Cremations by Corey uses the following 10 Steps during the process.
1. Your loved one never leaves our care.
Many other funeral homes and cremation services, hire third party crematories. These funeral homes transfer your loved one to a third party crematory, making it impossible for the funeral home to manage and supervise the cremation.
We have our own on-site crematory so all your services are handled and managed by our certified staff and your loved one never leaves our care.
2. Safeguarding personal identity.
To ensure security, a personal identification band is placed on your loved one at the moment your loved one enters our care.
3. ID Lock tracking system.
Upon arrival, your loved one is logged into our tracking system and assigned an identification number. This number is used to track every phase of the cremation process. The number is also placed on a metal ID tag, which stay with your loved one throughout the process. Our tracking system includes date and time of arrival at our facility and name of the transfer technician. Personal belongings are cataloged and placed in a secure area for their return to the family.
4. Family Identification.
If you wish, immediately before cremation you may see your loved one to say goodbye. You can see that the crematory is clean. If you desire you can wait in our waiting room, read a book until the cremation is finished.
5. Checks and balances to ensure correct paperwork.
Two individuals, a cremation technician and a staff member, will review all cremation paperwork and permits. This is to ensure authorization and permits have been properly documented.
6. Cremation log book.
Immediately prior to the cremation process, the personal ID is noted in our cremation log book. This shows the name of the individual, date and time of the cremation, ID number and the crematory operator’s name. Our crematory log is dated and the start time is noted and initialed by a cremation technician before and after the cremation.
