Will Funeral Homes Ever Try to Cremate Two Bodies at One Time?

Many families worry that their loved one’s cremated remains might get mixed up with someone else’s remains during cremation services. But this simply isn’t possible.

At this point, most people are familiar with cremation services in West Jordan, UT and what they entail. There aren’t as many myths surrounding cremation anymore now that cremations have become more popular than traditional burials. But there are still some people out there who have misconceptions about cremation services. Most notably, there are some people who are under the impression that their loved one’s cremated remains could potentially get mixed up with someone else’s cremated remains during cremation.

We’re here to tell you that this is not possible. Reason being, two bodies cannot be cremated at one time during a cremation. There are a variety of reasons why this is not allowed to happen under any circumstances. Continue reading to learn more about why you don’t have to worry about two bodies being cremated at once during cremation services.

It’s illegal.

There are all kinds of rules and regulations that have been set up with regards to West Jordan, UT cremations. Funeral homes are required to follow these rules and regulations to avoid losing their licenses. One of the biggest rules associated with cremation is that funeral homes cannot cremate more than one body at a time. Funeral homes also have to clean up crematories in between cremations to ensure that there is no chance of the cremated remains of one person coming into contact with the cremated remains of another person.

It’s physically impossible.

Let’s say that, for whatever reason, a funeral home decided that they were going to break the law by attempting to cremate two bodies at one time. They would quickly discover that it would not be possible for them to do this. This is because cremation chambers aren’t large enough to fit two bodies, even if those two bodies are on the smaller side. There is only enough room in a cremation chamber to carry out one cremation at a time before moving on to the next one.

It’s against the policies established by reputable funeral homes.

The very best funeral homes have long cremation processes that are designed to make sure that everything goes according to plan during cremation services. From positively identifying a person’s body to conducting the actual cremation, these processes map out every movement that crematory employees will make during a cremation. These processes also ensure that funeral homes take every precaution possible to steer clear of having the remains from two people mixed up together. You won’t have to spend any time worrying about this happening when you work with a funeral home that has a strong cremation process in place.
