The Cremation Process

Cremation has been a part of the human death experience for a very long time. If you would like to understand more about the cremation process we invite you to read this section. We'll also take a look at cremation costs that will help you with your decision.

A Short History of Cremation

According to Wikipedia, cremation service burials date back at least 20,000 years ago in Australia, while in Europe, there is evidence of cremation dating to around 2,000 B.C. Cremation was common in Ancient Greece and Rome, and it remains a standard practice in India. The practice of cremation faded in Europe by the fifth century and during the Middle Ages, it was primarily used in the punishment of heretics or in response to the fear of contagious diseases. Today, cremation is preferred by more and more people around the world.

The Flame Cremation Process

Neil Bardal Funeral Centre uses a traditional cremation process, of reducing a body at very high temperatures until it is nothing but brittle, calcified bones. These are then processed into what we refer to as Cremated Remains. Returned to the family in a temporary urn (or a more personal urn selected by the family), these Cremated Remains can be kept, buried, or scattered. Some families even choose to place a loved one's Cremated Remains in a hand-crafted piece of cremation art.

Within our facility, deceased are received, identified, and recorded and held in cool storage in a cardboard cremation container.

The container is placed in one of our two cremation chambers (the retort) and the process can take about 2 to 3 hours at a temperature of 1600 F. When the cremated remains are cooled, they are hand sorted to remove anything not of the body (metal fragments, medical implants, etc.) and processed to a pebble sized consistancy and placed in the urn or container as specified by the family.

Cremation Costs

Cremation costs will vary depending upon the wishes of the deceased and family traditions and wishes. While it's true that cost is a big factor for many families, it's important to remember that cremation is only one part of providing meaningful end-of-life care for a loved one. Coming to terms with the death of a loved one is important and can be achieved with a memorial service. Bringing family and friends together provides everyone with the opportunity to share memories and receive support.
