Cremation processes are currently carried out using specialised and proven techniques which vary greatly from the original methods used which were generally unsanitary and likely to generate health problems.
Introduction: The coffin containing the deceased is placed on the tray of the cremation oven, in accordance with Spanish law.
Identification: An incombustible stone plaque showing the deceased’s initials and an identification code is placed on top of the coffin. This plaque remains with the deceased during the entire cremation process and is later placed into the urn along with the ashes. The coffin also carries a plaque identifying the deceased to guard against any possible confusion during the process.
Process: The cremation process begins once the coffin has been placed in the oven and lasts around two hours.
Delivery of ashes: The ashes are placed in an urn and delivered to the family. Should the urn not be collected, Cementiris de Barcelona will bury them in the Garden of Rest.
Cementiris de Barcelona offers different services in order for families and loved ones to make their last farewell to the deceased in a peaceful environment. One such service is the musical accompaniment during the ceremony.
At the Collserola Cemetery crematorium, you are able to say farewell to the deceased, attend the cremation and scatter the ashes in one of the designated ash gardens.
All the contracted services will be paid only by card or for bank transfer.
