Frequently Asked Question

What procedures are followed to ensure that cremated remains/ashes are kept separate?

A cremator can physically accept only one coffin at a time and all remains are removed before the cremator can be used again. Following the cremation process, all Cremated Remains/Ashes are retained awaiting final disposal in separate containers which are suitably identified at all times. The identity card referred to previously accompanies the coffin and cremated remains/ashes throughout the process until final disposal, whether that is by dispersal in the Gardens of Remembrance or collection from the crematorium for final disposal elsewhere. The code of ethics and practical necessity are complementary and combine to ensure that the separation of cremated remains/ashes is achieved.
