Code of Cremation Practice

In the practice of cremation, we believe:

  • In dignity and respect in the care of Human Remains, in compassion for the living who survive them and in the memorialization of the dead;
  • That a Cremation Authority should be responsible for creating and maintaining an atmosphere of respect at all times;
  • That the greatest care should be taken in the appointment of crematory staff members, any of whom must not by conduct or demeanor bring the crematory or cremation into disrepute;
  • That cremation should be considered as preparation for memorialization;
  • That the dead of our human society should be memorialized through a commemorative means suitable to the survivors.
  • Cremation Association of America Co.
