"Your loved one doesn't leave our care."
"To better serve the communities, we own and operate our own crematory."
Cremation is the technical process that reduces human remains to bone fragments. This reduction takes place through heat and evaporation. Our crematory completes a cremation in just over 2 hours. This 15 foot long unit is comprised of two chambers. The lower chamber is larger and houses the main burner, which actually completes the cremation. The upper chamber is smaller and holds the afterburner. The purpose of the afterburner is to complete any further evaporation as necessary. Both chambers heat to over 1800 degrees. After the cremation, the remains are gathered, then processed in a unit that reduces the bone to fragments. These cremated remains are then placed in a container or urn.
Ohio law requires that 24 hours pass before a cremation takes place; we do own a body cooling unit to hold the body, when embalming does not take place.
Most historians generally agree that cremation began in any real sense during the early stone age, most likely in Europe. Since the invention of the cremation chamber in 1872 by Professor Brunetti of Italy, cremation has become and expanded means of disposition.
