Locate A Crematorium

Crematoriums often put the ashes in an urn.

The process is very humane and the families often request the ashes to be placed in an urn or even small capsules. The crematorium is just one funeral-service option families can choose for their loved one.


1. Use the internet or phonebook to locate a crematorium in your city. You may need to search under terms such as: cremation, funeral services, mortuary, or crematory. Contact the company and ask them exactly the services they offer. Question them about the hours of operation, the prices, and how they operate. Check to see if they are licensed, and ask for references on their past clients.

2. Ask relatives or friends if they know of anyone who has used a crematorium. Ask them if they were satisfied with the services the company provided and if they did the job that they had expected.

3. Enlist the help of a professional funeral parlor. These companies have a many contacts with various crematoriums and can suggest one to fit your needs. You can get good information from the funeral director as to pricing, their location and any other information you may deem necessary.
