Clean, secure crematory
We are among the very few funeral homes in the area to operate our own crematory inside our clean and secure facility. Most funeral homes in our area offer cremation from garages, industrial warehouses, contract crematories and other substandard facilities. Don't settle for these second-rate cremation services. Turn to Tufts Schildmeyer for superior care.
Our experienced professionals handle each cremation with care and dignity, all while adhering to the highest standards. To assure your loved one is being cared for appropriately, we follow a rigid Pre-Cremation Checklist in every cremation.
Additionally, we are the region's first crematory to encourage each family's personal inspection of our facilities. We also offer a special viewing room located next to our crematory for those who wish to be present for the start of the cremation.
As members of the Cremation Association of North America, our staff receives advanced certifications to perform cremations. We strictly adhere to a Cremation Code of Ethics, an assurance to you of our commitment to dignity and honesty.
Understanding the cremation process
Cremation is the clean and ecologically safe process of reducing a body to its basic elements. During a cremation, the casket or container holding the deceased is placed in the cremation chamber. The chamber temperature reaches up to 1650 degrees Fahrenheit.
After a couple of hours, the cremated remains are carefully removed from the cremation chamber. The remains are then processed into a material called "cremated remains." Our cremation experts then place the cremated remains in a temporary container or an urn chosen and purchased by the family. Throughout the entire process, we use a carefully controlled labeling system to ensure accurate identification of the cremated remains. This process follows our commitment to providing the highest standard of care.
