The cremation process at Western Lithuanian Crematorium takes only 1.5 hours. This time is counted from the moment the remains of the deceased are placed in the cremation unit until the urn with the remains is handed over to the relatives. The entire cremation process is carried out in accordance with the requirements and steps adopted in world practice.
PREPARATION FOR CREMATION
Before the remains are loaded into the cremation unit, the coffin is first prepared for the cremation process. The coffin is stripped of metal attributes and then placed with the deceased’s remains on a special mechanism in front of the cremation gate. The coffin and remains are slowly moved into the incinerator.
The initial cremation stage takes about 15 minutes. Once the coffin has burned, the relatives of the deceased are given the opportunity to observe the cremation process.
The view from the cremation furnace can be monitored on a computer screen or through an eyepiece built into the unit.
COOLING OF THE REMAINS AND DELIVERY TO THE RELATIVES
In the cremation unit, the remains are first incinerated at a temperature of almost 1,000 degrees. This is followed by the next level, during which the organic material in the remains is converted into inorganic material. At the third level of the facility, the process of cooling the remains begins. All these stages take about one hour.
PLACING THE REMAINS IN THE CAPSULE
Once the remains have cooled, the ashes are placed in a standard metal capsule. The size of the capsule depends on the amount of remains. In each case, a container is chosen to hold all the cremated remains of the deceased.
An environmentally friendly facility that meets the highest modern quality standards and offers a wide range of modern cremation and burial services.
