The 10 Point Kramer Family Cremation Guarantee:
1. Your loved one never leaves our care
Many other funeral homes hire third party crematories, and have no secure system in place to positively identify the remains of your loved one. These funeral homes transfer your loved one to outside cremation services, making it impossible for the funeral home to manage and supervise the cremation.We have our own on-site crematory, so that your loved one never leaves our care. Unlike with others, you can be sure the cremated remains returned to you are those of your loved one.
2. Safeguarding personal identity
To ensure security, a personal identification band is placed with your loved one at the moment your loved one is transferred into our care.
3. Unique tracking system
Upon arrival, your loved one receives a unique identification number, which is stamped into a metal identification tag. This number is used to track every phase of the cremation process. Personal belongings placed in a secure area for their return to the family.
4. Family identification
Our staff will prepare and dress your loved one in the clothes provided by the family for a family visitation. Should your family desire a private family visitation our chapel is made available, free of charge.
