Almost 80% of those who passed away last year in our local region were cremated. In Alberta, a deceased person is required to be cremated in a rigid container. This is for the protection of the crematory operator. After cremation has taken place, another container (urn) is required to house the remains.
Rigid containers include, but are not limited to:
Cardboard box with lid - weight restricted to 185 lb or 60kg
Trundle tray, and then into
Cremation Caskets, if that is your request
Photos of containers to be included
Every family has unique circumstances at the death of a loved one. We've developed a few different containers that will fit most needs. We also have access to many others through suppliers.
Website redevelopment underway. New content coming shortly.
When it comes to cremation urns, again, every family has unique circumstances. The choices available are extensive. Consider where and how your family will complete a final disposition of the remains.
Cremated remains will be returned in a cardboard box unless urn/urns are purchased or provided. A provided or custom crafted urn should accommodate for about 550 cubic inches - this is about the size of a 5lb bag of sugar.
Do you require one single urn?
What about small keepsakes for individuals?
Will you be scattering? All or just a portion?
Some individuals may prefer a piece of keepsake jewelry.
There are very few restrictions on scattering remains in Alberta. Here are the guidelines as provided by Service Alberta.
Remember, scattering remains is an irreversible action. Many individuals underestimate the emotional attachment (grief) that is held by family remains.
The following links will provide you with a broad range of cremation and urn products that are available through Pine Box Funerals.
