Are any ashes left after the cremation of a baby?

At Baldarroch Chapel and Crematorium we operate procedures designed to minimise the potential for the small amount of ash being lost within the cremator. Turbulence within the cremation chamber is reduced, the use of a metal tray on which the small coffin is placed thus helping to protect the ash, and careful placement within the cremation chamber are some of the procedures employed. There may be some instances where it has not been possible to recover any ash however these are minimal.  More in depth details on our baby and infant cremation policy can be found here.
