PRIVATE: The cremation of the Decedent's remains may take place before or after ceremonies to memorialize the Decedent. Cremation is performed to prepare the remains of the Decedent for final disposition. It is carried out by placing the Decedent's remains in the casket or alternative container, which is then placed into a cremation chamber where they are subjected to intense heat and flame. All cremations are performed individually. Through the use of suitable fuel, the incineration of the container and its contents is accomplished, and all substances are consumed or driven off, except bone fragments (calcium compounds) and metal as the temperature is not sufficient to consume them. Due to the nature of the cremation process, any personal possessions, or valuable materials, such as dental gold or jewelry (as well as any body prostheses or dental bridgework) that are left with the remains and not removed prior to cremation may be destroyed or if not destroyed, will be disposed of by the Crematory.
