Preparing your loved one for cremation

Understanding the cremation process can help us feel more comfortable when making this decision for ourselves or on behalf of a loved one who’s passed. Below, we outline the steps that are taken to prepare a body for cremation and how we support you and your family throughout the process.

Understanding the cremation process

From the first moment your loved one enters our care, we’ll ensure they’re looked after with dignity and respect. When the time comes for the cremation process to begin, we’ll transfer them to our facilities, a trusted partner or a state crematorium, depending on their location. The cremation process then follows several steps, each handled with great care and sensitivity.
