Frequently Asked Questions

Why do people choose cremation?

About eight out of ten Seattle and Portland area families choose cremation for a variety of religious, philosophic, economic, and environmental reasons. Many simply feel that cremation options afford them a more comfortable pathway toward a closure harmonious with their lifestyle.

Can more than one cremation be performed at once?

No. Not only is it a practical impossibility, but it is illegal to do so. The majority of modern cremation chambers are not of adequate size to house more than one adult. No reputable funeral home or crematory engages in practices such as this.

Are all cremated remains returned to the family?

With the exclusion of minuscule and microscopic particles, which are impossible to remove from the cremation chamber and processing machine, all of the cremated remains are returned to the family.

How am I sure the cremated remains I receive are those of my loved one?

Western Cremation Alliance has strict controls and monitoring in place to ensure that every person in our care is tracked properly. From the second your loved one is brought into our care, they’re identified with an ankle tag including their name and date of death. Before cremation, an ID number is assigned and stamped on a metal disk – this then accompanies your loved one throughout the cremation process, so we always know who is who.

How long does this process usually take?

We must obtain a signed death certificate signed by the deceased’s attending physician or the medical examiner prior to filing the cremation permit with the State of Washington. While some doctors are good at signing a death certificate immediately, others take several days. On average, the cremated remains should be ready in about 7 to 14 days.
