Sumner Voiles Cremation Services

Cremation is a method of disposing of a dead body to bone fragments using water or high heat. The process usually takes about one to three hours, depending on the weight and size of the body. Sumner Voiles offers two types of cremation services:

Fire-Based Cremation

In a fire-based cremation, the body is placed in a cremation chamber with high heat to reduce the body into bone remains. After receiving your loved one’s dead body, we first store it in a temperature-controlled room until we get a cremation approval. We prepare the body by removing any implanted medical devices with a battery or pacemakers that can explode in high heat. Our staff will then transfer the body to the cremating chamber to start the cremation process.

Once the body is cremated, any fillings or hip replacements are recycled, as they can interfere with processing of the cremated remains. The remains are then pulverized and poured into an urn. An average human body can produce about 3 to 9 pounds of ash, depending on its bone structure. Don’t worry; we can provide you with an urn for your loved one’s ashes.

Planning or Pre-Planning a Cremation

Whether you’re pre-planning a cremation for yourself or a loved one, or a family member has just died, we have the tools to make the process quicker and easier for you.

Your funeral director will provide you with all the documents needed to get cremation approval. A physician will also need to sign the death certificate.
