Why You Need an On-Site Crematory: The Importance of Dignity and Respect in Final Services

When a loved one dies, it is important to ensure that their cremation services are carried out with dignity and respect. This means ensuring that they are treated with the utmost care and compassion from the time of death until their final resting place. One way to do this is by having an on-site crematory. Here at our Windsor Healdsburg Mortuary & Crematory, we believe that having an on-site crematory is one of the most important things we can offer our families.


Many funeral companies hire third-party crematories, which are often located in warehouse districts or other industrial-type regions, which some people are unaware of. These funeral homes transport your loved ones to these outside cremation providers and leave them there for days or weeks until they are cremated. It's possible that everything will turn out fine, but they can't promise you that. A funeral director or licensed crematory operator can't know if cremation was done correctly and ethically unless they can control and supervise the procedure from start to end.


Reasons Why Our On-site Crematory is the Best


Your loved one will never leave our care.

There are many reasons why an on-site crematory is so important. First and foremost, it ensures that the body of the deceased is never transported out of our care. This eliminates the risk of any mishandling or mistreatment, which can be especially important in cases where the death was unexpected or sudden. It also allows us to provide a higher level of dignity and respect for the deceased, which is so important in these final moments.


We are in complete control.

An on-site crematory also allows us to maintain complete control over the cremation process from beginning to end. This means that we can ensure that all safety and ethical standards are followed, as well as verify that the ashes returned to the family are those of the deceased. You can trust that our on-site crematory operators will handle your loved one with the utmost care and respect, in accordance with your wishes.


It's more affordable than you think.

Another important benefit of having an on-site crematory is that it can be more affordable than you think. In many cases, having the cremation take place at our funeral home can actually save money when compared to arranging for a third-party crematorium. This is because we do not charge facility or transportation fees like some other providers might.


We follow a strict pre-cremation checklist.
