What Does Cremation Entail?

Making
Arrangements

Cremation services with us are simple and handled with great care and dignity. Once you contact us, we will immediately arrange to bring your deceased loved one into our care. We take care of all applicable legal requirements, such as registering the death and filing for appropriate permits. When all legal considerations are met, we proceed with the cremation. 

The Cremation
Process

The cremation itself is the process by which the remains of the deceased will be reduced to ashes. The remains are positively identified. They are placed within a cremation container which will also be consumed in this process. After being sent into the cremation chamber, extreme heat is then applied. This can take a few hours for an average-sized body to be fully processed. 

Ashes
Returned

After cooling, all of the remaining elements within the chamber are carefully collected. There are bone fragments that will not have fully disintegrated. These bone fragments are then further processed to a more uniform consistency. This is what we commonly refer to as the “ashes.” These ashes are then placed within a container of your choosing, typically an urn. You can pick up the remains in person, or we can deliver them to you if you prefer. 

Handled
With Care

It is essential to know that each cremation is handled individually. At no time will there be another set of remains in the cremation chamber with your loved one. Careful identification and protocols help us keep each set of remains safe until we return them to your care. 

Traditional Cremation Services And Other Options

You can also choose traditional funeral services with our company. With attention to detail, our professional staff will help you create this service to honor your loved one. Your loved one will be prepared for private or public viewing with embalming. You can have this viewing (also sometimes referred to as a visitation) prior to the funeral. After the funeral services, we will assist you through the interment of your loved one. 

If a traditional funeral doesn’t seem to fit your situation, you can also choose to hold a memorial or graveside service. In each case, you will have the services of our staff and funeral director. However you wish to proceed, we are ready to help you at Alabama Cremation and Funeral Services for all of your cremation services in Birmingham, AL.

Pre-planning for future needed cremation services is gaining popularity in our country. It is a beautiful gift to give your family members who survive you. It takes away just a little bit of the stress they will face after you pass. They will know what you would prefer for your final arrangements. 

In choosing to pre-purchase your selections, you save money by hedging against inflation-related price increases.
