How soon after the service will the cremation take place?


fbcaThe Federation of Burial and Cremation Authorities (FBCA) Code of Cremation Practice states that the coffin and the body shall be placed in a cremator and cremation commenced as soon as practicable after the service of committal.  All cremations at Baldarroch Chapel and Crematorium are carried out within 24hour and under normal circumstances the cremation is usually carried out shortly after the service and usually on the same day. However, when a service takes place late in the day or a limited number of services are booked, the cremations may take place within the 24 hour period.  The benefits to the community from this include a reduced impact on the environment as less fossil fuel will be consumed and the efficient use of machinery and equipment will be achieved.
