Cremation

Every part of the funeral process is very personal. While some prefer for burial, others choose cremation and or entombment. No matter what a family chooses, all families receive the same respect and professionalism. At Tubman we not only help you in the beginning of your journey, counselling and developing with you a meaningful funeral service, we also have many resources to support you after the service . Please allow us to help you in your grief and give you the support and guidance you may need to heal. One of the resources that helps us support you is our own crematorium. This means that we can care for your loved one through the entire funeral process. We are able to perform cremations 7 days a week if necessary to meet your needs. In everything we do, we believe it’s important to create a service that reflects the life of the one you’ve lost. In addition to a customized funeral service there are many ways to create a personal cremation experience, including your choice of casket or cremation container, urns and commemorative jewelry and keepsakes. No matter what kind of funeral you’re planning, we can help you create an experience that will be just as unique as your loved one.

Cremation And What’s Involved

Cremation is an option that’s becoming increasingly popular. Some choose cremation because of its lower cost, some for religious reasons, and others because of environmental concerns. While it is becoming more popular, many people still do not know a lot about the cremation process.

During the cremation process, the casket or container is placed in the cremation chamber, where the temperature is raised to approximately 1,093°C. After approximately 2 hours, all organic matter is consumed by heat or evaporation. What’s left is bone fragments, known as cremated remains. The cremated remains are then carefully removed from the chamber. Any metal is removed with a magnet. The cremated remains are then processed into fine particles and are placed in the container provided by the crematorium or placed in an urn purchased by the family. The process takes approximately three hours.


Niches

Niches serve as dignified and peaceful resting places for loved ones’ cremated remains. Selecting a permanent memorial for a loved one not only satisfies an immediate need, but it also helps preserve family history. A memorial within a columbarium serves as a place for people to reflect and remember, which creates a lasting generational link.

St. James Anglican Cemetery

For those looking for a permanent memorial, we offer space within columbariums located at St. James Anglican Cemetery, Carp. Niches are available starting at $1,800.00. The interior size is 12” * 12” * 12”.
