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.
