation is the reduction of human remains by intense heat over a period of time.
No, we often surprise people when they say choose cremation for their funeral service, and we reply how would you like that service.
Depending on the size of the person, normally 2-3 hours at 1800 degrees Fahrenheit.
An alternative container is a durable cardboard and wood box that is used to transport the body to the crematory and is cremated along with the body.
Think of it as a small urn. It cannot hold all of the ashes, only a portion, and can be used for personal items of deceased.
It is very nice for families who want to keep a part of their loved one with them, such as jewelry or a personal object of the deceased . This is also very similar to reason people desire cremation jewelry.
There are a few differences between Ohio and Georgia, when that occurred. One is that Ohio regulates crematories. Meaning there are laws that govern every crematory in this state, Georgia did not have any when that occurred. We own and operate our crematory ensuring it is functioning properly as we are required to do. We can arrange for a family member to watch the cremation if they wish to ensure. We also know the difference between ashes and cremated wood chips and cement. Our crematory is located at 5542 Butterbridge Rd NW, Canal Fulton, OH 44614.
The crematory places a stainless steel tag in with every cremation. This tag has an identification number imprinted on it, and remains with the cremains at all times. We personally deliver the remains and pick-up the cremains at the crematory.
