Our 10 Point Guarantee
1. Your loved one is always in our care
Many other funeral homes hire third party crematories, and have no system in place positively identify the remains of your loved one. These other funeral homes transfer your loved one to outside crematories, thus making it impossible for the funeral home to direct and supervise the cremation process. Our crematory is on-site, so your loved one never leaves our care. Unlike other funeral homes, you can be sure the cremated remains returned to you are those of your loved one.
2. Safeguarding personal identity
To ensure accuracy, a personal identification band is placed with your loved one the moment your loved one is transferred to our funeral home and cremation center.
3. Secure tracking system
Upon arrival, your loved one receives a unique identification number. This number is used to track every phase of the cremation process. Personal belongings are placed in a secure area for safekeeping until they are returned to the family.
4. Family identification
Family visitations can be held at Kramer Family's chapel. Our professional staff will dress your loved one in the clothes provided by the family for a family visitation.
5. Ensuring authorizations received
All cremation paperwork and permits are reviewed by our staff to ensure authorizations and permits have been received and properly documented.
6. Cremation record
Immediately prior to the cremation process, your loved one is taken to our private crematory and their personal identification is noted in our cremation log records.
7. Details during the cremation
A cremation authorization signed by the next of kin, a state issued cremation permit, and a metal identification tag are placed on the crematory during the cremation process.
8. Details after the cremation
After the cremation is complete, the cremated remains are placed with the metal identification tag into an urn. The authorizations are placed in our permanent files.
9. Return of the cremated remains
Our staff will notify you to schedule a time for receipt of the cremated remains.
10. Celebration of life
Our staff is specially trained to conduct Life Celebration Services, and will assist in planning a funeral or memorial service, either before or after cremation. A meaningful ceremony provides an opportunity for family and friends to pay tribute and share the memories of a lifetime.
