A 30-minute service conducted by a religious/secular celebrant or family member of choice that provides family members with a final viewing of the casket before the cremation. A service usually consists of an introduction, thoughts of deceased, and a prayer (if appropriate).
A viewing of the casket being placed into the cremator through a window in the committal suite.
The above services must be coordinated by a Funeral Director and advanced notice is required.

Please feel free to directly contact Lenox Cremation Services with any questions about the services they provide to the community. The crematorium’s staff is happy to open its doors to any visitor who would like more information on the entire cremation process, as it comes at a very emotional time of the human experience.
We have created a 10 step tutorial to overview the cremation process along with offering a guide to our cremation process.
The deceased are either picked up or dropped off to the Crematorium by a licensed professional.
The deceased is identified with a name card and unique ID number upon arrival to the facility
and it stays with the remains until collected by the funeral director or a designated person.
The deceased is then placed into a walk-in cold storage room until cremation takes place.
At the time of cremation, the deceased is placed into the cremator in the same condition as arrival.
(in no circumstances is the cremation container or casket ever to be opened by Lenox Staff)
The typical cremation of an adult person of average height and weight takes about 90-minutes.
The remains are removed from the cremator and transferred to a cooling chamber.
Once cooled, the remains are placed into a transfer container where any metal residues are removed for recycling.
The remains are then placed into the cremulator for reduction and this typically takes 10-minutes.
The cremains are then transferred into a suitable travel container and stored in a temporary deposit.
The cremains are finally picked up or dropped off to the funeral director with a certificate of cremation guaranteeing authenticity.
