2- Filling and completion of all the required legal documents such as death certificate and authorization for cremation
3- The body is respectfully placed in an ‘alternative container’- a thick-walled cardboard box having a lid.
4- The actual cremation of the body in the cremation chamber. Also known as retort or cremator, it is an industrial furnace designed for fragmentation of the body.
5- The return of the cremated remains (Ashes), by the funeral home to the family of a corpse, in a cremation container- a cardboard box or simple plastic.
Why Choose Direct Cremation?

1- No need to bear the expenses of the funeral event.
